Ok, so nursing school this fall. Im kinda worried about how sick I get. Usually I get sick 4-5 times a year... As of the last several months my symptoms seem to have been much more milder when I do get sick. But the last 3 weeks I got slammed with a bacterial infection from hell, and now I'm on my 3rd round of antibiotics.
Well I guess my question is, if I get slammed with another infection from hell. What is recommended. I know taking time off and or delaying with studies is impossible.
What do we do?

I agree with what Caliotter said. I would attend and be ready to stay but also let the instructor or preceptor know what is going on. I got really sick a few years ago while taking a pretty intense summer school classes and working and being under a lot of stress at home.
Now, I take better care to prevent illness. I believe in natural and holistic remedies and do things like: 1) pay attention to my body so I notice before I get super sick. 2) drink lots of water and get lots of rest when I am starting to feel under the weather.
