Im in my first week of my LPN school. It is an 11 month program, so it is fast moving. Basically, a normal day is: take notes on chapter 1, go home, outline chapter 2 for the following day while also studying for the chapter 1 test that is the next day. there are 2 subjects a day. Basically, you are studying for 2 different subjects every night while outlining the following chapters. Im not sure if I worded that correctly, but I hope you understand. I knew going into this that it would be a lot of work, I just didnt imagine the stress level. Im basically teaching myself everything. 3 hours of lecture is not enough to be tested the following day. People have gotten through it, so I know its possible, it's just very stressful.
I know this is what I want to do, Im just hoping that I am actually able to do it. If you fail 2 exams, you are kicked out of the program. I understand why, it's just scary to think about, when youhave 2 tests a day. Im up all hours of the night studying, and it's still hard for me to understand. Im to the point where I even feel guilty eating dinner with my family because I need to study. But all the hours of studying Im doing, isnt even paying off, because I still barely understand.
Im just venting and Im sorry this got to be so long. I hope there is someone out there that has felt this way that can help get me through it.
Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
