7 Chic Back to School Planners for Nurse Practitioner Students

Forget about impending tests. Don’t worry about where you’ll complete your clinicals. Stop dreading essay writing. Breathe. Back to school is about more than anxiety and taking on more than you can handle. Yes, it’s about office supplies. There’s nothing better than starting the school year fresh with a desk graced with inky pens and perfectly pointy pencils. And, you totally know you bought a fresh box of crayons just for fun, even though they haven’t been on your supply list since, like, the third grade.

If you’re a nurse practitioner student this year, there’s one supply that you’ll rely on more than the rest – your planner. Maintaining your schedule in an agenda helps keep you organized and on track as you balance classes, assignments, and clinical hours. Not to mention, acquiring a crisp, blank, chic agenda is just enough to ignite some excitement about the coming school year. Here are our top picks for the 2016-2017 nurse practitioner class.
