I agree with first poster. The first thing I love is the people. Of course you will have some people you don't like, but when it comes down to it, you are all going through the same thing. In my class we lift one another up and encourage one another when we are feeling down. We tutor people who need it and spend time with them. They become your family. This one girl in my class, graduated from the same college I previously had but a different year. We met on the first day and ever since we spend almost every single day together after school whether we are hanging out and studying, baking/cooking, shopping, or just texting one another. I work in a Pharmacy and yesterday she came in to drop off a prescription and they all thought she was my roomie because we are always together. I spend more time with her than I do my husband. These people become your family. Use them as a resource, it really helps.
The second thing I love is being knowledgeable. I post a "nursing fact of the day" on facebook every day and everyone loves them. (Nothing that violates HIPPA) just a quick fact like how many cells we shed in an hour, or something interesting about the chapter we are on that day. Also I tell my parents and husband everything I learn. When we did the old age packet for growth and development, I related everything to my Grandpa and when I told my Mom she was like "Wow! That all makes sense with him and the things that he does!" So those are my two reasons I love school.
