Grad school frustrations

  1. Hi All, I am new to this sight, so hello to everyone. I came here is search of support systems. I am 5 months away from completing my FNP, and am feeling very overwhelmed. Anyone out there who can identify? Trying to decide if I am in over my head or just a little shaken in the confidence department. I have been a nurse for 23 years, 18 of it in ER. I know that I am a good nurse, but not feeling very confident in the NP role. Doing fine in the testing area and evals are all ok, but suffering from this overwhelming sense of "What am I doing here". Feels like a lot of hoops to jump through. Is it just my situation, or do professors make this the most miserable experience of your life on purpose? Maybe it builds character? Well, any words of wisdom would be appreciated. Thanks
