I had to study 4-5 hours a night...you will have to put your life on hold for a year but it will be worth it...I love being a nurse! Don't freak over the tests! Just study hard and ask questions until you understand it...the teachers are there to teach you...make them!
Congrats I graduate in June and has been going since July 2012, maybe sure u study hard, ask questions And apologize to your friends and family now that for the next year you'll need to be selfish with time because its not easy, goodluck!!
