Hello all! I feel like this website will become most helpful the next four years of my life. We don't find out until March if we are in or not. I have submitted my acceptance to Northern, so hopefully I am accepted into their program! I was just wondering if any Pre-Nursing Students, Nursing Students, or current Nurses could give me any advice. I am a CNA, and I volunteered at the hospital over the summer, and I have job shadowed a nurse, so I'm quite sure Nursing is what I would like to do. I am worried about the work load in college because I have heard it is unbearable. I am very organized, and my time management skills are ok. However, I get stressed out quite easily because I want to do so well. To prepare myself I am taking Honors Anatomy/Physiology in high school this year, and I plan to do another job shadow. I am looking for advice on studying, good classes to take, what to expect, and anything related to Nursing! I have no idea what are of Nursing I would like to go into, and I'm very open to any area. I aspire to possibly become a Nurse Practitioner someday if I can handle being an RN (with a Bachelors). Thank you so much for taking time to read this!!
