When i first started nursing school, we had a meeting type thing with some of the senior upperclassmen nursing students (this was a BSN program at a liberal arts college).
They told us that they had 4.0's in highschool, and got C's in nursing school. They also told us to forget about a social life or playing a sport in college. And all they EVER do is study!!
I left this so called "meeting" in tears, calling my mom and trying to change my major. Thank god i didn't!
Whenever people ask me if nursing school is hard, i just tell them that yes, it is difficult. But you can still have a job, play a sport, have a social life AND still be in nursing school.
