Just wanted to vent about nurses' attitude when one of their own becomes a NP student. I get it....there are situations when you are truly happy for your fellow colleagues or bestie. As for the frenemies, it is pure elementary. I don't discuss (brag about) my school schedule, projects or my fatigue from cram sessions. if i do, it is because you initiated the conversation. I leave my assignments and textbooks at home. Until I graduate and pass my boards, I am the same nurse with a new role. Plain and simple.
It's just awful how nurses take out their inner frustrations on those who are advancing as Nurse Practitioners. Be inspired, instead of envious. Worked for me!
