What's inside Crucial Concepts Bootcamp?

Professional communication is the cornerstone of safe patient care. The best nurses are those who communicate with precision and confidence.

This module will teach you how to communicate decisively and effectively in all aspects of patient care. We'll begin with medical terminology and move on to more complex concepts such as sharing critical patient information and giving flawless end-of-shift report. 

Plus, I think you're really going to love the downloads I include in this module:

Handbook of medical abbreviations and terms
SBAR template for quick and focused communication
Multiple report sheets

It's one thing to learn from lecture or your books. It's quite another to put that knowledge into action. 

As someone who has precepted many students and new nurses, I've seen firsthand how overwhelming this "whole new way of thinking" can be. But once you learn how to actually think like a nurse, it becomes a part of who you are.

In this module, you'll learn the foundations of developing your clinical judgment and critical thinking skills.

• Developing clinical judgment
• The nursing process and how you can always use it to answer the question,  "What do I do now?"
• The Tanner model to help you learn from clinical experiences
• How to write (and decipher) a nursing diagnosis

Clinical (and simulation lab) are where the rubber meets the road. This is where you truly learn how to act like a nurse.

In this module, I'll share you with the insights I've developed over nine years at the bedside to help set you up for clinical success. We'll also dive into some basics such as interpreting vital signs and tackling care plans. Plus, the downloads in this section will make you feel like a pro right from the start: 

•  Vital signs cheat sheet
•  Step-by-step care plan guide
•  A clinical data collection form to help you zero in on the most important patient information
•  Clinical debrief form, which is designed to magnify your learning


Imagine walking into your dosage calculations exam with complete confidence! In this module, you'll learn how to use dimensional analysis to tackle every type of dosage calculations question and keep your patients safe.

But more than that, you'll learn HOW to approach dosage calculations and think critically through even the most complex problems. And because I believe in building your confidence every step of the way, we start with the basics and work our way up to the most complex and challenging calculations.

The extensive dosage calculations handbook includes:

• Unit conversions and common abbreviations
• Decimal usage and rounding rules
• The three questions to ask with every dosage calculations problem
• Guidance that slowly increases your independence and confidence

One of the biggest challenges students face in nursing school isn't so much the content itself, it's how much of it there is. Which is why studying smarter is absolutely key. 

In this module, you'll learn a tried-and-true study method that will help you study more efficiently and effectively. You'll also learn a quick way to systematically study disease conditions that takes the guesswork out of the question, "What should I focus on?"

You'll also learn:

• Strategies to conquer NCLEX-style exam questions
• A test-day game plan to reduce anxiety and boost your confidence
• How to make a study guide for the exam

As a nurse (and nursing student) you will draw heavily on the content you learned in anatomy and physiology. 

By reviewing some key elements before diving into nursing school, you'll be positioned to understand even the most complex concepts, rather than simply trying to memorize. When you memorize, you may learn that one thing. But when you understand concepts, you can apply what you know to countless other scenarios. It's how you amplify your learning and begin to develop clinical judgment.

Together we'll review: 

• Fluid compartments, fluid shifts and electrolytes 
• How the body maintains acid-base balance
• The factors that affect blood pressure
• The autonomic nervous system and RAAS


If there's one thing that can reduce your nursing school stress considerably, it's simply being organized.

In this module, you'll learn how to set up a system for managing your nursing school notes, paperwork, computer files and class binders. We even dive into how to take and organize notes using GoodNotes and Notability, two popular digital note taking apps.

You'll also learn how to conquer your busy schedule so you start each day with a clear plan and never miss a deadline. If you love planning and checking things off a list, this module is for you! You'll receive: 

• Step-by-step organizing checklist
• Weekly planning sheets
• List of supplies for clinical and the classroom 

When you enroll, you'll get:

7 detailed modules teaching you the key concepts that are crucial to your nursing school success.


Extensive module on dosage calculations so you can score 100% on this crucial exam.


Downloadable workbooks and resource sheets to supplement your learning.


Access to our private Facebook group


Weekly Office Hours to kickstart your semester via Zoom...no social media account required!

And if you can't make it live...no worries! Recordings will be uploaded into the course for easy retrieval. Sessions occur weekly for four weeks in September, January and May.

You'll be given immediate access to all Crucial Concepts Bootcamp modules so you can complete the course at your own pace and in your own way. You will also have continued access to the modules so you can refer back to them at any time.

How long will it take me to complete the course?

How long will it take me to complete the course?

The entire course includes seven modules, 21 videos and 15 downloadable PDFs and workbooks. If you were to sit down and go through it from start to finish, it would take approximately 12-15 hours. 

However, we both know cramming right before the test is not a great way to learn! So, we recommend giving yourself two to four weeks to go through the course at a comfortable pace.

Once nursing school starts it's "game-on!" For now, take your time and enjoy learning how to make the successful transition from pre-nursing to nursing student.

Still thinking about it?

You want to actually thrive in nursing school, not just survive.

I know what the perceptions of nursing school are. I had them myself. That it takes over your life, that you'll barely have time for anything else, and that you'll be lucky just to survive. Is that really how you want to spend the next two years? 

When you start nursing school ahead of the game, you tend to stay ahead of the game. For many students, nursing school is a constant struggle, and that's what Bootcamp strives to alleviate by getting you prepared before classes even start.


Christine says, "I couldn’t have survived my first semester without Bootcamp! I was so much more prepared going into classes than my peers because I knew what to expect right off the bat. Concepts that were unclear in class were almost always part of a CCB module and were explained so much better."

You should give Crucial Concepts Bootcamp a no-risk try if you're motivated by any of the following:

You want to feel the magic of having total confidence in unfamiliar territory.

For many students, nursing school is an entirely new experience...especially those with no healthcare background at all. I was one of those students and I can't imagine how great it would have felt to walk into clinical or my first day of class already knowing what to expect. 

You want to actually enjoy nursing school with less stress.

For many students, the process of becoming a nurse is one of the biggest transformations we will ever make. I don't know about you, but that's pretty darn exciting! If you want to actually enjoy this process and feel excited about becoming a nurse, Bootcamp can help, just like it did for Andrea:

Maureen (Nurse Mo)

MSN, RN, CCRN

"I knew I would like Bootcamp because of Nurse Mo’s teaching style, but I didn’t expect it to be perfectly tailored to where I am as a nursing student! Thank you for making my semester in between applications and actually starting school a little less nerve wracking! I’m happy to start school feeling excited and like I belong to the nursing fam already!"

Amy says, "Do not let this pass you by. This is why I am passing nursing school. Watching my colleagues struggle with things that seem so easy to me from Bootcamp is painful. The price makes you feel guilty after you realize what you take away from it. Just like I tell my colleagues struggling JUST DO IT! You will be so relieved come test time!!"

Amber says, "I just wanted to personally tell you THANK YOU. Thank you for being available, thank you for your help and support, thank you for the Bootcamp, just THANK YOU! I had to withdraw from Med Surg last semester, and I was so hurt and didn't know where to turn. I had NEVER failed anything so it was a hard pill. When I found out I was accepted to repeat the course this semester, I saw your story on Instagram talking about the Crucial Concepts Bootcamp. I thought, "Why not? I got this amazing helpful planner, Mo is so helpful, and I need some help!” So I bought the Bootcamp and came into this repeat semester READY. I ended up PASSING my testing portion of the course with a B! I have been with #TeamBootcamp since!"


You've failed or had to withdraw and don't want to give up on your dream.

It breaks my heart to hear from students who've had to withdraw from a course or who've failed and worry they may have to give up on their dream.

The first thing I have to say to this is you are not a failure. There are so many reasons that a student could face this situation and none of them have anything to do with you being a failure. So you can get that out of your head right now.

With Bootcamp students can experience a total "re-set" and resume their program with more confidence and the foundation skills they need to succeed. I just love this story of a student who came back from a tough semester to succeed: 

You don't want to feel like you're going through nursing school alone.

Whether it's online education or simply that you don't yet know anyone from your cohort, the thought of going through nursing school alone can be a little scary.

With Bootcamp, you have resources at your fingertips to help explain concepts you may be struggling with in class, and you get access to our private Facebook group for additional support from me and your peers.

Grace says, "This bootcamp reduced my pre-nursing school anxiety IMMENSELY. I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I was accepted into nursing school, and had no friends who had gone through it to ask questions of. Mo and the bootcamp acted as that 'friend' who had been through it all, and who was dedicated to supporting me and helping me prepare myself the best way possible. I entered nursing school feeling on top of things and ready to conquer classes, clinicals, exams, etc. Thank you so much!!!!"


I'm Nurse Mo and I cannot wait to be your study buddy...

I was that student in nursing school who let it completely take over my life. I was obsessed with getting a 4.0 because I knew graduate school was in my future and, to be honest, I tied up my self-image with my academic success.

To say I was stressed, burned out, and completely depleted is a huge understatement. By the time I graduated I wasn't enjoying school at all. Heck, I was barely enjoying life.

Since graduating with my BSN (and now my MSN), I've seen thousands of nursing students suffer and struggle through nursing school. Whether they're trying for a perfect GPA or simply to pass (which is still an enormous accomplishment), the end result is often the same. 

They're stressed, overwhelmed, unhappy and, in a lot of cases, afraid. 

Becoming a nurse is an amazing transformation. With a little preparedness and some foundation concepts you can start nursing school strong, set aside the fear, and embark on your journey with confidence and joy. I can't wait to see all the amazing things you do!
