All nursing schools are expensive: books, supplies, uniforms. It's the nature of the beast.

Get used to being ripped off as a nursing student and then later as a nurse. The hospitals will run you into the ground and make it a point not to compensate you fairly. Your first few years will be spent prowling the floors on the graveyard shift. Your own health will decline rapidly from lack of sleep. You will be maltreated by patients, administration and doctors. The doctors will yell at you and demean you for very little and too often no reason just because they can and knowing there will be no repercussions from the hospital(They make exception for the ones they are banging on the side). You will be forced to cover up their mistakes or face dismissal. You will regret ever being sucked into an endless, thankless job that ultimately will cut your own life short from exposure to toxins, illness, and a generally filthy environment. Good luck and lets hope you see the light and change your mind before the debt you are in is insurmountable.
You forgot to mention all the azzhole nurses out there who love to bully other nurses!!!

Let's not forget being bashed for what you do on internet forums like this one. The public perception seems to be that if you are a nurse then you are a lazy slut. People will think that you spend all your time sleeping with doctors, or taking coffee breaks. While the reality is that you will work so hard that you'll damage your own body, health and relationships. You'll take crap from administration, from your patients, from their families, from doctors, from other nurses and then from the public. And all you'll have to show for it is a bad back, a lack of sleep, and a bunch of a$$holes who will tell you to "be happy you have a job". I loved nursing when I started because I felt like I was helping people and doing something with my life that would make a difference. 11 years later I've come to realize that people will think you are lazy and stupid no matter what you do. The only reason I stay- that occasional patient who will thank you for saving their lives, kiss your hands and call you an angel. They're the only thing that makes the long hours, the sore feet, the headaches, the bad back and crappy public perception worth it in the end.

I have very gently guided my children away from any medical career. I would never want them to experience the level of hate in that atmosphere that I did on an everyday basis. God Bless you and I can appreciate what you do.
Just because I'm curious, what career did you guide them toward? I hope you didn't suggest social services because it's the same BS, but for half the pay and double the education.
