I agree with this. Also everyone's experience in NS is very unique and individual. Sure we all stress over grades, care plans etc, but NS is also what you choose to make of it. I can tell you all about the stress, care plans, crazy instructors, crazy classmates, impossible scheduling etc, but until you are knee deep in it, you can't really prepare for it all.
I have found my experience to be more positive than not. I have made life long friends because of school. I have been able to let my lazy genes have complete reign over the housework. There are going to be days where you wonder if you can put one foot in front of the other, or wonder when the last time you got more than 3 hours sleep was. There are going to be days where you are flying high from some huge accomplishment, new procedure in clinicals etc. You are going to have days where you wonder when the last time you saw your family and friends and they will wonder the same. Then one day will come in the middle of all the crazy assignments, up coming tests, etc. when you take a few hours out and go hang out with your classmates at some fun place just to give your brain a break. (remember this sentance. I just did it last night and it made a world of difference when having to study for four exams coming up in the next 2 weeks)
Just remember it is what you make it. Get involved with your school, get involved with your classmates. Congrats :)
