Hi! I'm new and need some input from some of you in the same boat, or who have been in the same boat. This may seem a little silly, but its troubling to me all the same.
I've recently decided to go (or try, at least, to go) to nursing school
. It isn't something that I've ever considered before in the least, but something that I feel compelled to do, if that makes sense to anyone. I've kept it relatively quiet (at least until I know for certain I've been accepted to nursing school), but from those few people I have confided in, I'm only hearing negativity. Either it's "you'll have to clean up poop" or "you'll be forced into the night shift because you're new." What they don't understand is that, while I know a certain amount of this is true (especially the poop part), it's still something I feel I want to do, regardless.
Can anyone relate? In general, how do you deal with negativity without letting it change your mind about nursing? Also, is all this negative stuff I'm hearing really THAT bad?
Thanks in advance for your responses.
