I am starting my first nursing class in 2 weeks. Just spent almost $600 for the privilege of carrying three enormous textbooks on my back and barreling through them in 8 weeks. As I'm checking out, the cashier reminds me that our nursing student "kit" isn't ready yet so I'll have to come back and buy that too.
What in the world could possibly be left for us to buy??? I already have the stethoscope, BP cuff, bandage scissors, penlight, black pens, notepad, uniforms, and everything else we were told to buy.
Learning is expensive. Necessary, yes, exciting, hell to the yes, but very, very expensive. Just had to throw that out there.
