A strong positive message can move mountains. What do you do to remind yourself to never give up? Is there someone in your life that's always there to pick you up? I believe that inspirational/motivational quotes are a great picker-upper ... especially, if read at the right time. Share your stories...

Congratulations for surviving the first week! Throughout your journey, don't forget to celebrate the small victories. I'm a third semester student, and so often I feel overwhelmed. When I do, I try to remember to take one bite of the elephant at a time, and look back at everything I've accomplished. Best of luck to you.
Remember this is your time to ask questions, make mistakes (not that many) and get messy!... as would ms frizzle would say on the magic school bus
Good idea on getting started with your shots. Do you have your CPR certification? If not, that's also something you're definitely going to need. Are your books not posted on your bookstore's website yet? I only ask because ours were posted before we even found out what was required. That's awful though because there's a lot to be taken care of in that short amount of time! :-(
I am one of those older, second (well, third) career people. I got a bachelors in Biology years ago in hopes of going to vet school.. I was not motivated enough or mature enough. I kept working in the horse business until I had children and then I had an opportunity to go to school to get a teaching degree (the equivalent of an ABSN) which included a masters. I became a teacher because I liked to teach; I had taught horseback riding lessons for 20 years. Then the bottom fell out of education and I had educated myself out of a job. Next, following my mother's advice from 10 years ago, I went back to school to be a nurse. I did not do it because I thought it would be easy, it turned out to be the hardest thing that I have ever done. I had worked for a large animal vet and a lot of the processes and medications, some procedures, are very similar to human medicine. I LOVE nursing. I know I could have done this years ago, but I don't think I was ready. Yes, I had more education and was older than some of my instructors, but I was still new at this.
Not all second career, older, educated nursing student think of this as a last resort, it is just time for us. Fortunately for me, I found a job in a hospital that values diversity and my age was not a detriment.
There are success stories out there.
I love that you said "today is celebration day!" Jessi_o!
I got my letter too, I am so happy..... but confused on the orientation date. It said Wednesday July 22, but July 22nd is a Monday. I hope is Monday, because I bought a Disney vacation and we are to leave on Tuesday July 23.
