Cheryl’s Answer

My professors always advised that you would need 3 hrs of study time for every hour of class. Depends on the class of course and on your attention span. There are a lot of papers to be written in nursing, so that requires time reading papers, taking notes, then putting the final paper together.

Honestly, I studied at least four hours a day. Full time nursing school is expected to be your life. Study, chores, eat, study, sleep repeat. What you will find yourself looking for is time to relax. Make yourself a schedule before you start. When are you at your peak mental functioning? Study those hours, take a break go outside do something enjoyable for a half an hour then back to it. Plan out 2 hrs a week dedicated to something you enjoy and little breaks daily.

Belinda’s Answer

Hey Shay- Each person will be different on how much time you must dedicate to your books. For me, college was more demanding and harder than high school. There is more content to study more. Testing content can be on one or several chapters that you must read on your own time and there could be several test on different subjects that end up on the same day. If you are truly willing to be a nurse, you will find a balance between school and personal time, but put your school first. You will have breaks during the year that you can plan to reward yourself with free activities and take advantage of the free time when you get it. Good luck!

Eric’s Answer

Greetings Shay, there are several things for consideration. True there will be times
when you will or won't feel like you have time. Question you want to ask yourself
Do you want to be a nurse if your asking that question.
1. Depends time you value. Do you like to party become distracted too easily?
2. What do you know what the profession
demands. Other co-workers calling in sick and / or have emergencies / weather issues and you have to stay.
3. One recomendation adjust your thinking about not how much time to take off to go out side. But for what are you taking the time from?
4. Before studies no, during after one hour sitting get up stretch legs like riding in a car. You'll find your energy lasting longer and it will keep blood flow to legs.
5. Treat school like a job you are there to learn. Same with studying cut it in half.
Suggest depending on your subject matter easy / difficult to understand.
Hard subjects every 4 hours study take a 15 min out side breaks will help clear mind or thought perceptions. Then go back to work. Easy subjects that's up to you. But all I know from my midnight studies and having to also work a 8 hour job I couldn't think about the luxury of just going outside unless I was driving to school from work. I hope this helps, may you have a prosperous life in the name of Jesus
