I'm Having A Midsemester Crisis! - Follow Me Through Grad School Episode 207

Do you know what a midsemester crisis is?

A midsemester crisis is when you get to a point in the semester, where if you read one more syllable, submit one more post, and/or take one more examination, you're liable to lose your mind!

Do you know what a midsemester crisis is?

One of the major symptoms of a midsemster crisis is FNP school induced delirium. Unfortunately, when it strikes there's no quick fix! If you're in the midst of a midsemester crisis, I highly recommend that you:

Take a deep breath

Remind yourself why you decided to go on this journey to become a Family Nurse Practitioner. Trust me, your determination is bigger than your current obstacle.

Reassess your situation

Things can often seem worse in our head. In grad school it's important to have a reliable support system. At a time like this, a good sounding board and a hug can go a long way. Often just talking it out, and getting a different perspective can help alleviate your anxiety.

Find the strength to push through

A pre-semester, midsemester and/or post semester crisis is bound to happen at least once (most likely multiple times) throughout your time in FNP school. If you're having one, try to remember you have a bigger goal in mind, and that this too will pass (even though it feels like it never will)!

FNP school is not for the faint of heart or mind. It will challenge you in ways you had never thought possible. Couple grad school with balancing one's day-to-day challenges, it's no wonder midsemester crises are so prevalent in grad school.
