    I agree with you totally. I also had to put a lot of effort into my studies in order to do well. I love what I do and find it interesting so that helps to make the effort of learning worth it in the end.

    Becoming and being a nurse doesn't require an exceptional intellect.

    Being dumb-as-a-stump would probably be an inhibitor but I'm of the opinion that most people have the intellectual chops to handle nursing.

    OP, the fact that you're asking the question implies that you think nurses as a group have higher than average IQs. Where on earth did you get that idea???? I would assume that most of us are of average intelligence. Getting into and through nursing school is more about determination, motivation, and self-discipline than sheer intelligence (same is true of medical school, by the way).
