I can already imagine what responses I'll get....But anyway...I and im sure, alot of other people who are pursuing a degree in Nursing are tired of some of the remarks that are made on this site regarding Nursing school! It's already stressful for many of us who are trying to get into a program and to hear such things like " when will this end," "15 people dropped out of my Nursing class last semester!!,"etc makes it even more stressful for us! Nursing school is not easy , but Im sure it's not "Hell." I have known many people who applied and got accepted into Nursing school with a 2.7.Uhmmmm, thats "pretty average Joe" to me and hey, they're pretty good Nurses now.
Everyone's experience is different. But I love it that I have somewhere I can come on a day where it feels like I just won't survive another one like that...and have people tell me they know how I feel. And I know that they do!!!
There is only one person in my non-nursing life that has a CLUE what nursing school is like. Most people are utterly baffled. So on a bad day I love the support I get here.
Sometimes I don't even have to post, I find someone experiencing EXACTLY the same thing and I realize I'm not alone.
So...your experience may be different. You may LOVE nursing school. If you do, I will be thrilled for you.
I can understand your frustration, you don't want any more discouragement, you don't want to have to stress about the future. But please, don't deny me and those here like me the chance to get a little support and a digital hug or two.
grin. As I tell my child when he's worried about nightmares after reading a frightening book...if the title looks scary, don't read it!
