    I'm more concerned that I'll get through school, get into the field, and HATE it. I will have wasted all that time and energy, and gotten nowhere.

    School doesn't intimidate me. Not knowing whether it's the career for me or not - that's what concerns me.
    Here, here Tilly. This is my fear too. Not that it's not the right field, but that the way nursing has to be practiced under managed care will cut my effectiveness, create an intimidating situation, and I'll wonder why I bothered changing careers. :angryfire

    Simply put, I'm terrified about all things school related: hating the field, affording to support my family, making decent grades. I am plagued by self-doubt!

    I am going to LPN school in the Fall. To tell you the truth, I am scared of not passing. I guess the only thing to do is to do my best. And if I fail, I will know that I tried my hardest so that is how I look at it.

    I was a nursing student and now I am a student taking two lousy credits pharmacology and career planning. I have no major at the present and took alot of classes to even get into nursing and now it is over for good, I've already been readmitted and failed for the second time. I feel incredibly stupid because I know the skills and was doing well in the class but anxiety grabbed me in the clinical setting and resulted in me basically loosing my confidence and not doing as well as I should have. I will finish out the year and take microbiology and business math over the summer and hopefully find something that I enjoy and can do well. I really thought nursing was right for me too.

    Elizabeth,
    College coursework is never a waste of time. Nursing pre-reqs are needed for a lot of healthcare professions from respiratory therapy to phyisical therapy to lab technology, you name it! You are not a failure and maybe nursing just isn't for you, but you could still be an ultrasound diagnostician or something else with patient interaction.
