Hey guys! Welcome to this weeks vlog! I’m about 4 weeks into being an FNP and man am I really ready to be more efficient at work. The whole transition from expert to novice Is starting to get to me, which I’ll discuss a bit in the video. This week the whole family was in a bit of a funk, which we will discuss a bit, and I’ll explain what I usually do in order to help get out of weird moods. Other things I did this week: worked more independently at work, applied for my NPI number, and shared some recipes! Hope you all had a great first week back to school if you were starting back up again!
Pathophysiology and Advanced Pathophysiology are some of the hardest classes in nursing and NP school! But you can absolutely pass them, and this video has some of my tips to help you get there! In this video I’ll go over how I decide what I’m going to read in patho, my methods for skimming information, and where I find additional information to supplement my learning. Advanced patho in particular really made me get creative with how I found and digested information, since there wasn’t a lot of lecture, and I’m not someone who learns well from books. I’ll throw out some helpful ways for auditory and visual learners as well as give my favorite tips for studying. Hope it helps! And remember, you CAN do this. Just take it one day at a time!

This week we looked at some model homes in our new city! And boy were we in for a shock when we realized we can’t afford to live..anywhere! haha. I’ll go on one of my usual tangents about that, and talk about how I’m coming to realize what’s really important in our life. This week also brought my first independent afternoon in the clinic! It was a good learning experience, but I definitely still need my training wheels before flying solo.
Pharmacology is one of the scariest classes in nursing and NP school due to the insane amount of information that we are expected to learn! In today’s video, I’ll share my study tips that I’ve learned from two rounds of pharmacology so that you will hopefully have an easier time than I did! This video offers tips for nursing students, nurse practitioner students, and CNS students as I used similar methods for advanced pharmacology and traditional pharmacology.
