A day in the life of a Full time student.?

I'm 17 graduating in 2018. My career destination at the moment would be to pursue a major as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. I'm taking some classes online right now and plan is to go to college as soon as a graduate high school. However I really am curious at the state of responsibility/ chaos of a full time nursing student. My friend dropped out of nursing school because it was to difficult for her and she is really smart. how hard will it be? how much stress does it take onto your body? and most of all What is it like in a day of a life of a full time student getting there pediatric nurse practitioner degree? #college-stress #nurse-practitioner

College is hard, no doubt about it. However, if you are willing to put time aside to study and get your homework done, no major is too difficult for any person. If nursing school is what you want to do, you most certainly can, don't doubt that. As a full time student, you will generally have around 2-3 classes each day, Monday-Friday, which will last approximately 50 mins to an hour and a half each. The rest of the day outside of this is yours to do with how you please. This is where time management is very important in school. If you use your time outside of class wisely you will have enough time to get your work done and succeed in school. There will also be plenty of time for you meet people and enjoy a fun personal life outside of school as well. Balance is key in college. The earlier you learn and apply this, the quicker you will see the results you want to in the classroom.

You will need to focus on stress and time management. In order to manage stress you have to manage your time wisely. <span style="background-color: transparent;">You have to set a routine for yourself and stick to it for the most part. Once you get into the groove of a routine it will be much easier for you to manage your time and have enough time for everything you need to do (including relaxing). Make yourself to-do lists on a weekly basis, use Google calendar or a planner to keep track of events, deadlines, and due dates. In addition to setting a routine and sticking to it, plan out relaxing activities into your day. Or set aside a time, after everything is done for the day, that you can have "me" time. I have also personally found it essential to not only find time for myself but also make use of that time in a way that is best for me and my holistic wellness. I have found the HeadSpace app to be an essential tool in helping me relax and generally feel more relaxed throughout the day, Guided meditation, even if you have a busy schedule, will make you feel more at ease and relaxed throughout the day as a whole (not just when you have the time to relax and focus on that "me" time).</span>
