At first I’m not really sure of my decision to pursue another course. It’s in my mind that I am too old to get my degree in Nursing and way behind to excelled academically. Our class started middle of June, I was very excited at the same I felt I don’t belong to the group. Come to think of it, my youngest classmate is 16 years old, fresh from high school and I’m almost double of their age.
I really tried my best to fit in. My professors are younger than me too. It’s a challenge everyday, i don’t want to be noticed rather i just wanted to learn and get higher grades. I am different in so many ways because i did not go back to school to pleased anyone, this is really my desire, my dreams to get a certificate. Unlike of my classmates, most of them get Practical Nursing because their parents want them to follow their footsteps. Some are spoiled brat that has been kick out from other school. It’s a way of their punishment. (being enrolled in smaller school) Everyone has a unique story to tell and have their own issues personally and socially. 35% of them has knowledge in nursing, some are BSN and caregivers that shifted to PN.
Yesterday, I felt so disappointed! Our Emergency Nursing teacher scolded us for some of the student behave improperly. It’s been ages that i never experienced it. Admittedly, some of my classmates acts poorly, act not according to their age. As the oldest in the class, i felt ashamed.
