    I just want some blunt feedback from people who have been in nursing school.

    I love the academic side, and enjoy making a difference in clinical but I can't keep up w the stress. What are my options of a different career path that can involve helping people with less stress?! Should I try to tough thru the remaining four semesters?

    I must add that I have a mental health history that meds are working ok but not ideal. That adds a great deal to my struggle. I also have a very ill mother that I am the constant caretaker of.

    Advice appreciated!!!

    I completely ditto the post above this one. It's jam packed. I give myself a five minute break for every hour I study. Been studying from the time I get home until when I go to bed! I feel like I'm learning so much though!

    Try to bottle up that eagerness and optimism. People are already starting tobact dreadful in my class. But not me

    I had two herniated discs on my lumbar spine that I had surgery on. I wear sketcher shape UPS for extra support and cushion. So far when I wear them I'm good aka can get out of bed the next day with minimal pain. Just my two cents

    No, you do not practice these skills on each other.

    My first week has been crazy busy but fun at the same time. I spent 7 hours reading my first night! Stock up on highlighters!

    Dress nicely to the first day. It will make u feel more confident. Put ur syllabus and schedule in clear sleeves bc u will be thumbing thru them a lot! Teachers aren't so bad. Give them respect and u will receive the same.

    Good luck to u!
