I think everyone who goes to nursing state schools feels like you do. State schools have been around much longer, they have at least 20-25+ years headstart compared to these "new" schools (except for NSC, but they're getting tougher too). State schools are preferred (price, tried & tested) Well, they should be! All those years of experience of perfecting their craft, they ought to be. I hate to say it, but students are just a number (it feels like this at times). It's just the way it is, I don't know if that'll ever change.
It's a matter of how much one is willing to spend, willing to put up with (all schools have their 'rules') and how badly one wants to be a nurse! It's nursing school, it supposed to be a wild ride! It feels like you're the only one who feels overwhelmed/frustrated, but you're NOT. Just study harder, re-write the book if you have to, try to do your best. If they can't see it, and they chop you off the program anyway, then make sure you apply to one of the nursing private schools. Here's why:
So that, when you graduate and make all that money, you can donate some $ to the school that helped you get your degree (as an alumni)! Make sure these schools stay open. Remember where you were and remember who helped you get where you are! If it means it's a private school, so be it.
