Its alot. ppl say nursing school is hard, and it kinda is, but a better way to put it is that it is "alot". In the past you had to learn things backwards and forwards (sometimes only one or the other lol), but in nursing school you have to learn it backwards, forwards, sideways, inverted, at a right angle, inside out and....well...I think you get the picture. There is also alot of extra stuff to do and they throw you right into the fire with the first semester clinical being at the nursing home (bed baths, brief changes, cath changes, tube feedings, med administration, and wound care). The program this go round is a little strange as they changed the order of some of the learning objectives and they are talking about changing things again for next semester. Let me know when you start who you get as a clinical instructor and feel free to msg me or post and ask any questions you may have!
