6 Signs You're A Nursing Student

Clinical, care plans, NCLEX, oh my! No one ever said that being a nursing major is easy! Regardless of what nursing school you attend, there's about a 95 percent chance that you will laugh and then cry at these six things all nursing students know are painfully accurate.

1. No matter how long you study you will never truly be prepared for your test.

Unless you feel like reading your 1,200 page textbook cover to cover, there's going to be something you don't know.

2. When your professors say "in your free time..." you mutter "yeah right" under your breath.

3. When tests have multiple correct answers, but you have to know which is most correct.

*Cries*

4. When you see "Select all that apply" on a test and silently scream.

Hmm... should I pick one too many or one too few this time? So many choices.

5. When you have to choose between the way you learned in class or what you learned in clinical.

6. When friends want to hang out, but you never have free time.

Friend: Wanna go out tonight?

Me: Nah, I have a test tomorrow.

Friend: Didn't you have one yesterday??? What about tomorrow?

Me: Can't... I have clinical in the morning.


All in all, nursing school can be tough and might drive you insane, but chances are it's exactly where you're meant to be. Keep your head up and remember that we all ride the struggle bus together!

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
