28says of anxiety

  1. hi ive been browsing this site for a min and i decided to join!!! i start the lpn program in philly in 28days and im full of emotions... nervous, excited, anxious, all the above.. like many others, i decided to go this route because all the rn programs have a waiting list a mile long!!! im just wondering if some others csn share their experiences thus far.. if you are just starting lpn/lvn programs, new grad, lpn/rn bridge anything would be helpful!!how much time and effort really goes into studying, what classes will be like, will i put on weight...(not that i need a pound!), how hard was it to work and go through school.. part time, were you able to network with clinical sites and so on!!!
    thanks and best wishes to all

    Hello, I start my cohort Sept. 4, 2012 and I am very excited. I am not going to work during that time. I know some people say that they will work. I have a friend in an LPN program at a different school and she is still working full time and she says she doesn't know if she is going or coming sometimes. I know everyone has a different situation. I've been told that our program is a lot to add to a full time job. My program is 12 months. I hope that I don't put on a pound. Good luck!!

    Hi eklectisol, welcome to allnurses! Your post reminded me how nervous I was back when dinosaurs roamed the earth. As my previous job had been assistant manager in a trendy clothing store it was quite a shock, let me tell you!

    Hope you'll be able to network with current students here, but as for the jitters - the nursing school process is designed to take you step by step, so the actual experience was much more manageable than my fears. Best wishes, and to you too shudva!
