Going into nursing school I knew it was going to be hard, but i still got a rude awakening. I started my first semester, and I'm not saying i wasn't prepared for the work because I was. I am just saying that I literally have no time to do anything but sleep, work, and study. One thing that really bothers me is the fact that in order to pass the classes we have to average a 75% on the quizzes and exams. This brings my test anxiety and stress level to a maximum. Nursing students should get weekly complimentary stress relief massages.
I am so excited to be in the program and on my way to my career as a nurse. However, the years to follow are going to be filled with tons of school and no fun.
