I am entering my nursing program this fall- in a month actually... and I am, in a few words... TOTALLY FREAKING OUT!!!
I don't know what I should be doing at this point! I have completed all of my pre-matriculation requirements, tuition is covered (Praise the Lord!), gone over my monthly bill budget a gazillon times (I'm a parent and working through school-- that's essential), purchased my uniforms and supplies, and I have all of my books (emphasis on ALL-- there's like nine of them). WHAT NOW!!!????
I guess what I'm asking is, how should I be preparing myself for this? Should I start reading the first chapters of my books? Should I start prepping for NCLEX?? Should I... I DON'T KNOW!!??
I think I'm a little excited.
This is a major change for me. I have a school aged child and a preschooler and I'm going from working full time to studying full time and work study. I'm starting school. My son is going back to school. Money is going to be tight. I feel a little overwhelmed. I know I'm ready. I have my plan in place and I guess I'm just like "GET ON WITH IT ALREADY!!!"
I'm feeling tense like a runner at the start of a race, waiting for the time to explode full speed ahead!
I need some advice guys? What did you guys do in the weeks leading up to your program? I should probably relax, and I will.. really.. I promise!!
But what else!?
