Patty’s Answer

Hi Calin,

My experience was unique to me as it is unique to each and every nurse you speak with. What I think is a common denominator is that nursing school is highly competitive and grueling. Truth be told, if I knew how hard it was going to be I don't think I would have attempted applying for nursing school. In a way it was great I had no idea what I was getting myself into.

I think the most important thing to remember is that most careers which carry a lot of responsibilty are going to be challenging. The reason for the grueling training and education is because nurses carry a huge responsibility with each patient they encounter. Therefore, the preparation is very much necessary.

Do I think that should scare you from pursuing nursing? Absolutely not. It has proven to be a very satisfying profession. I don't regret any of it. I'm actually very glad I decided to pursue nursing. I hope this helps. Best of luck to you in your future endeavors.

All The Best,

Patty Born

Kathleen’s Answer

Becoming a nurse was the best feeling in the world! Anytime you work hard and achieve a goal it feels great.

I was an EMT first, then worked as a Tech in the Emergency Department while slowly working my way through nursing school. I feel proud to be in such a demanding field that is well respected.

Kathleen recommends the following next steps:

Get some anatomy coloring books, see if you find it interesting.
Volunteer at your local hospital, looks good on a resume and you will learn!
