So you want to be friends with a nursing major? Interesting choice.. I’m not going to say that befriending a nursing major is a bad thing to do… but there are a few things that you should know if you want to befriend a nursing major.

1. Be prepared to have uncomfortable conversations

Nursing majors talk about nursing major things… things that doctors talk about… things that might not be the most appropriate dinnertime conversations… do you get my drift? If not, I guess you’ll find out soon enough, best of luck to you.

2. Be prepared to have no idea what’s going on

There are a lot of words in the realm of nursing majors, words that make no sense to the rest of the world. I swear, these people are not learning English anymore, they are learning a new foreign language so they can talk about their patients like foreign ladies who talk about women when they get their nails done.

3. Be prepared to witness a LOT of stress

The classes in the nursing program are a little bit more… complex, than other majors. If your nursing friends aren’t stressing about their upcoming anatomy or physiology test they are either insanely smart or they aren’t going to be in the nursing program anytime soon.

4. Be prepared for late night study sessions

You might not be a part of these study sessions but you will hear a lot of random giggling and confusion coming from across the hall.

5. Be prepared for some of the greatest people you will meet

Obviously if you want to be a nurse you have to have some level of people skills. This means that when you befriend a nursing major they will (most likely) be one of the kindest most helpful people you will ever meet. And, think of it this way, through the confusion and uncomfortable-ness they will know how to help you when you get hurt, and you could always use someone that knows how to fix a boo-boo.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
