We all know nursing is a delicate professional, and some might say that nursing is not only a profession but a calling. Therefore, many people have develops various perception on the nursing students in regards to the profession they are about to take up. Some of these perceptions have proven to be true in the long end while others have not.

This is not entirely true however one has to have the passion for reading. Nursing students are made to read widely therefore you can expect to read quite a lot if you intend to join nursing school. On a lighter note, you do not have to carry a book around with you. Nursing students have free time too as much as many people would think otherwise. The life of nursing students does not always revolve around books one has some free time, however, most time its study time.
The other common perception on nursing students is that one has to be a genius in order to make it in nursing school. This is somewhat a bizarre perception since geniuses are very few. Therefore, this does not mean that everyone in the nursing school is a genius. However, for one to make it in nursing school one has to be smart. The last common perception on nursing students is that nursing is majorly a feminine professional hence an Alfa male character cannot hack it in nursing school. This is both a myth and a perception.
