5 Fundamentals for Highly Effective Nurse Practitioner Students

1. Examine Your Study Habits

What you did in undergrad isn’t going to cut it. Choose a dedicated study space, and plan to study for three to five hours daily. And, find your people. If a study group is right for you, find them early.

2. Study Smarter, Not Harder

Use your course syllabus to create a study routine:

  • Step 1: Read the material
  • Step 2: Watch the corresponding Picmonic(s) covering the topic(s)
  • Step 3: Take the quiz at the end of the Picmonic
  • Step 4: Attend the lecture
  • Step 5: Continue to cover healthcare topics with regular daily spaced repetition quizzes

3. It’s Never Too Early to Start Thinking About Your Certification Exam

The Examination Content Blueprint is on the exam certification website. Using this blueprint, determine what topics to focus on (typically the ones weighted more heavily on the test). Dedicate more time to studying high-yield content.

4. Honor Your Role as a Student: Ask Questions

You can’t learn if you don’t ask. Don’t be afraid to reach out if you need help or don’t understand a concept. Instructors and professors have office hours, take advantage of these.

5. Take Care of You

Squash all the drama in your life NOW. Classes and coursework are only going to get busier, you ain’t got time for all that drama. And, practice self-care.
