10 Feelings Every Nursing Student Faces

Normal feelings any college student feels, but super nurse-y.

10 Feelings Every Nursing Student Faces

1. Nervous

The amount of fear that happens while waiting for an exam grade can be similar to having a gun held to your head.

2. Sad

When someone dies, when you fail something, or just when you don't feel good enough, sadness is definitely a drowning feeling.

3. Selfless

That quick lifesaving feeling is a trait that is important to have when becoming a nurse. It is pertinent to be the type of person that runs to the trouble, forgets about everything else happening in your life, and helps the person in need.

4. Proud

When you pass a test, answer your instructor's question right or passed your semester's classes, you become filled with a warm, new confidence.

5. Relief

Being done with the day, done with a class, or finish an assignment, a wave of blank rest overtakes your body and you can finally relax.

6. Determined

I can do this! I am an amazing, brilliant person and I can handle the worst class, patient, and vein. It is a powerful feeling knowing that you could hold the world in your fingers.

7. Fresh

Every new patient, every new class is a clean slate.

8. Professional

That feeling of walking around in new scrubs and stethoscope in hand, showing people that you are becoming a nurse. This is an important feeling to indulge in.

9. Intelligent

You are pretty much treated as a WebMD to friends, family and anyone who sees you in uniform in public. When the problem is simple and you actually give good advice, it makes you feel like a genius.

10. Frustrated

Sometimes anger just builds up... WHY ME, WHY DID THIS HAPPEN, WHY HIM/HER. You want to just rip everything apart, burn your scrubs, and burn the whole building you're in down.


But remember, that throughout all the good and the bad, you are still a (pre) nurse and you are the future. You are something to be proud of and all of the rough waters can be smooth seas if you make it happen.

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
