Thankfully I have had some good conversations w nurses around here. One I was able to really sick down and express my fears. I am also thankful for the positive responses in my last post.
I am not a naive kid, I know nursing school is hard--hey life is hard. I learned that I can have a life (it just may be a little less than what I am used to but really I don't have much of a life now as it is--so no biggie) as long as I get time w my hubby and a bit w my kids here and there I am good. Also someone said that since I get A's in my prereqs don't expect that in nursing school--well I was told that many people get A's in nursing school and that I should strive for that--not lower my standards just know that as long as I am leaning and doing my best that if my best is a B then that is good enough but I can work to get those A's--it is not impossible. Oh and not to listen to people that say that because then I might lower my standards and that is not good (if I think I can't get A's then I won't, if I know I can then I will work to do it). The mind is a powerful thing and telling someone they won't get A's is setting them up for failure--IMO.
I am not trying to make problems or anything I just wanted something more than what I had read on here. I wanted to hear from nurses around here, nurses I know and trust, ones that will tell me the truth (I know that you all are telling your truth but it may not be mine--if that makes any sense). I wanted to talk to nurses that know me and who I am for the truth.
No one sugar coated anything for me. If I am making trouble and have to be kicked off I understand--just warn me first. I have never been kicked off a forum before.
