I heard today that a fellow classmates mother died. All last semester she was in and out of the hospital (pulmonary embolism, sepsis, etc)

my first semester of school my son was in the hospital the first week and later, my mom fell and crushed her patella. I know that illness is not unique. But it feels like we are being tested at times, like, How much do you really want this?? How important is it?? I have seen nursing students pull themselves through some really rough spots, there are some on this board that are struggling to get through. Like proving that you can take care of other sick, injured or suffering people because you have been there yourself. A lot, if not all my classmates have faith, sometimes it feels like a trial by fire.

When others would have quit, Nursing students keep going.

Anyone else ever feel this way??

I have NEVER been tested more than I have since I dedicated myself to becoming a nurse.

A divorce, a death, loss of my financial aid (even tho I'm a 4.0 student), a fiance who isn't sure he wants to stay in this state (helloooo, service cancelable loans here...), personal health issues... the list goes on. I swear once a week I think, "Am I not supposed to be doing this? Are the fates trying...desperately...to protect me from something?" It's weird and I have spoken with other classmates and the same thing has happened to them.

Maybe we are being tested by the powers that be to see if we're worthy of taking care of their own!

I am so sorry you have had to go through so much but I agree that we are constanty tested. At least some of us. Last year I was ready to go to nursing school then I had sugery and got pnemonia. It was horrible and it took months to recover. I am ready again..god willing. We just have to have faith.
