Quote from BillieP
Today was my first week of nursing school at the Shelby campus. The teachers are both great lecturers so that's good. The thing I don't like is that so many (the majority) in my class are total snobs. There are several who already have degrees in other things, work at the hospital or in medical offices and think they are above the rest of us. Then there's another bunch that sits with their little clique of friends and gives you the evil eye if you dare try to strike up a friendly conversation with them. I am dredding the lab aspect of nursing classes now
I thought people in nursing school would be a little more friendly.........boy was I wrong
I'm really sorry to hear that. I'm at the Jefferson Campus and so far so good. Everyone seems really focused on the end product: Graduating Nursing School+Passing Boards+Getting a Job. It seems that we have a good mix of students who are first time college students, older students, students with degrees in other fields, repeat students, etc. As a student with a bs degree in another field, I'm actually a little envious of those students who are not in my same predicament. Its pretty frustrating spending time getting a degree that is either useless or doesn't have a good job outlook. I'm hoping the "snobbish" air you feel at Shelby is just 1st term jitters. Hopefully, the next few weeks everyone will get over them and begin to feel safe enough to open up a little more. They're probably just a little nervous and trying to figure it all out. Anywhooo.....here's to wishing you all the best of luck this term, and when you're having a tough day just remember keep your eyes on the prize!!
