Hi! So I just finished my final final of first semester in nursing school
, where I am also taking Anatomy and Physiology and a psych class, 13 credits total, and I'm wiped out. I was trying to give myself a pep talk, like only 3 more semesters and you will be done and life will be easier since you won't have to work part time while going to school and taking care of your family- just working and family! But then I thought, first year is supposed to be terrible as well! Which did you think was harder- nursing school or your first year on the job? I know there's still a ton to learn...

Why do you think school would be more difficult than the job? School is a taste, and by taste I mean a small, minute bite taken by an anorexic fearful of gaining weight, of a huge cake called nursing. It may seem that statement is tasteless, I now call it like I see it and I have no filter. Know why?
First year is tough, but you'll get through it. Then you'll gain the no filter that I have, and let things go. Small things like grades and test questions will be small compared to the bigger, realistic challenges of providing good nursing care. What you're doing right now is the hardest, but that first year is even harder. Know what? You'll be okay.
