I start nursing school next Tuesday, January 21st, and I am super excited. I just quit my job as an accountant and will be going to school full time for the next two years to get a BSN.
I have read many posts on this website about how difficult nursing school is and how many have cried their way through or didn't have a life. I don't doubt that nursing school is difficult and my hat goes off to all who have succeeded in nursing. But I can't help but wonder what makes it so difficult.
So for all of us who have yet to embark on this journey, my question is why is nursing school so difficult? Is it the material itself? Is it the amount of material? What is it that makes people cry?
