Talk me down people. I start nursing school in 4 weeks, at which point I assume I will no longer to be able to work full-time at my job where I don't make enough money to support myself anyway even... Read More

    Hey Kimtab---
    thanks for the post. As like some of the others that posted mentioned, I thought I was the only one freaking out. It's scary to be taking on a new endeavor!!! I think what really gets my feet cold and my heart pumping is when I read some of the "horror" stories. I don't really mind the icky stuff--code browns, blood, and all---I'm more worried about how the veteran nurses might treat me! YIKES. I'm not usually one to take crap from anyone, but for some reason the posts where student nurses mention being treated rudely and nasty by the vet nurses just really gets me. I know all vet nurses aren't like that. The way I figure it,they were once in our shoes. I guess I feel like I'm going to be there to learn and someone has to teach me, so that eventually I can be there to help them out...ya know what i'm saying. I'm sure I'll deal with them if need be; It's just that the program and clinicals are going to be hard enough without having someone who is supposed to be helping to train me, rag on me every time I have a question.

    In any case thanks to all of you for the words of encouragement!!! I hope the shakes eventually subside!!!

    By the way, Kimtab and I think babynurswannb, you all are in Atlanta?? Me too!!! I'm expecting to begin my nursing prereqs: Human Anat I, Chemistry I, Microbiology and Statistics this Fall, in approx 4 weeks at Georgia Perimeter. GSU has a new accelerated program that lets you get BSN in a year. The first class enters this fall and is expected to graduate next Dec. 03. I hope to get into this program next fall. What do yall think about the accelerated programs???

    welcome kim and good luck !

    where there's a will there's a way !! i'm glad you were persistent and got a different person in financial aid.

    i'm using loans too because i'm not working, 5% is very low.
