June 2009 Nursing Board Exam Tips: Effective Time Management Skills for the June 2009 Nurse Licensure Examination

As the June 2009 Nurse Licensure Examination draws near, candidates need to effectively manage their time in order to cover nursing topics as comprehensively as possible. While you are not expected to study for the June 2009 Nurse Licensure Examination 24 hours a day, you are expected to organize your activities around a goal--passing the NLE with flying colors. Below are tips on how you can maximize your time as you prepare for the June 2009 Nurse Licensure Examination.

Being in Control

Being in control of your schedule is the key to effective time management skills. You need to KNOW three important things: WHAT, WHEN, and HOW. Being in control of your schedule needs you to be realistic. You have to know WHAT you need to do, WHEN you need to do it, and HOW you’re going to fit the things you need to do into your schedule. For example, you want to master the commonly prescribed psychotropic medications, you need to KNOW the following:

· WHAT to do-- prepare visual aids, flash cards

· WHEN you need to do it-- on 5/13

· HOW to fit activity into schedule-- work after dinner on 5/13

Being in control means you have a clear idea of what needs to be done, when you need to have it done, and how you are going to accommodate the activity into your schedule.

Being Realistic with your Study Goals and Deadlines

In studying for the June 2009 Nurse Licensure Examination, we have a major deadline. And that is at least 2-3 days before the exam date. You are not expected to study until the night before the exam because you owe yourself the much-needed rest and sleep.

To be able to maximize your study time, you have to have specific study goals and plan to meet deadlines. Having a study goal of mastering Psychiatric Nursing in a day is unrealistic. Everybody knows that it is one of the most challenging aspect of the Nurse Licensure Examination. So what you need to do is break down Psychiatric Nursing into smaller topics and give yourself ample time to master a specific topic. For example, for Day 1 of Psychiatric Nursing week, you may have the following study goals:

· Defense mechanisms, structure of personality, ego functions, MSE-- 8:00 am to 10:00 am

· Theories of Development-- 10:00 am to 12:00 noon

· Nursing Process, Therapeutic Communication-- 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm

When keeping deadlines, you need to have a tool so you can keep track of your goals and activities for the day. A daily planner which you can carry with you around is an ideal tool to remind you of the things that you need to do and when you need to get a specific activity done.

Studying with a Timetable

When you want to study effectively for the June 2009 Nurse Licensure Examination, you have to study with a timetable. Why? Well, effective study techniques necessitate following a well-organized timetable. Having your own study timetable will help you determine how many hours you need to study each day, help you keep track of your progress, and help you identify the time of day you are most alert and are able to cover the most difficult of nursing topics.

When studying for the Nurse Licensure Examination this June, making a weekly and daily plan will help. If you are committed to studying Psychiatric Nursing for a week, then make a weekly planner and then plan in advance the topics you need to study everyday and mark the corresponding number of hours you need to devote to a particular topic. Your timetable will also help you determine how many hours you spent studying on a particular concept and help you determine if you need to put in an additional hour of study for a particular nursing topic.

Creating that Study Space

Effective time management not only means you are doing the right task at the right time. It also means you are doing it at the right place. So when you want to maximize your study time as you prepare for the Nurse Licensure Examination this June 2009, make sure your study area is conducive for studying, well-lighted, and well-ventilated. You must also have all the materials you need for studying within reach so that precious time won’t be wasted looking for notes or references.

Sticking to a Schedule but Have Time for Important Things

Even if you wanted to earn very high marks in the June 2009 Nurse Licensure Examination, you need to live a balanced life. You are not expected to study 24 hours a day and logging in 8 hours a day of serious studying plus a couple of hours of active thinking each day (e.g. remembering your nursing mnemonics while taking a bath or exercising) is more than enough.

After long hours of study, make sure you get enough rest and sleep. You are also expected to nourish and hydrate yourself and engage in recreational activities. If you want to maximize your time as you prepare for the June 2009 Nurse Licensure Examination, you need to live a balanced life to help you stay focused to your goals.


June 2009 Nursing Board Exam Review Notes: The Nightingale Pledge

The Nightingale Pledge was written by a committee led by the late Lystra Gretter, Superintendent of the Farrand Training School for Nurses at Harper Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. The Nightingale Pledge was first used by the graduating class of the said nursing school in the spring of 1893.

The Nightingale Pledge

I solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly, to pass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully

I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous and will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug

I will do all in my power to maintain and elevate the standard of my profession, and will hold in confidence all personal matters committed to my keeping and all family affairs coming to my knowledge in the practice of my calling

With loyalty I will endeavour to aid the physician, in his work, and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care.
