How did I manage stress when I was in nursing school?

How did I manage stress when I was in nursing school? View this 1987 video of a rap song I wrote, and then sang with classmates.

“This rap was recorded in 1987 by University of North Carolina nursing students. After listening to Run-DMC Jon Seskevich made up this hip hop tune about his classmates and experiences while walking to his psychiatric nursing clinical rotation in Chapel Hill NC. This video was shot later in the semester for the school’s video yearbook. Jon is now a nurse clinician specializing in Stress Management at Duke Hospital.”
