    I'm afraid this hard work will be for nothing because employers will be too scared to hire someone with a broken spine (something I didn't know about until 2.5 years into my BSN).

    Due to medical expenses, my husband and I had to file bankruptcy. I'm terrified that my credit score will prevent me from getting a job :-/

    That due to a 20 year old misdemeanor I will be at the mercy of the BON in regards to my license. I can finish school, pass my NCLEX and be denied my license.

    Awesome. Nursing (and the schooling required) does have a way of making a person fearless...perhaps too fearless at times!

    That all this hard work and I still wont be able to get a job. That being said, first steps first, I am afraid to fail.

    Failing....my first clinical starts in two weeks....my clinical teacher cannot stand me and she is looking for any reason to fail me....the anxiety has been overwhelming

    Killing someone. Is no one else afraid of this??!?! I work in ER...what if while I'm tending to my tension pneumothorax, my unassuming ABD pain turns into a ruptured ectopic pregnancy and I come back to find them dead?!?!?!

    Forget her. Seriously. Just concentrate on the task ahead and pay little attention to her. I've failed a nursing course before...it's not a big deal. You just pick yourself up by your boot straps and keep going. Getting wrapped up in drama and petty nursing instructors WILL contribute to failure though.
