What’s nursing school like? Are the courses hard?
Nursing school is hard. You must stay focused and have good study and organization skills. It is fast paced and you are expected to learn a lot. But if you want to be good at what you do and have a life-long career, then working hard for your goal is a good thing.
Nursing school is different from high school and from other types of college classes. Instead of going to a 4-hour chemistry lab, the nursing student’s lab is an actual health delivery site (hospital, clinic, etc) where the class will probably last for 6 or 8 hours. Nursing school teaches students the information, and then takes them to a hospital with an instructor to help them apply the knowledge. It is instant use of the information you learn. By the time you graduate, you are ready to take your place in the workforce quickly and to progress rapidly. Yes, nursing school is hard. So is every other worthwhile endeavor you will undertake in your life.
