    ADN students, how much do you study?

    i probablystudy about 20 hours a week for school(except finals time, I studied 16 hrs in 3 days this quarter). I have VERY little time between school, clinical, studying and work to spendmuch time at all with my 2 year old. I would say that no, your kids cant expect for you to be around much. I only work 6 hours a week ad its a struggle to balance...i just tell myself/family/child its only for a short time nad Ill be back. NS really does take alot of sacrifice. Good lUck.

    Hmmmmm Why Do Nursing Students Fail?

    Nursing is a completely different way of thinking and some people just cannot think like that. Its hard, but you just have to use your brain differently.

    psych help!!!

    Our rotation is at a mental hospital. I am afraid of getting hurt. ALOT of these pts are there bc they cannot function in prison. The first thing we were told was about a nurse getting her cheek bone fractured by a resident last week. I am terrified of this. I am 115 lb and my "parter/buddy" is about the same. We would have NO hope of gaining control over a pt who is haveing a psychotic break(which apparently happens often as they are of course not forced to take their meds and thus their conditions are not controlled) The whole time I am there all I am focused on is how to keep myself nad my partner safe and not so much on the pts care or being an effective nurse. I just am not really sure what to do. I am really overwhelmed. My instructor basically says we need to get over it(Im not the only one to feel this way).
