I am currently in a BSN program. It is small (about 80 students junior/senior 95% women). I like school, but I can't wait to have this program behind me!! I was just wondering if nurses are as competitive and catty as they are when in school? Do nurses compete with each other in the hospital like they do in my school? Half of the students in my program have such negative, nasty attitudes. I get straight A's and I speak up in class so I can learn and do well, not to compete. In my program everyone is always comparing grades. Is it that same way as a nurse? Just wondering cause it's kinda exhausting and so immature!! Also, I thought nursing is teamwork?!
