Anyone else experiencing burnout??

Posted

You are reading page 2 of Anyone else experiencing burnout??. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

I hear you, I am thrilled to be in nursing school and totally anticipated that it would be hard, but I too am a mother and wife, and my son got sick and had to stay home from school, and that is stressful. #1 Any mother would feel terrible that their child is sick #2 Nursing school makes it so we don't get to spend as much time mothering them as we would like. #3 My guy is a teenager, but he is still my baby. #4 I had to leave him to go take a test. #5 My husband is out of town for two weeks on a business trip. #6 I have finals on Thursday and Friday and have had no time to study.

So yes I am a little burnt out, but as a nursing student (In my second year now), I know that I will just have to buckle down and get it done. Newbie, we can do this. You have motivated me to get cracking on the reading and I hope that I can encourage you. Just knowing there are others in the same situation makes me believe I can get through this. Think of the big picture. We are that much closer to being nurses. Regards,

Jean

Yes!!!!!!!!!!!! I have final exam this Tuesday and can barely stand looking at my notes, just took a 2hr break. I took my recorder and taped muself reading all my study guide notes, so I can actually listen as I do something hands on like clean my house. I more semester to go. I think we are all burned out. Hang in there!

Jean, Hang in there! I've been through it all also. Keep up the great job! I have kids also, and it's been hard for me to be gone when they were ill. Things will get better! Kathy a second year student in St. Louis

I am so burned out too. I am just finishing level III and I have to say it feels like an eternity until I graduate. I hate all the busy work that we have to do, so irrelevant and pointless. I just want to finish, be a nurse and go on with my life. I am doing great in the program but sometimes it all seems like a never ending nightmare. My family life sucks because of it cause I don't have enough time for them, my friends have given up on me. I guess I am just having a pity party today. I guess we just need to snap out of it and keep placing one foot in front of the other and eventually we will get to the finish line.

Good luck with finals everyone!:bugeyes:

that is SO true- just push on til we finish- uggg- I am pep talking myself to death! :)

oh to OP- oh it is just beginning- you will build up a tolerance/ gain coping skills to gt you thru the next two semesters--- being really organized and rested has helped me IMMENSELY-just know it is going to be crazy so just get that coffee or a bath and take care of yourself-- it has done me a world of good- I'm not forgetting things or yelling @ my dh as much -lol!

Yes. I'm totally feeling burned out! I have a week and a half left and I have so many things to do before graduation. :o Hang in there though. We're almost done. After Dec 19th I'm celebrating!!
