I had a good time in nursing school and if backstabbing childish behavior occurred, I never saw it. We were all too busy and were supportive of one another. The insturctors were tough, but fair and consistent. The clinicals went well, and there was only one nurse that didn't like students and the rest were awesome.
For me it was the volume of work, care plans
, reading, lecture notes, etc. as I worked full time. Just disciplining myself to get it all done was the tough part. Sometimes I think I have adult ADD, because now that I'm working on my BSN, I still struggle with the discipline of sitting still long enough to do what I gotta do. For my ADN program I went to the library to study. This time I do it at home and don't sit still.
