Ok, if you are looking for positivity, close this thread quick!
Reasons why *I* feel nursing school can SOMETIMES be a drag:
1) Weight gain/loss that is unwelcome
2) Breaking out like you're going through puberty again
3) Lack of sleep (6 hours sounds good)
4) 200 hours of studying and only 2 days to complete it
5) You are inclined to feel clueless and severely inexperienced
6) Crappy Administration and/or Nursing Staff
8) Classroom Politics & B.S. "Cliques"
12) Watching those who commit #7-11 succeed equally as well as you do. WHAT A KICKER!
Has anyone been in a nursing program that they hated so much they would given anything to transfer
on to another one? Just a random question.
I'm in my mid-20s and I cannot help but to notice how terrible the nursing school environment is. I have been in college before and it just doesn't compare to nursing school. I have never dealt with so many backstabbing, gossiping, cheating, ungrateful, catty people in my LIFE. And much to your surprise, they are NOT all women! I'm sick of my college. We pay over $23k per year and the administration treats us like dirt. There is NO loyalty when it comes to us and we are blatantly lied to almost on a daily basis...and even though I get along with my class as a whole, I would say it's more that I "tolerate" them because I'm slightly easygoing. I have never met so many two-faced, shameless, jealous, shady people in my LIFE before. It creeped up out of NO WHERE!
I'm sick of my nursing program. Sick of the people who are jealous of those who make good grades..and SICK of those same people who feel they have a right to copy off their papers or pressure them into "sharing". I go to college with , generally, a bunch of flippin' idiots. That felt better. Thanks for letting me vent. I'm just shaking my head thinking that I have to go here for another 1.5 years potentially. I'm doing everything I can to transfer, but I'm not sure how easy that will be. I'm finished with my LPN portion of my program this summer.
I just had to get this off my chest. You do not have to agree with me lol. I have already started to tell my classmates some of this. If they are gonna be hateful, they will be hateful knowing the truth from me! I don't have a problem either. Done a lot of that "blunt" talk this week. lol
