Nursing school isn’t just about passing exams and making it through clinicals alive (though those are two very important concerns for every student!). It’s also about learning as much as you can before becoming a full-fledged nurse. But as every seasoned nurse knows, there are some things nursing school just can’t teach you. Here are 50 things every nursing student should know from someone who’s been there before:
1. Sleeping is optional.
2. Being overwhelmed is perfectly normal.
3. Learn what a Code Brown is before you are part of one.
