*For simplicity, undergrad means my first 2 years in college which comprised of the prerequisite classes. The final 2 years is nursing school.
I did well in my 2 years of undergrad with a 3.91 GPA and a 4.0 science GPA at TU, but nursing school was still difficult for me. My presumption was that nursing school was going to be easier than undergrad because I was "already in" the program. I was less serious than I was in undergrad and did not really try hard enough. I am also the type of student who does last minute studying and still get an A, which does not work in nursing school (sometimes). My flawed mentality after getting in, and very bad habit of procrastination bit me in the ass in nursing school. By the way, some of the nursing students who did better are the ones who did poorly in undergrad because they feel they have something to prove (either to themselves or others). So study study study and don't lose focus! All in all, nursing school is hard, I don't care who says otherwise. :)
