    Most people answered your question and gave some good advice, whether it was what you wanted to hear or not. If you can't take a little criticism you will never even survive nursing school.

    OP, when I read your last couple posts, I couldn't help but laughed.
    If you mean to communicate by writing, you have to write well. It shows how much you really value others' opinions here, and how serious your intention is. If you don't care about writing fine, than people sure won't take you seriously. The replies you got are more serious and much more respectful than the respect you ever showed here.

    By the way, get your nerves treated before you get into any of nursing stuff. Nursing school and the real world of nursing are 18432 times more frustrating than this. lol. You don't want to kill yourself or others from madness.

    If you want to see someone get rude and judgmental, I could give it a whirl. Consider me being 'polite' by stopping here.

    OP...we have nothing else with which to assess what a person "is all about" on forums such as this other than their written words. That's it, no gestures, no expressions, no other little nuance to add flavor to a message. With such limitations, it becomes very easy to "come off the wrong way".
    Text-speak and other overly casual communication styles regarding what most consider serious issues leads a reader to question the writer's veracity, maturity, intelligence, etc.
    It's a natural human response to try to fill in the blanks...therefore try not to leave so many.

    What I will say is only god can judge me And after im done and when I become a nurse I will try my best to not be mean like you guys and btw this is not school I can type how I want and obviously I forgot to mention some things like my daughters college tuition and stuff but still no reason to come typing at me and putting me down YUCK I wonder how you treat your patients ....I have so much more to say but wont because this is not the place and im not going to let some strangers on the internet get me down Carry on
    I've read through many of the replies. People are honest....I fail to see how honesty is considered "mean." Since you aren't a nurse, you can't really say how you will practise or treat your patients. Come back and let us know your thoughts after you've been practising on your own for a year. I wish you well.

    OP, I think you'd do better sticking with bartending, rather then entering nursing school, considering your expectations.

    People did try to offer you sound advice, but you don't seem to want to accept it. You'd do well to consider the viewpoints offered here from actual nurses; some posts are really very well thought-out.

    Good luck.

    I don't think any one has been mean. I think everyone is trying to help you understand that while the hourly wage might sound tremendous....the actuality is that your dollar doesn't go that far. Depending on where you live....housing can swallow up a large portion of your paycheck.....especially if you want all the amenities. Your school loans will be due and they average about $800.00 a month.

    I am positive that many of the posters here are excellent nurses.....telling you honestly what to expect out of school doesn't make them less nurses to their patients. They have experience on their side and I think they were trying to help. Being a nurse will give you a reality shock that the job is not all it's cracked up to be.....the day to day grind is sobering.

    Nursing is a hard profession and you will never be paid what you are worth. It is physically, intellectually and emotionally draining. You will have immense responsibility and be the whipping post for most of the patients and families not to mention administration. I used to bar tend for extra cash.....at least I could refuse service to drunk loud obnoxious people and have them arrested for public intox....in nursing you can't.

    But you are right....I beleive your question has been answered....thread closed for staff review.
