3 Tips to Excel in Your Nurse Practitioner Program

You’ve done your research, the perfect Nurse Practitioner Program is waiting for you, the anticipation is building, and you can see your new career waiting. What’s not to be excited about? 

There are more than 270,000 nurse practitioners licensed in the U.S., according to the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, and around 28,700 new nurse practitioners completed their programs just last year. You are going to be in great company.

Excitement aside, though, things are about to get serious. But you already knew that. Picmonic is here to empower you – and all students – to unlock their true potential and achieve the education and career of their dreams. Let’s get started.

Manage your time

It isn’t a secret. Your life is going to revolve around your program, clinical rotations, exams, studying and everything else. To be successful, learning a new way to manage your time given all your new demands is going to be essential. This might be in addition to working full- or part-time, juggling a family and more. Use your calendar, budget your time and respect it like the valuable commodity that it is.   

Work with the people around you

This is a unique time when you are surrounded by experts, scholars and your future peers. Ask questions of these experts, be proactive and take advantage of opportunities, build relationships, study with your peers and support each other. You may have no idea now how impactful these relationships and experiences will be to your career.

Have a trusted study method

Figuring out how you learn and retain information is critical, and the sooner the better. You have a lot of options that may help you learn, review and practice. But what about retaining that information beyond the test?  Picmonic is a revolutionary new tool.  It’s a known fact — picture mnemonics work and they are so much more fun than text books. It’s efficient because you don’t have time for cumbersome study tools that give you more work. It’s effective because it can increase retention by 331% (you read that right) and exam scores by 50%. And, it’s customizable because there’s no right or wrong way to learn and retain information as long as you can actually use it.

Now, back to being excited! You’ve got this. Remember all the reasons why you are here. Are you ready to get to work?  Try Picmonic for free today and see why 600,000 (and counting) students worldwide trust their education and career with Picmonic, and why Harvard Business Review called it one of the leading visual learning tools for medical and nursing students.
