She has some concern, but honestly I don't blame her. I'll be going to school with lots of beautiful nursing students and we will all be working closely together. Also they say your classmates in nursing school become friends for... Read More

    Back in the Dark Ages when I went to school, I didn't have a girlfriend. I was the only male in the school. My classmates were divided over,"Is he gay?" or "Keep away from my daughter!" As for being gay, I took one of my classmates out and showed her that I was not gay. As for their daughters, well that's another story. But even today my wife gets "hurt" if I talk about another nurse too much. She even got hurt when I hugged the Vet that takes care of my horse. I had taken care of the Vet in the hospital after she was kicked in the chest by a horse. I had given the vet special treatment as payback because three months before she had seen my horse through a potently fatal disease. After ten years my horse just had his 32 birthday. I don't know how old the vet is. You will have this trouble with your girlfriend all through your nursing career. I don't know what to tell you. If I had the answer to the workings of the female mind, I would be a billionaire.

    Haha makes me wonder what I would do if I was ever put in that situation.

    Tonight is the night that I put on big clown shoes and do The Forbidden Dance of the Irish Yak Herders. That's just plane crazy because there are no yaks in Ireland. I want my meds NOW!

    You need to decide if you want to marry someone with these kind of trust issues. If she is like this now, not having even seen what environment your nursing school is like, what will happen when you start working in a hospital and she is your wife? Hmmmm.

    To the OP... I will piggyback on this quote... my ex girlfriend had trust issues like this. I can only say one thing: if she doesn't change and get comfortable with this, run like hell.

    Wow.... I just have to say that I was in a relationship somewhat similar to this before I started NS. My ex (operative word) was concerned that I'd be working with "hot doctors" all the time. I had to remind him that real life in the hospital is NOT like Grey's Anatomy. Honestly, most people in the program (at least in mine) will be too busy becoming a nurse and learning how to deal with life & death issues to even maintain the relationship that they have, much less start a new one.

    I agree with a previous poster that many times your NS buddies will be like your family.

    Ultimately, it sounds like you and your GF have some serious things to take a look at and explore - why is this even an issue? You're already worried/thinking about cheating and you don't even start NS for another year?

    Well, it's quite clear that your girlfriend either doesn't trust you, self-concious about herself, or has been hurt in the past. If you guys can't come to some type common grounds with the situation then she's gonna give you trouble everyday! Nursing is swarming with women!

    I agree with many of the posts here. I think it would be best to sit down and find out why she feels like that. Keeping communication open can sure be a major plus in a situation like this.

    Best of luck man!
