Techniques for Nursing Content

In nursing school, there is a heavy-load of readings. Nursing students have to know new terms, best practice, and case studies! This semester I will be more efficient with my readings by implementing these techniques on reading a textbook.

  1. Gaze over the chapter title, headings, and subheadings to get a general idea of will be presented.
  2. Skip to the chapter summary to get more sense of the chapter
  3. Review chapter questions
  4. Inspect the vocabulary list even if each term is not immediately identified, to focus on the generally ideas
  5. Pay extra attention to images and diagrams while reading. More information could made out of them than simply words
  6. Begin reading! Review content after each paragraph and begin to piece together the entire concept
  7. Answer the chapter questions again to test your knowledge
