I am in one of the top nursing schools
in the country, and, coming from the interesting pre-reqs like chemistry and A&P, to the nursing model, which, I am sorry to say, is devoid of any real medical knowledge.....is heartbreakingly frustrating.
Pharmacology is not about pharmacology...its about a few specific drugs and memorizing things about those few specific drugs.
Pathophysiology is barely about physiology at all, its about how to nurse someone with a pathology more than anything.
My issue, is, I am 32 and afraid of getting back out there to get pre reqs for PA school or med school. What if I run out of public loan funding halfway through...I'm stuck. (I cant get private loans)
How do I pay for my life while I go back to school for a year for pre reqs?
All of this momentum and fear has kept me in a nursing school
I hate more and more.
And no, it is not hard at all. I get straight A's. And god I wish I was bragging, but it just feels sad.
Its a rant. I am frustrated.
