Don't nursing school rumors drive you crazy...

  1. I have to vent about this. It's a big pet peeve of mine. When other student start gossiping about how an instructor tests or how many failed the rotation before?

    Personally, when they start to this, I want to cover my ears and scream because all my confidence I built up during my studying does out the window and the test anxiety comes on strong. :angryfire

    I can only think of two ways to resolve this a) Stay AWAY from the other students closer to test time or b) bring headphones or earplugs with me until the teacher walks in.

    Any insight? Suggestions? Words of experience?

    I would be thankful, I think I get more anxious about the gossip and trying to guessimate how I will do by how the previous group did than about the test material itself!

    Thanks

    My only suggestion is to not let it bother you. Ignore it and tune it out. Go in, do your work and go home with a peaceful mind.

    If you let it get to you then in becomes a problem when it interferes with your education.

    It's rough but it's my only advice.

    Good luck,

    I hate that too pendragon1980. I stay away from them all before a test also. I sit outside until I see my instructor enter the room and start passing out the test. Otherwise I lose my confidence and get all confused....
