I didn't like how there were so many cliques and people talked about each other and such. I hated the drama, negativity and am happy I'm away from it. Anyone else feel this way?
And I hate to burst your bubble but all that drama and negativity will follow you to real life nursing too! When I worked in the hospital, the gossip was WORSE than high school.

There are a few girls tho that are really snobby. and seem to think they're better than everyone else. But it's a small group, and I just stay away from them. There are some people that I'm closer to, we hang out outside of school, study and work together etc, but for the most part everyone at my program is alright. So glad I dont have to deal wtih extra drama.

There are a handful of people I will stay in touch with after school, but not all of them(frankly I don't like all the people in my class, and guess what...that's OK, b/c you will never like everyone )
- 0Jun 3, '12 by SonOfStBenedictthere aren't cliques per say but there are subgroups i.e. the guys, the smokers, younger students, students with kids, your clinical group, commuters from louisiana & those of us who took previous courses together. however these overlap so everyone generally ends up talking to one another and being cordial, granted there are 1 or 2 that majority of the class avoids or just tolerates, i dont see it as cliquey as a whole. but with that being said, mild drama will arise from time to time but that's just the norm when you get a group of people from different cohorts, cultures ect. together. for the most part we see it as we're all at in the same race and we need to help each other to the finish line, if need be, so not at least enjoy each other getting there.
