I'm tired.

  1. 2
    This semester is wearing me down! I couldn't wait to start nursing school, especially couldn't wait to start the real clinicals- let alone the mother/baby and NICU ones...but I'm tired. Love nursing but I'm tired of school. Heaven help me I have a year left! I've lost some spark for sure. Wondering if maybe a good holiday break will help bring it back...hope so. I'm just so...tired. Lol Anyone else? Only two more clinical days here, plus a couple weeks of classes left. Almost there!

    Yep, exhausted. In the hospital four days a week, in THREE different hospitals today. This is me tonight.

    But nursing school isn't forever - just keep telling yourself that. I plan a little treat at the end of each semester to help sweeten the fact that I'm that much closer to done!

    Add me to the tired list! Nursing is taking over my entire life. I'm working 3 12s in the hospital, in clinicals one dat a week, in school 2 days a week, studying the rest of the time, and I spend almost ALL my time with people in health care. I'm so over it. Tired. Tired of studying and all the rest of it. I'm just dragging myself through (and being dragged by all of my friends.)

    I feel ya, sista! I have 4 weeks, 5 exams (2 of which are very large cumulative finals) 1 case study and 6 clinical days left. I cannot wait until winter break. This semester (2nd) is killing me!

    I am right there with ya. I graduate in 5 weeks and every day is just dragging by. I just did 3 twelve-hour practicum shifts in a row and my brain is toast. The breaks have helped. This past summer was especially relaxing - all I did was hang out with my kids by the pool every day. I miss those days. Now I'm just taking it one day at a time. The days are slowly turning into weeks, and the weeks are turning into months. I live to cross another day off of the calendar.

    welcome to nursing school, LOL

    for what it's worth, I got less tired when I started taking better care of myself. A solid nights sleep (when I could), exercise, healthy foods. It made a world of difference in my school and other life.

    I'm older than most of you, so I had to share. When you say "I'm tired", this is what I think of.

    Two more clinical days and about three weeks of classes, exams and sim labs left. Yup. I'm tired. Next semester will be my third semester out of five. These days, I leave clinical and want to go home, take a shower, get in bed and stay there for a few days. Alas, when I do get into bed, I'm awake all night...thinking.

    This is my 1st semester and I'm over it, haha. But I definitely think the winter break will help me recuperate. When I feel uninspired, I just watch inspirational nursing videos. This is a good one.
