We all have slightly different learning styles, and you probably know yours by now. Make sure you tailor your studying to what works for you!
- If you understand concepts well with visuals, draw out rough sketches of cardiac chambers, color-coded medication classes, etc.
- If you are an auditory learner, there are plenty of YouTube lectures online and podcasts that cover NCLEX.
- If you learn best through discussion, be sure to create a study group to talk through concepts together.
As a general rule, using mnemonic devices help most students with harder to learn concepts. Don’t just reread, rewrite, and copy old notes. Try connecting concepts. Think about what you are learning from a holistic approach and relate it to clinical experiences you had in school.
