With just a few weeks left for getaway vacations and spontaneous road trips, students nationwide have started to focus on an annual fall transition: the busy back-to-school season. Exams, long nights of studying and countless cups of coffee will become familiar once again, striking a balance with club meetings, sporting events and dining hall meals.
As students filter back into dorm rooms and college apartments, Kaplan Nursing, a leading educational resource for nursing students, has decided to add a little fun to the back-to-school transition. How, you may ask?
By launching a “Start Off On The Right Foot” giveaway for nurses! Each week from now until November 10, 2014, Kaplan will select two lucky winners to receive an “Essential Back-to-School Kit.” The prize pack includes a handful of nursing must-haves, from a book of medical terms, to a 12-ounce bag of coffee, to (you guessed it!) a free pair of Dansko shoes.
In the spirit of back-to-school season, and in honor of Kaplan’s giveaway, we connected with two of our nurse blogger friends to share the most valuable lessons their professors ever taught them. Check out their responses below—and be sure to enter Kaplan’s giveaway by visiting Kaplan.com! All entries must be submitted by October 31.
