Failing grades, personality conflicts, money problems...
How many get their hearts broken by nursing school?
Not me, but it seems that many may...

Good thread ... getting some good responses.
Yes, nursing is tough and nurses must be tough. But that is true of a lot of fields. A lot of "hearts are broken" on Wall Street ... and in Hollywood ... and in the military ... and in academia ... and on assembly lines ... etc.
Anyone who goes into nursing thinking that it is an easy career is being unrealistic. That doesn't give us an excuse to be mean, but it is the truth. Throughout history, nursing has been a tough career that requires intelligence and strength from its practitioners. Look at the history of nursing and you see strong women facing adversity, not weak ones with "cushy" careers.
