Wondering if I should continue....

  1. I am so fed up with school right now...I am so frustrated!
    I am sick of the heavy work load...and the pathetically HIGH percentage we have to attain just to make a C.
    I also found out I have to retake a class.

    Wondering if I should hang tough or swithc majors...
    (since January...school has been so negative...i really cant see a positive to continue with the program)

    Don't give up! If you want to be a nurse, do whatever necessary. You will be so happy you did when you get your pin. It will all be worth it, I promise. Just hang in there!

    Nursing School is HARD, and gives you alot of extra STRESS that you dont need in your life. Are you in your first year of nursing school? It just takes alittle bit of time to adjust to the workload of the courses. If nursing is what you have always wanted to do then do not let anything break you down. Keep Positive, and take every negative as a learning experience, build on it and move forward. Afterall NURSING is a LIFELONG LEARNING EXPERIENCE Hang in THERE!

    I don't think there's a single person who could have said it any better.

    Oh I feel your pain.............I'm on my way to bed. been studying all evening for an up coming exam.........But please,please,please....dont give up.......Just remember back to when you got your letter..........that they accepted you in the nursing program.......Remember how good that felt????.........I am sleepy all the time,and have no time for family,and friends.....but we will one day..........and someone else will be speaking these same words......and you will be able to boost them up...because you where once in their shoes............so smile and keep your chin up...there is light at the end of the tunnel.........and the REWARDS WILL BE WONDERFUL.

    I feel you! I have days when I have to sit back and get perspective on it all.. Ask myself," How badly do you want this?" So far through frustration and tears it's still, "Really badly!" Good thoughts your way whatever you decide!
