Truck: I'm one of six males in my class of about 30. So you work hard. We all do. So you used to get basically really good grades. We all did going into Nursing. Yes, you have had some medical
experience. So do I. It doesn't matter beyond a certain point. Most people are far below you in intelligence? Maybe so. Nursing School
is an entirely different type of schooling that is very different from anything you have ever encountered before.
You aren't open to honest criticism. It's not a bad thing. Use honest
criticism as an opportunity
experience doesn't matter, other than you're more comfortable with vitals.
Your test questions will be unlike anything you've seen before. They're written that way for a reason. You'll see those types of questions on the NCLEX, written just like that.
You think your study method is unconventional? Mine is too. I'm getting A's and B's. What works for me probably won't work for you or the rest of my classmates.
The lesson that they're trying to teach you right now is humility. Not learning that lesson will cause you to fail.
Guess what? I don't come off as a know it all, rather I come off as eager to learn. I seek out learning opportunities, and grab them when they present themselves. Why? Because I know
that I don't know. If you're that
intelligent, you should already know this stuff.
