Hi, My name is Kim. I am a 30 year old mother of two girls, ages 4 and 7. I am starting A & P on Monday. I've been visiting this site for awhile now, but I have never posted before. I have really struggled with my decision to go to Nursing School
. My mom has been a nurse for 30 years and she tried to discourage me from going into this for the longest time. I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the medical field but was unsure of my abilty to handle blood & gore. I took several classes over the summer semester in the Health Information Technology program but never could get excited about pushing paper work and coding. It was so boring!! I took a huge leap and decided that I might regret not giving nursing a try so here I am. Still scared to death that I won't be able to handle it but so excited at the possiblities that await me! I am planning on going for my ADN starting next fall. I would love to hear from others who have struggled with self doubt and who are taking their pre reqs right now. I would also love to hear from those who are current students in nursing programs
...how are you handling it? What is it like? Do you recommend it? Thanks for listening and sharing your stories.
