Though I love love love my Erin Condren Life Planner, I couldn’t help myself and had to design something specifically designed for nursing students. I hope to soon have these available as printable PDF for you to use in a disc-bound system such as ARC or any other half-size planner system. So, I thought I’d put up a sneak peak and see what ya’ll think. It’s still a work-in-progress, but I am really liking how colorful and functional it is so far.

This first pic is the right side of the weekly spread. You fill in the upper right pink box with the month, then fill in the circles with the dates. I considered doing a dated version, and may still do that…pondering.

This next shot is of the left side of the weekly spread. Here’s where you keep your lists of “to-do” items for that week, separated by home and school. In addition, there’s a while list just for assignments due…there are lots of these in nursing school! In the middle you see a bunch of colored boxes…the blue boxes are for tracking water, the green are for your fruits/veggies, and orange is for your daily exercise/meditation/prayer/social time…whatever keeps you grounded in your spirit.

And this last one shows the Project Pages…you will do a TON of group projects in nursing school…a ton! This is a handy place to plan out your project, assign tasks and sketch out ideas. Fun!

I am also toying with the idea of doing a dated version with little tid-bits throughout that related to nursing school stuff…you can see what I mean here with this example of a full-size dated version. Sorry if it’s tiny, maybe if you click on it it gets bigger?

So, let me know what you think! I am contemplating a full-size version as well, along with doing dated versions starting with August (which is coming up fast!). Ideas? Thoughts?

Be safe out there!
