  2. Text Messaging During Lecture
    I think it's rude, too. I also feel like it's really unnecessary-does everyone ALWAYS have to be able to reach you? I, for one, like to "be" where I am, and if I'm at lecture/in clinical, I probably...

  3. Do Nurses Eat Their Young?
    In many ways, I feel like nursing is like any other profession or area of life-there are positive, helpful nurses/people, and then are the not-so-positive/helpful (to put it nicely) ones. As a...

  7. Eating before clinicals
    Try Luna Bars...they're very healthy/natural and are supposed to be formulated to keep you full...and I really think they do. And since they're in "bar" from, you could always just bring one along...

  9. How often do you get sick?
    I'm not even going to say "how often" I get sick, because the minute I do, I'll be flat on my back with another bug :chuckle However, I did have the most HORRIBLE flu in the summer-it seriously...

  13. How to stay in shape while in Nursing school....
    I would just say to try to make exercise a priority. WAAAY easier said than done, but try to do stuff like say to yourself, "I will exercise X number of days/week" and then write that in your agenda....

  14. How Do You Do It?
    I'm not a huge coffee drinker, but I do think that a well-placed coffee during a big study session (or any day when you need a lift) can be a help. By "well-placed" I mean a coffee that is consumed...

  17. It all seems so overwhelming..
    I wouldn't worry too much about "learning the sayings." Once you're in the nursing program, doing clinicals, and in the whole "nursing zone," it will start to seem much more natural. Honestly, after...
