I haven't began nursing school as of yet (I also start this August) but I can tell you even through my pre requisites I have lost friends. I put so much time in my sciences to get the best grades possible and I had friends that didn't understand how hard it was to manage time between keeping up with family, a bf, and those friends. I have drifted a part with a friend that I've been friends with since grade school. I it's like everyone wanted a piece of me to spend time with !! It is sad to drift a part. I've made some new friends as well that are in the same field who do understand. I hope to make other friends but, if I don't then that's just how life goes.
