Nursing School Finals Week in 20 Memes (your REGULAR friends won’t understand)

I remember the first time I thought I was going to drown . . . I was about 4 years old and somehow wandered into the deep end of the pool.  It wasn’t long before I realized I was in serious trouble.  Within seconds my dad pulled me out of the water.

I remember the second time I felt like I was drowning . . . it lasted for two years straight.  It was called nursing school!

There is no way to sugar coat nursing school.  It’s tough.  But it is survivable.  Our goal here at NRSNG is to give you the tools and confidence that you need to succeed in nursing school and in your life as a nurse.

So while you drown your tears and sorrows in Ben and Jerry’s over these next few weeks preparing for finals . . . . take a second, enjoy these memes and have a laugh about the ridiculousness that can be nursing school.

1. I Actually Had a Excel Spreadsheet to do This (seriously)

2. It’s Worth a Try . . . Right?

My life… 😖
