Nursing? Sounds like fun.

An almost anonymous (inside joke) friend of mine who just began her first semester of nursing posted this on her blog recently:

this is not a good sign...

excerpt from a nursing handbook published by my faculty

Tips for Surviving Your Nursing Education...

"Say goodbye to your social life. Say hello to your nursing textbooks, your new best friends."

"...Get plugged into work early; that will help to set a precedent for your study habits. Don't have a boyfriend 1st semester! :)"

"Remember to read, and try not to leave studying - especially for tests - to the last minute."

"Keep up on your reading. Use highlighters! Don't stress the lab exams; eventually you'll pass."

"If you don't think it's important, it is!"

"Enjoy it now, it only gets harder."

Maybe Metaphysics isn't so bad after all. ;-)
