I got changed over to the R.N. program at my school. I was currently enrolled in the LPN program and was almost finished and then decided to go and get my R.N. I am only 23 and I do not have any children yet! I figured I had better do it now!
I feel like it is so far off though and really it is only about a year away and I will be done. I guess I was afraid to make the next big step and get my R.N.
Any suggestions on how you made it thru? Was it tough? I am told you can't work a full time job at the same time because of all the studying that is necessary?
I always have enjoyed these boards. You get so much support from other nurses.
Heeeey! Congratulations! Take it one day at a time, don't be too hard on yourself...it's tough for almost everyone. Don't fall behind in your studies, take the time to make close friends and HAVE FUN! Don't be afraid to ask questions if you don't understand something. You can really make a fool of yourself in clinicals! (I once tried to teach a patient how to use an incentive spirometer......upside-down!) So you see, EVERYONE goofs at one point or another, laugh at yourself and move forward.
I worked through school along with having 2 small children so it can be done without sacrificing grades. (very difficult though)
