to all readers:
i am posting here with no intention of returning to this board to read the responses! but i am going to use this as a venue to sound off! i am writing from an emotional state so please excuse any errors in advance.
my wife took her nclex today! and i am so proud of her she has worked hard for this day and i pray to the lord she passes! but this has come and a great price to my family. over the last two years of this program (and i use the term loosely, it would seem more like a cloister than a progam to me) my wife has gone from a caring loving, independent, and kind person to a brutal, self absorbed, and mal adjusted "nursing candidate". she seems more aggresive than i was coming out of basic years ago. i have tried every form of encouragement i know. i have taken on the roles of primary care for our young son, i have worked extra hours so she did not have to work, given up my graduate scholarship, and tended to our small business with no help or cooperation.
i am frequently bombarded with " i am to stressed today!" and her constant grade grubbing and borderline psychotic rages over "the nclex,nclex,nclex!!!!!"
she has frequently ignored my son and neglected her personal well being all for the sake of this d_ _ n career!
i wish she had never met that nurse recruiter at our local hospital! she is a brillant woman with 93 hours of a chemistry bs and i am sadden by her career choice. at first i was beaming with pride that my wife wanted to help ppl and provide us with stability of insurance and benefits while our family business grows! but now i just feel lost! (and a little resentful too!) i love my wife i will never leave her but when she storms out of the house cursing and yelling becuase she only finished "75 questions! " and rebukes my attempts to comfort her i can only say i wish she had never set foot in the nursing program! i will not bother to return to this site my wife constantly surfs, becuase frankly i appreciate anyone with a kind thought or a paryer and could give a rats whisker about those who will inevitably fault me for being some jerk husband!
