    You don't have to be a rocket scientist, but you do need to be well-organized, able to handle stress & have a caring heart. Everyone's interpretations of how hard nursing classes are is different. You'll have to find out for yourself. It's definitely harder than any prereq's I've had to take, but I don't find it extremely difficult. It's a lot of work & it takes up a lot of time, but it is manageable.

    I find the hardest part about school is TIME MANAGEMENT. There never seem to be enough hours in the day to do everything that needs to be done, read everything that needs to be read, etc.

    Jen pretty much summed it up.
