How to Pass Nursing School: Finally An All in One Book Breaks It Down

See also

Anyone considering going to nursing school to become a registered nurse has surely heard the horror stories of incredibly long hours of training, mentally exhausting studies, practically impossible exams, and high student turn-over rates. Unfortunately, many potential nursing students do not even get into the field because of these horror stories. They have let others talk them out of going to nursing school or believe that they are not smart enough to get through the amount of schooling required.

In a book recently released by Sarah L. Page, "How to Pass Nursing School" takes a bottom up approach to the challenges facing potential and current registered nurses. She delves out valuable information on what to expect while one is in nursing school and breaks down the stigma of getting into nursing school.

Using examples from her own life and how she succeeded in not only getting into nursing school but also passing the NCLEX-RN exam and finding work as a registered nurse upon her graduation, Page opens up one’s mind to the realities of nursing school and how to succeed.

From high schoolers looking to get career start into the profession to adults looking to make a career change, the concepts covered in the book enable every curious individual to see if nursing is a good fit for them. Topics covered include: preparing for nursing school, nursing programs, financial aid considerations, exams, and finding a job after nursing school.

Page, a registered nurse herself, goes on to state how much easier nursing school would have been had she had her own personal mentor to guide her through the rough patches. Although nursing is not seen as a glamorous career, individuals are drawn into this field to make a difference in another person’s life.

In fact, it was out of this necessity that she created her own website that delved into the issues facing nursing students: the pros and cons of the nursing industry as well as the human and caring aspect.

Florence Nightingale once said, "Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation, as any painter's or sculptor's work; for what is the having to do with dead canvas or dead marble, compared with having to do with the living body, the temple of God's spirit? It is one of the Fine Arts: I had almost said, the finest of Fine Arts."
