    I just graduated from RN school and don't feel like keeping in touch with my classmates. I didn't like how there were so many cliques and people talked about each other and such. I hated the drama, negativity and am happy I'm away from it. Anyone else feel this way?

    I've come into the nursing profession with the compassion to help people. However, in nursing school, I feel everyone should help each other to a "point". My current dilemma is that there are a few classmates in my class who are leechers. Unfortunately, they are attracted to me. I am a nice person and love helping people. I've made photocopies for people and let people see my notes. These classmates had valid reasons (i.e. sick or computer problems). I'm okay with that.

    However, lately other classmates have asked me to write papers for them in exchange for money. I didn't write any papers and told them flat out that I wont go there and do that. Another classmate asked if she can photocopy my flashcards. And another keeps asking me what hints or pointers I have to pass the test. I only know what everyone else knows and just study. Honestly, I think these people are flat out LAZY!

    My question is how do you handle the leechers? I don't want to be rude and burn bridges but, I don't feel that I should study and work hard only to let people have it easier. I am married with a kid. These classmates are single.

    I understand that nursing school is stressful and there's a lot of pressure to do well and pass. I don't want anymore added stress from these leechers.

    I thought perhaps I could just act unavailable and make excuses that I'm busy. Would that work?

    Sorry I REALLY had to vent. Thanks for listening!

    I think being an alternate or on the top 10 of any waiting list is better than not getting in at all. Just stay positive and pray. Life happens and people give up their spot or accept to go to another nursing program instead.

    Good luck!
