Im a first year nursing student

  1. okie...someone please give the truth to me!! Everyone has been telling me how stressful nursing school is, and how im gonna "loose my mind " and " become overwhlemed" and all that GREAT stuff!! Well, i really dont understand that, b/c soooo far i absolutey love it. Maybe b/c its only my 1st year, actually its my 1st MONTH of nursing school..but i really am enjoying it. I dont find it difficult or stressful. I find it interesting and exciting. so tell me...does ANYONE LIKE IT???!!! or am i gonna grow to HATE IT??!!

    to me, simply because someone says that something is overwhelming or stressful, they don't hate it. i love nursing. when considering the fact that i have children, and other responsibilities that would go on regardless of school, it can be a tiring thing.
    i love being in school, but do i like the early hours, no, i love learning, but do i get tired of studying, yes, but do i stop studying, no.

    i, as an lpn, get tired of the "stress" of my job but i love what i do and would reccommend nursing in a heart beat. if i didn't love it, i would never have started this semester of rn school. so, i think sometimes, some of us use words and don't mean it literally, i speak from experiences and for myself too.

    no one knows whether you are going to like it but you. all the best to you and welcome to the board.

    I am loving it too

    Though many people in my class seem really stressed and I think that is in part to that they work F/T and have families and are going to school...

    I have my "life" (and my family's) very organized so I have time to study etc. I am hoping the study habits I am building now will help once stuff gets tougher.

    Good luck!

    I found this sight last week and find it very interesting
