I’m certainly not trying to downplay haleyreeces’ experience, but someone had asked about people’s experiences in the thread from last year and this was the response that was posted from someone else that’s currently in the program:
“In terms of general information about my experience so far, the program is very doable. We're finishing up what seems like the actual science-behind-nursing classes right now: pharmacology and acute and chronic. It's humbling and it takes up much of your time, but if you're willing to work, most everyone will be able to get through the program. The majority of the faculty and staff are there to help you succeed with only a few there to just collect paychecks. The workload isn't too insanely difficult but managing time is of the utmost importance. Your peers are your best friends throughout the program. You spend a lot of time together. Clinicals have been by far the best experience because for me, I came from a business background and just being in the middle of a health care setting has been very fun. After only 7 months, we're halfway there to being nurses which is fun, exciting and terrifying. You'll understand why this time next year.”
Everyone has their own perspective and I think it’s important to move forward not expecting things to be perfect but hopefully we can have a good attitude and make it the best experience for each of us! I’m trying to keep this positive outlook, anyway.
