I never gave a thought to how hard being a nurse is. Like most, I think "a nurse is a nurse who helps people". But now that I've started nursing school
, MAN it is hard! I've never been a quitter but I feel like this is not for me sometimes. I'm doubting my intelligence. In undergrad my grades were mostly B's in science and I got by with a 3.4. I've never been a sit down and study all day kind of girl. But now that's all that I do! Even then I'm barely passing tests with B's. I'm in an accelerated program of 15 months, but I know those who have done theirs in 1 year! I love the hospital and learning new things, but I do have a hard time retaining infos and concepts. Sometimes I think to myself while studying that I am not cut out for this. Has anyone else felt this? How did you cope?
