I'm looking for solid advice on a simple topic. I'm in my 3rd year of nursing school, and all my teacher are total witches. The work load is unbearable as usual, but this semester its so much worse because all of them are very apathetic and downright vicious whenever they get the chance to be. I'm a male and try to be a good student, but the semester just started and i'm so stressed. The feeling seems mutual among my classmates. My teachers this semester are all 50+ years old and have not been on the front line working as a nurse in many years. I don't know what to do because their lectures are poor, they are dishing out a truck load full of extra projects without any clear directions how to get them done. I now realize why so many people drop out of nursing school. I really want to finish this semester, but none of these instructors are willing to help outside of class. Approaching them with questions is asking to get your head bit off! I honestly don't know why people like this continue to be teachers. For all the people out there trying to get into nursing school, all I can say is find any other option if at all possible. I want to be a nurse, but nursing school will test your resolve by applying the wrenches until your bones crack!
