Being a nursing student is no joke, at all. There are sleepless nights, clinical filled days, and weekends spent doing nothing other than studying...BUT you are not alone and one day we'll be saving lives and it'll all be worth it!

2. After Orientation Day and the first week of classes you realize they might have been right:

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is.
