Hello, my name is Jenna and I am going to start nursing school for my RN-BSN in a few weeks. My question for my fellow nursing students and nurses is...

How do you find ways to keep your relationship healthy with your gf/bf/husband/wife? Studying for exams and clinicals will be more than time consuming throughout the semester. With this in mind, how do you find the time to keep up with your own personal relationships?

I'm not sure what to expect the next two years and I was wondering if anyone (who has gone through the nursing program) has any good pointers or tips about being in a relationship and keeping one!

Your feedback is much appreciated! I have a boyfriend who I have been with for a year and we have known each other for a couple of years. He is excpetionally supportive and he is aware and (sounds like) he is prepared for what is to come, but we do not live together. I live at home with my parents and he has his own place.

I am going to find ways to make time for him, but I find that almost impossible to do with the large amount of homework and studying I have ahead of me.

I love him very much and he is definitely THE ONE for me, so keeping this particular relationship is crucial. Help... please :shy:

I wish I had more specific advice to give, but the secret really is just to make time for each other. Unfortunately, how to do that is going to be different for everyone. Yes, there is a large amount of studying that you're going to need to do, but it's important to take breaks, take time for yourself. For me, that means I eat dinner with my wife every night, and spend at least an hour or so just being with each other, watching tv, talking, whatever. I try to arrange my study time so that I don't need to stay up late studying so we go to bed together every night. It's not always possible, but whenever it is I try to take a full day off every week to spend with her without doing any schoolwork.

It's really just a matter of finding what works for the two of you and doing that. It's not always easy, but it is possible. I'm halfway through school now, and my marriage is just as strong as it was when I started.
