Abstract: Traditional nursing education that is perceived as autocratic and conformist produces feelings of isolation and desperation in many prelicensure nursing students. This article illustrates, through the voices of two nursing students, how prelicensure students can dispel their isolation and desperation. Implications for nurse educators are discussed.
