can someone help me, I'm currently enrolled in a grad entry program, and in short I hate everything about it. I can't stand the lack of organization in the program, subjective grading, and that in what tests there are focused on therapeutic communication.
In short I'm sick of material, including the complete lack of education on science and treatments, and the professors obsession into turning every damn thing into a paper on my feelings.
I was a successful candidate for medical school but I passed it up because I believed in nursing, still do really, but I am so sick of writing papers on nursing theory, my feelings toward patients attitudes and outcome and writing completely redicous patient care plans
. I see how these things are important but not that they are the only important thing, I'm supposed to be an ANP, how am I going to heal the patient, say that I care?
Whats more is that this semesters grades should pretty well make sure that I can no longer go to med school.
P.S Apologies for the spelling
, I'm just angry.

Have you considered transferring to another nursing school?
Some direct-entry ANP program have a heavy theory focus that does not appeal to the clinically minded. While nursing theory is very important it might not be your cup of tea.
You know, there is no shame in admitting nursing is not for you and going on to med school. The nursing model and medical model do differ.
Even with a low GPA there is still hope for med school. There are post-baccalaureate program that will help you boost your GPA and get in.
