Ok so here is my rant/concerns. Input please!
I am a LPN getting ready to start a bridge program in May. I mean I truly want to be a RN, I am just dreading going through nursing school all over again. I can already feel the anxiety building up inside me. Im scared Im dooming myself from the get go. The first time around in nursing school I was excited, but now I just know what Im getting myself into. I just keep telling myself its only a year and I can do it! I know once I get there Ill suck it up and do as best as I can because Im only going to do it once, no failing for this gal! I just am ready to be done before I even start. I finished my LPN about two years ago and still feel a bit burnt out from that even. Has anyone ever felt like this going into their bridge? I hope maybe this time MAYBE it will be a bit better since I have some studying skills and what not, but Im so not looking forward to it. It sucks even more that I start in the summer. Ok thats my rant. Im just a bit of a worry wart and I can feel those nursing school blues creeping up again =(

LOVE your GD avatar! Huge fan here!
xoxoxoxo I too am studying for my RN, but it's going to take me 2 years, doing one class at a time so I can keep working as an agency LPN and make my work schedule coincide with my school schedule! Right now, I'm in pre-reqs, but will start nursing 3 in fall of 2014, IF I pass the challenge exams for NU 101 and 102. SO much work, and so hard! I know why you are dreading all of the work, it's exhausting, time consuming, difficult, and so much more!
Even though I was the valedictorian of my LPN class, it's still hard! But I think it will all be worth it to have more options. I truly want to study holistic nursing and/or teach nursing or even school nursing, as I am 'older' and used to be a teacher! I cannot keep doing 8-12 hour shifts passing meds much longer without going nuts with boredom! Best of luck to you and keep on truckin!
