O.k. I am only a first semester student, but I was under the impression from other students that nursing school
was going to be insanely difficult. (I am in an accelerated BSN program by the way)
But I haven't found it to be that "difficult". There is a TON of work and information thrown at us, but I have excellent time management skills and read everything before we are lectured and read over my notes after class. But this isn't nearly as difficult as Anatomy & Physiology or Microbiology. And a lot of the clinical tasks are simply common sense tasks with an added bit of nursing/medical knowledge.
Am I the only one that feels this way? I am actually a little disappointed that it isn't any harder, because if it were harder I would probably actually study it a bit more. I am hoping it gets a tad more difficult.
And the most dreaded class (patho/pharm) is actually incredibly enjoyable for me, thus I don't need to study it that much because I am intrigued by it. Furthermore, its basically anatomy & physiology with a little twist thrown in.
Anyone feel the same way as me?? I know this isn't because I am some insane genius, because I am far from that!

I am afraid to say that despite the fact that I had a B.S. in English before I started A&P I and II, I found them to be the most difficult classes I had ever taken in my life (besides statistics of course...can I get an amen...lol). Then I started nursing school, and found that every single class in my B.S. and A&P I and II were a total joke in comparison. First semester was easy, but after that...fuggettaboutit!!! Just my experience, I know others found nursing school to be easy (not in my school though).
