Is anyone else just totally flummoxed, burnt out, overwhelmed by the SHEER VOLUME of information that we need to learn here in these NP programs??
I guess this is what a masters degree is all about, but honestly, at this point, it's like I'm facing a constant firehose of information just being blasted at me. I could read 24 hours a day and still would not get through it all.
I hate to say this, but it's lately been making me sort of depressed about becoming an NP. I mean -- we really need to just keep abreast of SO much, need to know SO much ...I'm not sure i'm up to it. ... I'm not sure it's worth it, or that it will be all that enjoyable at times, knowing that I will be constantly and FOREVER looking up infomration ....because I cannot possibly remember it all .... or that I will potentially even forget where or what to look up!
My grades are good ..it's been ok until this last clinical year. Now I feel Im just losing motivation due to this unbelievable volume of stuff we are supposed to read and know.
How can I get over this slump?? I've only got less than a year left!
I feel your pain. I have a little over a semester to go and I feel like I have hit a stone wall. While talking with my cohorts I have realized that they feel the same. It has been such a long hard road- but we are almost there.
