    I am in an 12 mo LPN program!, I am stressed as hell, have so much homework, i just want to cy!!!!!! Failed one test (A&P) and have some rumor spreading-backstabbing-insecure-gossping girls in my class, not all just 2 of them.

    How do you handle the stress of nursing school, and how do you deal with gossiping or jelous people? I can hear them talking about me, always asking what my grades are? Sometimes i dont hear what they say ...but i just know they are talking about me...sometimes they write stuff on little piece of papers so you cant hear them.... Who has been through this?? How do you deal with the stress? And have any of you guys ever failed a test in LPn school?


    Thank you,

    Much love!!

    to the wonderful world of nursing school! Just try to ignore all that stuff and get on with it. Worry about what you are doing and NOT what they are doing. I know it sounds hard but try your best. Good luck.

    sounds more like high school. i guess its bound to follow in a career of mostly women. but i gotta say it got worse now that im out of school.
    so you gotta learn to ignore. when women talk about other women for no reason, its usually jealousy. so smile and wave!!

    Yes,I have failed a test in LPN school.That was due to the test material being from a different book than the one we had.And most of the class failed it as well,but that is neither here nor there.

    I made it through an extremely gossipy,clique filled nursing program where even one of the instructors bashed a students personal life behind her back,by keeping my head down and doing my work.I also had two close friends that I trusted. If asked what my grades were I would jusk give vague answers,like 'ok.'

    I would also avoid places where the gossipers would take their breaks.

    i never thought of this happening at school, i guess its cuz im so over highschool drama, but that doesnt mean everyone else is! There is a wide spectrum of ages enrolled that i met at orientation...and they all seemed nice. But there was about 10nstudents missing and I hope none of them are "MEAN GIRLS" because I am really looking forward to this experience! Thanks for bring up something I never would have thought of so I can prepare myself and figure out how to deal with the stress just incase there are some either jealous or someone that is lacking something and want to make themselve feel better.
    If it was happening to me and I was being singled out, I would step back and take a look at what it may be that they are talkingabout. If it is negative or something you can see how it would come across wrongly to someone- maybe they are doing you a favor-not in a nice way but try realizing that behavior and work on reacting differently. If thats not the case, they must be lacking something that they want or like that you probably have. If its grades, ask if they want to get together to have a study group or ask if they could help you with something after class....that way you show them you arent perfect and you study very hard to get where you are and you need help soemtimes too!....KILL THEM WITH KINDNESS!!!!

    I haven't started LPN classes, but I've had pre-reqs with some of the girls I"ll be in nursing with. So far, everyone seems supportive, I'm hoping it stays that way, but I know there are going to be some bad apples. All you can do is ignore them. Seriously, if they are going to that immature, I would not want them to be my nurse. It's not high school anymore, and obviously they aren't ready to be in college with their attitudes. Don't let them bother you. It's their loss in the end.

    Ignoring them is always a good idea. Harder than it seems in reality though...

    ignore them or put them in there place is always my philosophy.

    seriously though, there will always be petty people and "high school" mentality everywhere you go. your only there to further your career. thats it. BS aside its all about you/.

    first thing you need to do is take a big deep breath. now, relax. you do sound a lil paranoid. in school you will see so many changes in everyone including your self. these people do not deserve the time of day you are giving them by stressing about them. look at them smile and turn away. as soon as they see they are not "getting to you" sadly like any bully-type, they will go to the next person in line. sadly as i am about to graduate i have seen these types and some of failed, dropped out, and worst of all, the worst of them have slipped through the cracks and made it to the end. they will get "weeded out" keep your dignity with them, they are not worth you reacting to their misconceptions. they are just one your lifes lil speedbumps, get over it and on with your education. put your energy into the fact that you can be confident. when you are confident, others will respect you. hold your head up and have fun. don't forget to laugh when your having a bad day, trust me, it helps. good luck.
    ps remember that all fear is just false evidence appearing real.
