Presentations in school

I have recently become aware that my program will require presentations throughout in order to complete the requirements. I don’t understand why this is necessary, especially for an ADN program. I cannot stand public speaking and thought nursing wouldn’t require that of me. I’ve done it for other degrees, and always hated it, but this just seems like overkill and totally unnecessary. Why??? I wish I had known this before going into the program; that is how much I detest public speaking. It makes me want to cry.

Don’t worry chances are no one is listening to you anyways , anytime somebody gets up to speak including the teacher I just zone out

When I'm in there sitting, I'm actually thinking of my medications' actions while I'm staring at my instructor. So, I'm present but not mentally. LOL 😂
