I have had a really difficult semester in my ANP program and have been really impacted by what I call "stealth" opposition. I have been sabotaged at work with regard to my schedule and clinicals. All of a sudden, I get the schedule last to sign up and no one can make any adjustments. One coworker said directly that no one wants me to finish and that many who seemed supportive previously just really thought I'd drop out like many of them had before. Others feel that I should work for at least 10 years before seriously pursuing a higher degree. At home, my spouse says she wants me to finish and constantly asks me how long it is going to take. Simultaneously, she constantly makes unreasonable requests on my school work time and gives me grief about putting too much time into this. What??? My kids are supportive and we often sit and do homework together and I get them to help me do internet searches, put together powerpoints and graphics into my papers. They really are great helpers.
Has anyone else experienced this stealth jealousy/opposition/discouragement?
