    I wanted to quit nursing school because...

    1. I really would rather be a millionaire than work my butt off
    2. I really didn't want to spend ALL my free time studying instead of having fun with my non-nursing friends (whatever happened to them anyway )
    3. Waitressing for $2/hr wasn't really all that bad was it?
    4. I thought I would fail.
    5. Others told me I would fail.
    6. It took me longer to catch on than other students who were previously employed in healthcare.
    7. I'm a sympathetic vomitter and dead bodies scare the bejeezus out of me!:gandalf:
    8. I'm not a touchy feely person and I am very introverted...never thought I would end up in such a people oriented profession.
    9. I am more comfortable where I don't have to critically think and therefore I am never put on the "spot", can never make mistakes, etc. etc.

    Then I got over it, got a backbone, got some self esteem, got determined and now I am within weeks of graduation and loving every minute!

    1. because a bad instructor made me feel like less than a grain of sand.
    . didnt quit because I figured out it was her problem, not mine. Glad I stuck it out because now I have an instructor that is great.

    2. have wanted to quit when I am so tired and so overwhelmed. Keep going when I hear the pride in my daughters voice when she tells people her mama is going to be a nurse.

    3. and yes, there are days when being a librarian would be the most wonderful job in the worls

    I wanted to quit nursing school because it takes me a longer time to catch on to things that others seem to grasp quickly. I wanted to quit nursing school because for some reason people in my classes would see me and doubt my intelligence, which would in turn cause me to doubt it as well. But I'm......getting over it. And realizing that I can and will do this.

    Never! Going to nursing school was a lifelong dream of mine and I never felt like I wanted to quit.

    I wanted to quit nursing school because it was taking too much time away from my relationship. I did not quit...I graduated and two weeks later my relationship ended. Guess its a good thing I didn't quit. I would have lost both my life's loves.

    just out of curiosity-why did you choose to wait to take the NCLEX? I am a 1st semster ADN student and our instructors encourage taking it asap, it has a higher pass rate that way. I got into school quicker than expected-will actually be nursing in 08. we are already testing in ways similar to NCLEX to prepare us, i think my brain is adjusting LOL have a good day

    Because.... I had an instructor that was out for me and flunked me first semester and I was afraid to go back and face her.
    But guess what??? I did go abck, I did face her, I had more confidence, and now when I see her it is b/c her students are in my hospital and she has to ask me about my patients and whether her students can help take care of them (can we say ultimate satisfaction????). I am so glad I went back. I wouldn't be me if I wasn't a nurse!
