Another Day, Another Dollar

Somehow, despite having one fewer course this semester, I feel like I’m already getting my a$$ handed to me. Perhaps it’s the fact that since we’ve survived the (apparently) hardest semester of all, the bar is raised. Could be. All I know is that I am mentally, physically and emotionally exhausted, and it’s only three weeks in.

Maybe this is the nursing school version of the sophomore slump. As in, we’re trudging through term 2 out of 4. Maybe the bloom is off the rose and the excitement/ideal of becoming a nurse is being lapped by the reality of life as a nursing student. Maybe it’s the fact that we have to switch our brains between advanced med-surg and public health concepts on a daily basis. With a little bit of role development thrown in for good measure. But we all seem just … plain … tired.

Is it Spring Break yet?
