Just think of nursing school as boot camp. They break you down, try to convince you that you don't know anything about anything, make the smallest of tasks considerably more complicated than they need to be, harp on you about things that seem to be utterly pointless (like the length and color of your socks), and re-teach you how to think, talk, walk, and live "in a nursing manner." There is some method to this and some of the people in nursing school probably actually need it, but those of us who don't feel like it is an unnecessary petty bunch of ****. Just remember, when you are done in a very short amount of time, you can do things your own way, but you will feel an amazing sense of accomplishment for having lived through it all and maybe just maybe some of it will actually make you a better person. Don't fall into the trap of being personally insulted by it all, the ones that do generally don't make it. The same thing will actually apply when you start your career, you will be inundated with policy from the place that you work and a lot of it will seem frivolous, you will be taught their mission statement and expected to live by it (sort of), you will even be treated like you only function with half a brain by some residents, attendings, management, probably even experienced nurses, and definitely patients. If you can't handle it in nursing school, it is definitely time to start thinking about a different career path.
