Today, I’m going to tell you the one thing that you can do in nursing school to completely RUIN your chances of becoming a successful nurse…

My name is Nicole Whitworth, and I’m the founder of Your Nursing Tutor. I’m going to be telling you this today so that you can not do this thing…and become a successful nurse. I help nursing students get through nursing school confidently and calmly by teaching you how to study exactly the way that you need to in order to train your brain to think like a nurse so you don’t have to rely on your professors, you don’t have to rely on random YouTube videos, you don’t even have to rely on me as a tutor to spoon feed you the information, but you will know how to study efficiently and effectively on your own and do what you need to do to become a great nurse. 

So what’s the one thing that you can do to completely ruin your chances of becoming a successful nurse in the future? 

It’s nothing. Doing nothing. 

Let me explain by telling you a story about a student I had once who did exactly that. 

(Not going to tell you her name for obvious reasons…) 

I worked with her early on in my tutoring career, before I had actually started my official business, so I was still doing a lot of tutoring for free because I had started tutoring, if you don’t already know, when I was still in nursing school. My school had hired me during my first semester, because I was already kind of naturally tutoring my classmates, and they hired me as the official school tutor, paid me and everything! 

When I graduated, they didn’t have anybody to replace me, and a lot of the students I had been working with while I was still in school myself, they continued calling me and asking for help. A lot of them I worked with, and I just did it for free, because I firmly believe that nurses should help their young, NOT eat their young. So if you’re like that, if you feel the same way, you’re in the right place. 

But I was working with these students for free, and there was this one student who kept calling me and asking me if I could help her. She was having trouble with her classes. She was having trouble with the final exams. 

And so I would talk with her. And I would say, “Okay, this is what you need to do.” And I would give her an assignment on something to study so that she could come back and explain it to me what she had done, what she had reviewed. It wasn’t anything crazy. I’m not like some of your professors that you have that don’t give guidelines. I clearly told her what I needed. Part of it needed to be memorized, and part of it needed to be explained. I was very clear about what she needed to do. 

She called me back a week later, and asked for help. And I said, “Well, have you done this?” She said, “Oh, no, no, I haven’t had time to do that yet.” I said, “Okay, well, that’s the help. As soon as you do that, then I will help you some more. And we’ll go over that.”

I did not hear from her for months. Months. And I knew exactly why. It was because she was doing that ONE thing that is going to prevent you from becoming a successful nurse: and that is nothing. 

She did not do the simple assignment I gave her to do. 

And months later, she called me and she said, “Hey, I’ve been really stressed out. I’ve had a lot going on, I’m ready to do do the work. Can you help me?” And I said, “Yes, of course I can. You need to do this assignment. And I gave her the same thing.” And she said, okay, and then I didn’t hear from her again for months longer. I had told her, “The ball’s in your court, call me when you’re ready.”

(You can hear my kids in the background right now. I’ve got six of them.) 

Anyway, I told her to, “Call me when you’ve got it done.” And I didn’t hear from her for months. 

Finally, she does call me and she says again, “Hey, it’s been crazy. I need some help. Can you help me? I said, “Have you done this assignment?” She says, “Oh, no, no, I haven’t had time to do that.” 

I said, “Look, I’m busy. I would be happy to help you.” And by this time, I had started Your Nursing Tutor already, and I said, “but now I need to charge you. So do this assignment. And when you finish it, you can book a tutoring session with me.” And at that time I charged $75 per hour! 

Luckily, with the VIP tutoring membership that I offer, now I do NOT have to charge that much, and you can still get the same support and resources that I used to offer my private tutoring students. But now you also get a great community of supportive and uplifting nursing students to go along with it. 

I never heard from that student again, though. She wasn’t willing to do the work. She wasn’t willing to pay the money. And last I heard from her, she was still sitting in the same dead end job. She had not ever reached her dream of becoming a nurse, because the only thing she was willing to change was nothing. 

She wanted to me to snap my fingers and fix whatever was going on, but I can’t. 

In order to think like a nurse, you need to train and get better at it. It’s a skill just like any other skill. Like driving a car, like riding a bike. It can be done IF you’re following good advice and following a good study system that is automatically training you to do that. 

So don’t be like that girl. Don’t do nothing. 

Do something

Even if it’s the wrong thing, you will find out that it’s the wrong thing. And then once you find out it’s the wrong thing, you can try something else! 

But if you want to skip all the wrong things, and just jump straight to what you can feel confident is the right thing based on over 12 years of tutoring nursing students, then I would highly recommend you check out the information on the VIP tutoring membership because I can guide you through the path that WILL train your brain to think like a nurse, IF you’re willing to do something
