Help! I Want to Escape from Nursing

Even though I had my doubts while I was still a pre-registration student, I stuck out my nursing degree and managed to graduate with the highest grade possible – getting a first post as a Staff Nurse / RN on a 36-bed medical ward I’d enjoyed as a student. The only thing that kept me [...]

Nursing Student – Discouraged with Nursing School

I am struggling just to get through the program and the abuse from the instructors is terrible. Most of them are condescending and disrespectful. Of course, there are some great instructors, but the bad outweigh the good, by far. It’s a great disappointment for me.
We are in constant fear of being failed [...]
