Want to get through nursing school without it taking over your life?

Get the proven roadmap that has helped thousands of students take control and thrive in nursing school without constantly struggling or feeling overwhelmed.

Isn't struggling in nursing school inevitable?

For some people, it absolutely is.

Most students believe that getting through nursing school means pulling all-nighters, cramming for exams and constantly feeling massive amounts of stress. 

But this isn’t actually true. In fact, adopting this mindset is the absolute best way to guarantee that you will struggle.

Because when you accept defeat before nursing school even starts, you give away all your power and any chance of having a different nursing school experience.

You don’t have to do nursing school this way. 

The truth is, students who thrive in nursing school, plan to thrive in nursing school. And students who expect that struggling is inevitable, prove themselves right every single time. 

But you want something different, and you believe it's possible. You're just not sure how.


Hi there!

I’m Maureen, but my students call me “Nurse Mo.” I’m a nurse, educator, podcastor and founder of Straight A Nursing. I’ve been a nurse for more than 10 years and have helped thousands of students thrive in nursing school. 

I created Straight A Nursing because I remember what it felt like to be excited about school but also a little bit scared. When I started my program, I knew I wanted to have a positive experience…after all, I’d worked so hard for this dream! No way was I going to let anxiety, stress and fear steal my joy!

And once I “cracked the code” on what it takes to thrive in nursing school, I never looked back. I refused to pull all-nighters (because I didn’t have to), I took time for a bit of self-care, and I graduated at the top of my class with a 4.0 GPA. 

Since then I’ve refined my systems, identified what truly sets nursing students up for success, and put it together for you in an easy-to-follow roadmap. 

So now that we’ve met, welcome to my world! You’re no longer going through nursing school alone đź’•

So, who is Bootcamp for anyway?
Bootcamp is FOR YOU if...
  • You’re starting nursing school soon (or coming back after a rough start) and believe it is possible to have a different nursing school experience.
  • You are driven to succeed and want to truly learn the material so you can be the best nurse you can be.
  • You love having some insider knowledge and want to walk into your first day already knowing what to expect.
  • You’re willing to roll up your sleeves and do some prep work before classes start, knowing it will pay off in the long run.
Bootcamp IS NOT for you if...
  • You expect it to make nursing school easier. Nothing will make nursing school easier, but Bootcamp does make you better equipped to rise to the challenge.
  • You’re not willing to do the work. If you’d rather completely unplug before classes start and show up on your first day completely unprepared, you do you!
  • You want to skate by and do the bare minimum to pass. 
  • You’d prefer buying into the myth that nursing school has to be horrible because it’s easier to blame outside factors than it is to take responsibility.

You've got two choices.

Choice 1:

You can choose to continue having a defeated mindset around nursing school and accept that it's going to be a nightmare no matter what. And since the overwhelm and stress are inevitable, why do any prep work? Just show up on day one and take it as it comes. 

Choice 2: 

You can embrace the belief that you can have a different nursing school experience and that your success is entirely within your control. You can choose to get excited about the fact that there are actionable, proven steps you can take that set you up to thrive in nursing school. And, you can choose to show up on your very first day having your systems in place and already knowing what to expect.
