Trudging Through the Saturation Point
I'm officially more than halfway through my nursing program, and, to be honest, I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. Objectively, I know I've come a long way over the last few semesters, but there's just so much information to digest that I feel like I can't keep it all straight.
There are literally hundreds of maladies with various accompanying symptoms and medical procedures that I need to get down, and, at this point, it's all starting to seem like gobbledygook.
As a runner, I'm used to how hard it can be to break through the proverbial wall, but I also know that, if you keep going, it gets better and easier to finish the final leg of the race. Of course, when you're in the moment, that knowledge doesn't make the struggle all that easy, but it is still comforting.
If any readers are having a similar experience, I encourage reaching out to your peers, many of whom may be having the same struggles. In my case, I'm thankful to have a strong support group of students, and moving forward, my hope is that if we just keep plugging away, if we just keep taking the practice tests, reading the text, and studying hard, that it will eventually all come together.
