Peds has totally shut me down. Doesn’t help that my teacher speaks a mile a second & does not give reviews at all. It is my lowest grade I’ve ever gotten in nursing school. I can’t deal. I’m taking OB and psych simultaneously... I don’t have time to shut down rn 😩
Thank you for this video.
I''m in my second semester of an RN program and I failed the first exam, but not by much, changed my study and test taking methods and I did even worse on the second! Needless to say I broke down.
I'm meeting with my instructor soon. I'm still salvageable because of my high quiz grades. I really think my whole approach needs to be revised. Your videos have been helping a lot!
I just went through my Med-Surg HESI and I failed. I have a Mother-Baby HESI on Wednesday. I studied and prepared so hard. I went through all your videos to help with studying. I even fo practice questions. I don't know where I am going wrong. I feel discouraged and rethinking my decision to be a nurse. :-(
You may want to check out these videos I have. It is about answering NCLEX style questions which is how your exams are set-up in nursing school.

I hope this helps :)
Hello Kala :) Thank you so much for watching my videos....I appreciate it very much! I will definitely be covering GI in the near future. Right now, I'm covering cardiovascular and then respiratory (due to high viewer requests). Then I will do the GI system after that. Thank you for the suggestion and for subscribing to my channel ;-)
+Nicole Ferrel I know what you mean...every time a new edition comes out they are way more expensive. For the Mary Ann Hogan books, I think it would be okay to buy the other edition that came out right before the new one. However, when prepping for the HESI, NCLEX, or ATIs exams I would always go with the latest...just because they change their content focuses on the exams. I hope that helps :)
Wooow, you're usually not allowed to retake a test!?! In northern europe you can fail I think three times after which you have to take the course again next year. But you will NOT be kicked out of school (unless you are deemed absolutely unsuitable, mentally unstable, drug use etc.). Interesting.
+Hanna MO Thanks for sharing your experience in Northern Europe. Typically, in nursing school in the US a lecture exam is administered once and what you score you are stuck with it. Unless, the professor agrees to a repeat examination. You are only kicked out of nursing school if you fail the whole class (meaning you failed multiple exams). I always enjoy reading how things on conducted aboard. Thank again for sharing :)
great advise your words are encouraging just got into my first semester in nursing and my midterm is close finding it hard to understand pathophysiology are they any web link i can get study guide or video lessons to help me
+oluku igho Thank you so much, Oluku! I appreciate your comment very much! Patho is an intense class and I can feel your pain with it. I highly recommend the study guide by Maryann Hogan for Patho: http://www.amazon.com/Pearson-Reviews-Rationales-Pathophysiology-Nursing/dp/0133249778/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1458264803&sr=8-1&keywords=pathophysiology+maryann+hogan
You can find it on amazon.com and it helps break down the material you need to know for tests...it should help you for your midterm. I also suggest searching on YouTube for concepts you are covering class. Many people on here have uploaded really good information videos that helps breakdown the content. Hang in there...I promise not all nursing classes are hard like Patho :) I hope that helps!
+Carlos Mendoza Thank you very much for your comment, Carlos! Yes, most definitely get a study guide and that should help. Study guides were my best friend during nursing school. Hang in there and I hope you do better on the next exam. Best wishes :)
