I'm starting NS school in the fall and I'm getting a little nervous here.
I have all my prereqs done so I'll just be taking the nursing courses. I've heard from many people that nursing school is like boot camp.....People have said it was the hardest thing they've ever done. Most I've heard have struggled their way through it.
Today I met a woman at my daughter's school who graduated 3 years ago from the progam I am going to. I asked her for some words of wisdom and she said "There will come a time when you want to quit. Everyone goes through it. Just stick it out, it's all worth it in the end." She also said "If you're an A student, be prepared to be a 'B' student."
That kind of freaked me out.
I'm not worried about working hard. In fact, I get my greatest satisfaction by receiving an A from a class that I worked my a$$ off in. I just wonder what I'm in for. I'm dedicated. I'm ready. Am I in for it?
