I have a tendency to get very depressed when I fail something big.
There are two things that I am already deathly afraid will happen when I start:
1. Not getting into the nursing program
2. Not passing the NCLEX.
I am going to study as hard as I can and do my best, but the fact I'm going to do my best is what scares me. I'm afraid of finding out that my best isn't good enough.
Now, as many are aware, passing the NCLEX the first time or getting accepted to your program of choice the first time you apply, are not marks of a good nurse. What is
important is passion and a desire to do your best.
I am scared of having that sinking feeling where you feel everything is crumbling down around you. I'm scared of what a blow like that will do to me.
Who else here hasn't even been accepted to a program yet but is already scared to death of these things?
