I've always been socially awkward and a bit unusual..strange, really. My mom used to tell me that in nursing school
people find their best friends and become very tight knit. This hasn't happened for me. I'm now going into my second month and it seems like everyone has found their group, and I'm just kinda quiet and when I'm not, I'm spoken over or am not acknowledged.
I found out today that I'm the only person who scored a 90 or above on our first theory exam, and feel like that has placed me even further into not being liked although I was very humble about the grade I received. I realize I don't need a social group to finish nursing school, but it would take away the feeling of "outsider".. I've never had many friends, maybe 1-2 in regular school..sometimes none..but I had high hopes that this would change.
Is there anything that can make this journey easier other than having that social group? Is there a moment where things just suddenly change?

Congrats on the good grade! Even though it may feel lonely sometimes, sometimes its good to do your own thing and stay out of drama. Our cohort has only been in class a few weeks and already people are arguing over grades and trying to get answers from others for the online quizzes.

Same here... Imagine being 9 months in nursing school and having no friends to hang out with! Guess you can't force it. Seems like the one's with friends don't talk about things I like ( talks poorly of others). That may be the difference
