  4. What do you so to relax from nursing school?
    At first it was some wine and TV on the weekends...as the intensity grew so did my need for escape. I worked out more (every day after class); baked cookies, cakes, etc.; played computer and video...

  5. Am I going to be able to make this relationship work?
    When I hear people say things like this it makes me wonder what else is going on. Nursing school is not the reason to break off a relationship and sometimes the struggle through the program can make...

  8. Is nursing school supposed to be harder?
    Take a look at the statistics of your school, retention rate, placement rates, NCLEX passing, etc. If they can't provide you with this information then administration doesn't care about the results...

    Maybe I'm the naive one but I went into nursing knowing that I'll be dealing with bodily fluids on a regular basis. Human beings eat, sleep and :poop:. Our first rotation was in a LTC facility and I...
