We had 4 classmates that were together by graduation and they are perfect couples. Most of the girls in our class were taken already. My buddy did go for a few girls from the nursing semesters behind us. I did kind of go for a girl in our class, but I kind of got the hint that she wasn't interested in dating at the moment which I understood.

Imo, if it happens, it happens, but don't go out of your way to get the girl. What it boils down to is that you are there to pass, get your degree, and prepare for NCLEX. Everything else can come after. There are plenty of others out there when you start working if you are looking to start a relationship.

I'll just put this out there, nursing students are on a whole other level when it comes to personality changes (guys and girls alike) and that might be something you don't want to mess around with especially with a relationship. Some people can get real mean.

That is so funny! A fellow student claims you sexually assaulted her, stalked her, coerced her, yeah, hilarious. If you think that can't happen, this will be some valuable life experience that will help you in your next career. Why don't you do something safe like bullfighting, juggling lit dynamite, or picking fights with gang members. Your classmates are not lined up to be your checklist of ex's. Pull your head out of your.... pants.... and pay attention to school. Think of them as your sisters, they may be hot, but a no-go zone. Even if you are innocent, a claim of impropriety of any type will probably get you kicked out of school, at best- unless the leadership at school gives the thumbs up and a wink to swinging, banging, party dudes. I'm pretty sure there are plenty of hot women in bars, mountain biking, and otherwise kicking ass throughout the US. Please show the tiniest amount of common sense, take some advice, and compartmentalize your life.

BUT! Not saying it can't work. I would just highly recommend not dating in school. Wait it out until it's over. But hey, do what you gotta do!

It has massive potential to backfire. I'd suggest not dating someone in your cohort unless you feel like taking that risk.

If you can't think with the head outside of your pants, nursing doesn't need you.

Haha. I'm gay, but I think dating a girl in your cohort could potentially be an awesome idea. You'd have the same schedule, understanding of each other's school/clinical/crazy work schedule, and you'd always have something to talk about when you finally get home at the end of the day. It depends on the type of person you are and what kind of girl you are looking for. Love can be in any one of your social circles, don't close one out.

I met my fiance my first semester of nursing school. We were both looking for the "real deal", not just playing the field. It was really nice having him as my boyfriend throughout school because we were both taking a lot of the same classes and we could study together. My only advice is to try not to take on their stress as well as your own. School came easier to me than my fiance, and I often found myself stressing about his grades and his future. Focus on your success and just do your best to be supportive to your significant other without taking on all their worries. :)
