I've just started my 1st semester of nursing school. I used to be a medic in the US Army and I thought going to nursing school was going to be a breeze and after my first week I just wanted to quit and reenlist in the army. When I was deployed I carried morphine and narcan in my shoulder pocket, I could start a IV in a black room with my night vision on, but now I cant even tell the difference between 2 types of skin cells. I thought I was going to know everything they were going to teach, but I thought wrong. I can save a life on the battlefield but i cant tell you what atoms are in carbohydrates. It is just very frustrating because I was a good medic and I did my job to the best of my abilty every single day, now I'm just a college kid trying to get a passing grade. I guess I just have to keep pushing threw and just grind it out.
