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
- 0May 6, '09 by zionici cud agree with the negative energy even though i'm a female and yes it does sickens me to the guts, but do i condemn them for it? NO, because most times, i realise, when i hear whinning and complaints it's not because the girls think it's so hard, it's simply because the quiz or exam was so stupid but they never imagined it would be that stupid and they ended up not studying the stupid stuff.
i would never say i don't study, but i have realised that the times i study really hard i stress my self over nothing, because most of these exams are based on very simple things that sometimes do not require that indepth studying, but before i realized that i read every single thing in the book and worried and cried (in my corner now) then find out that it wasn't about the studying so hard, it was simply studying smart and listening to your inner guidance.

It's not just the drama but the CONSTANT chatter, typically more gossip and personal chit-chat than substance. It'd be different if they performed academically at a rate commensurate with their numbers. My observation is that male students (perhaps because of their continued minority status) out-perform and intensify the professional atmosphere in the class room. Having completed advanced degrees in other fields of science I have found it amazing that instructors must use flicker lights and find tactful ways to stop the "girl-talk" which explodes with every break.

Did you ever think about these things:...
1. Women react differently to stress than men
2. Women in nursing make up a much higher percentage than men, and by THAT are much more competitive for grades, jobs, etc.?
3. These women in your program may have other things going on in their lives that increase their stress level?
Maybe it's time you stop worrying about everyone else, and concentrate on your own education.

Quote from guiltysinsif 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?

To me, it seems like the majority of them have nothing to talk about other than nursing school, tests, and frustrating about clinicals/instructors. This becomes very irritating for me anyways. Just wanted to know if any other guys out there find it highly annoying?
I am not one of the guys, (I'm an older gal) but I can really understand your frustration. You must be with a very young crowd, possibly immature , inexperience in a lot of walks in life, considering the subject matter they indulge with! Just hang in there ...it is only school. Just do your stuff to the best that you can and you will get out and away from this, and when you graduate.....this is where you need to be assertive as to who your mentor is in the clinical floor. ........ this is where it matters a lot. The mentors either screw you or make you!!!
Wishing you the best and sending you some good and positive energy towards you. Do not let anybody else tell you who are.

After 20 years of the nursing stuff, two other careers and many other jobs I can say without reservation the drama continues. Nursing is among the caring professions and it entices caring individuals to its ranks. So when we need practice caring, we turn to each other. Hang in there because you can find whatever you seek through your nursing career (the good and the bad!).
