Calling All Nurses!
I’m starting school soon, and I plan on beginning my prerequisites in order to become an RN. I’m just going for an Associate’s degree, not a Bachelor’s (at least for the time being). I just have some questions for all you experienced nurses out there:
-Is nursing school super hard? I’ve heard some pretty bad horror stories about it, and I’m not going to lie- it scares me. It also makes me wonder if I’m capable enough to do it.
-What are the daily tasks of a nurse?
-How do patients/other nurses/doctors treat you?
-How many days a week do you usually work? I’ve heard 3 days, 12 hours each is the usual (and what I’m hoping for, honestly). Is that true?
-What would you say an aspiring nurse needs, personality and work ethic-wise? What traits aren’t compatible for an aspiring nurse?
Honestly, send me all the info you can. If you want to respond to this post, send me messages, etc.– DO IT. I really want to become a nurse, but I want to make sure that what I think it is in my head isn’t completely far-fetched and unrealistic. Tell me the hardships that come with being a nurse, but also the rewards. I just want the truth.
Thank you so much in advance!!
