Anyone out there get real tired about the constant drama, anxiety, and non stop worrying exerted by your female classmates? To me, it seems like the majority of them have nothing to talk about other than nursing school, tests,... Read More

    Hmmmmmmmmm just browsing the age group. So informative . Good Luck Gentlemen....you are going to need it.
    What are you implying?

    I have my suspicions, but this sort of clever "frank subtlety" is exactly the kind of drama that bugs me.

    yes i am tired of the drama!!!! many of the ladies in my class seem to, or tend to:

    1. rehash things that are resolved (we call that kicking a dead horse in the arse)
    2. get all shook up over a single grade
    3. call out the instructor on student-to-instructor(1-on1) issue in front of the class
    4. continually complain

    don't get me wrong i love the women in my class; i truly do. to be fair, our class has had some crazy stuff happen to us, like no instructor for patho, the school over-charged us $2000 and wouldn't give it back for 4 months, an instructor passed away half way through the semester without posting any grades, etc. it has been a rocky road for us; however, it is time to put all of that past us and move on!!! i am considered a leader at school, but when all that starts up and the powers-that-be are addressing the class, i have to leave. i cannot or will not cosign that kind of stuff any longer. the more i listen to it the more i get sucked in by it and start thinking in those terms.

    i guess the main point for me is that i (and more likely 98% of the population) thrive on positive energy. when all the air gets sucked out of the room from the complaining, etc it not only effects me, it effects everyone. people do not realize how the negative energy disables them in every area of their life.

    i do need to comment on the age issue that was brought up; how old is the poster that made the comment? perhaps you approached the issue sideways and ought to clarify what you are thinking.

    so my brothers i want to just let you in on a little secret about the fairer sex:

    they just can't help it; after all they are just a bunch of icky girls! :d

    If you're doing so well in your classes then why are you concerning yourself with the fact that other students are worried and studying and/or talking about school all the time. I'm not trying to be mean but I don't get how exactly their worrying about wanting to do well really affects you at all. Not everyone can breeze through nursing school like you've claimed to do and there shouldn't be anything wrong with that. If you guys are so good at it, then fine, be good at it, but I don't really get how it has anything to do with how the other students in the class should act. However by the way you've mentioned how you don't really want to be a nurse Humpty Dumpty, that could be one of the key differences and anyway, isn't the way that they worry and stress and constantly talk about nursing school kind of similar to the way you worry and get frustrated over how much they do it?
    First of all, you are correct. I do not like nursing AT ALL... This is a means to an end, nothing more, either it be NP or CRNA school. It just angers me that these people feel it necessary to put their anxiety and worry on other people, that is all. For the most part I ignore it, but jeez, after a year of ignoring it, I felt the need to come on here and vent. The super type A personalities of most of my fellow classmates just irritates me. They think nursing is this high and mighty profession, but you know? Its just a job, get over yourselves, theres much more difficult things out there.

    It may be a means to an end for you and that is perfectly OK. However, I do not think it is just a job. It is much more than that.

    I believe that this thread has been hijacked by a us vs them sentiment or the verse in the old show tune 'I can do anything better than you'. That isn't what the thread is about. In this instance it is about our reaction to our female counterpart's reactions to stress or perhaps (in some cases) life itself.

    This is the Male Nursing Student Thread where manly men in nursing school discuss manly things! Lurkers beware; you might not hear what you want to hear.......

    Female here, and I agree with the OP. It was hard but no worse than any other course. Mostly I hated the APA formatting.

    There are many females at my nursing school that hate the other females for ******** and moaning about everything. I am getting really, really sick of the constant complaining about EVERYTHING. And so I now make it known when someone starts to ***** about something.

    TRUE - another woman here and I HATE the drama! So I avoid it like the plague I got into nursing school by myself, for myself, so I don't mind going through nursing school that way...I'm friendly and not a snob...but I don't require that my classmates like me...just respect me...and please keep the theatrics and whining to a low roar

    I'm sure if you took another look, you'd find that it's not everyone and it's not "constant" and "nonstop". There has to be a few functioning people in the class other than you.

    But yeah, the worrywarts and drama queens are irritating.

    But for some people it might not be "just a job". It might be their only way out of an abusive relationship, poverty, domineering parents, any number of things besides "just a job" or a means to an end.

    Isn't that the point of most jobs?

    I think the OP meant that nursing isnt some divine calling passed down from the heavens, and which im inclined to agree with. I think nursing is certainly a respectable profession and a vital part of a functioning society, but its still a cog in a machine. There is nothing inherently sacred or transcendental about it. Any meaning people find in it is purely the constructs of their minds. But I feel the same way about anything, so if it lets them get through the day, I dont particularly care. That is until they get all emotional and sanctimonious...
