I thought this would be a better place to write than the student's forum since you all have been through the entire picture already. I'm almost through with my 1st yr of NP school. Have completed patho, pharm and will take assessment this summer and start clinicals in fall.
I started school due to a near divorce which hasn't happened yet, but is potentially lurking around every corner. I've done well and gotten all A's while rasing 2 teens and working 2 12s a week.
I'm concerned because due to multiple additional life stressors that have happened over the past 2 mos, I am now nearly exhausted and several people, including one friend who is an instructor have told me that clincials are much more stressful.
Is this true? Did you find clinicals more difficult to live through than patho and pharm?
I'm hoping for less stress, so that I can hope my life will become more managable.
Thanks in advance,
