  3. Is it normal to not graduate "on time"?
    Honestly, who cares if you are "behind"? No one cares. You'll see in your nursing program that many people are older and some already have one or two degrees under their belts. I was in a class with...

  5. FLAME ON!
    That's my source of contention as well. Hello! Nursing is so versatile. There's so many unfilled, entry-level nursing jobs out there if you're willing to move and take a chance in another location.

  8. If people make me feel bad, I've been bullied
    I abhorred nursing school for the plain fact that it was so cliquish. I felt like I was back in junior high and high school and these were girls who were second degree/ second career people. I was...

  12. Do Male Nurses Get More Respect?
    I notice that when a male patient is being a jerk to one of my coworkers, I can intervene by just having a physical presence. 9 out of 10 times they'll settle down. I'm talking about the ones who...
