I was wondering what the first semester of nursing school
is like. I know that it varies from school to school but overall what do you learn/do? In clinicals what are you learning? How to take a temp, blood pressure, give a bath, what else? I am just curious to what I should be looking forward to. I ask because some people make it seem so hard and from what I have been told it is a lot of CNA work(I am not diising the CNA's) and CNA's get certified in 6 weeks so a whole semester of it shouldn't be to hard- or did somebody lie to me?

No one is pulling your leg. Nursing school is tough from start to finish. Studying for tests with poorly written questions and four correct answers to choose from coincides with deadlines for completed care plans and don't forget those papers in APA format so enjoy your summer.[/QUOTE]
I can second that 'Whoa!' Did you work full time while you went to schoool?? That was my PLAN but, after reading some posts here, that doesn't really seem all that plausible...
