    How was your first day of school? Was it everything you thought it would be? Did it drain all your energy or could you go on and on like the Energizer rabbit? My first day was unforgettable - happy, sad, angry ... let's just say it was a roller coaster day for me.

    Please share your experience.

    My first day back from break involved a cardiac arrhythmia/cardioversion sim with me on lead, three papers assigned, one quiz assigned, three books bought, two friends I hugged, and a cool long-necked bottle after the boys were in bed.

    So, about normal, I assume. 120 days left after that. Not that we are counting or anything.

    I don't care who reads this and I don't care if no one reads this, I just need to vent, I HATE NURSING SCHOOL and I HATE Binghamton University's nursing program, this was the biggest mistake of my life, I regret this program more than anything in my entire life and warn everyone not to go to Binghamton. I HATE IT. All I have learned going here is that I DONT want to be a nurse and that nursing is not what I want. I HATE THIS PROGRAM AND WANT TO DROP OUT SO BADLY, I am so miserable, I regret this program so much I can't even explain it. I just need to vent. Anyone thinking of applying don't do it unless you want to be a bed bather for the rural population. I am going crazy and absolutely insane I just feel like a crazy person and I don't know how I am getting through the rest of the program. I should have gone to medical school because nursing just SUCKS.

    I was only 17 yrs old then.I had so many mixed emotions on the very first day of school.I was very excited yet scared,happy yet felt helpless,tired and feeling drained from all the classes I have to go to but as the day progresses to evening,I felt amazingly relieved and proud of myself,I survived the first day of nursing school.It was a remarkable day for me,my parents and siblings...

    I just passed my boards 2 weeks ago, but it feels like yesterday I was sitting in my first lecture of nursing school. It was an exciting day, sitting with friends I had made when we attended orientation and making new friends. It was a long day of lecture, but now that it is over those almost 2 years went by so quickly. The friends I made in nursing school will be friends for the rest of my life, we laughed and cried and studied together. We went through personal losses and overcame obstacles together.

    I don't even remember and it wasn't even that long ago. LOL It was easygoing. Everything was easygoing until we hit MEDSURG/PHARM. We all heard how rough the courses were with the failure rates to prove it. First day of that semester, you could've heard a pin drop in class. The class was so quiet and attentive.

    I didn't get burned out until the last month. I was like, 'Gimme my genie lamp so I can get the hell outta here!'. Wasn't just me. Most in class were beginning to buckle under the strain.

    I start my bridge in a few days. I'm kind of scared. Everyone (LVN) seems to have difficulty with the RN program. The first day, I expect to be easygoing.

    Its early in the game, not too late to turn around now. Pick another career field. Remember if this is how you feel in your heart of hearts now, you already know its not for you. Best of luck to you.

    No one is making you go to nursing school! It is a personal choice! Go to med school then? Some people are just not cut out for nursing and nursing school is going to be a pain in the butt no matter what but if it is a good program it should prepare you well for the real world ; ) Out of the 60+ people that started in my program only about 20 of us graduated... One girl did drop out to go to medical school yet she was afraid to go into patient's rooms and would hide in the bathroom lol Best of luck to you!

    I was an EMT for 18 years. During my 15th year, I moved to another state. I was 54 then and decided to embark on a nursing career. The beginning started wrong. I paid for my basic materials, but was handed the wrong items, and was told I owed the school full payment. I told the director I had already paid for my materials, but she didn't believe me. Being a determined type of personality, I refused and was allowed into the program anyway because I was on a full scholarship.
    The entire training was both challenging and rewarding. I was picked on by classmates, humiliated by one in the clinical setting, and you have all experienced the rest of what it is like in nursing school. I graduated with honors and realized my dream of becoming a nurse. That was 17 years ago, and I still love it. In fact, I love it so much, my dream became the dream of being a missionary nurse. I am unable to do that due to my age and medical condition, but I contribute in other ways anyway through prayer and financial help for the programs. May countless people be helped through partners like me.
