I found out two days ago that I was accepted into the ASN program at ASU
, but now I'm scared stiff! :imbar What can I expect? How do I study to do well? How do I keep my sanity intact and not drive my husband and kids away?
I guess I'm just looking for any advise!!

Hand in all assignments on time. Keep your health and family's health UP...good food, exercise, ect. Have plan A, plan B and plan C for child care. Most programs allow little, if any, absences from clinicals. Take time out for fun. Keep up with studying, do not cram the night before...it will not work. Don't be picky about where you study, I've studied in a noisy skating rinks or an ER waiting room. If you have kids you'll do the same, no doubt.
Talk with your hubby about the changes that will come while you're in school. ie: messy house, quick uncomplicated meals, watching the kids ect.
Maintain a sense of humor at all times.
And on your very worst day...think to yourself...."someone named 'Furball' did it, I sure as hell can!" lol

I was just accepted in a LPN program but am on the standby list for an ADN program which is what I really want. I sat down with my family before I started the pre-reqs and just said this is what I want to do have dreamed of doing and AM going to do. I have assigned my 16 yo daughter and 12yo son things to do (laundry, dishes etc) and they complain but they do. My 16yo was so proud of me because at midterms I had a 3.75 gpa Now she is not c\o as much and even reminds me that I need to study You can do it if you are determined.. Good luck and Congrats !!!! We should keep in touch and support each other
