I had a very intense orientation today. We walked in, signed in and immediately got handed course registration sheets already filled out with classes, all you had to do was fill in your name. They randomly gave out the sheets, half were for the first section (more so morning) and half were for the second section (more so afternoons). The schedules are so crazy. They vary day to day and week to week, the classes are in different buildings and the lab groups are all mixed around. The clinical sites were a little unusual. They're all rehabs or nursing homes with the exception of one hospital. It's like right by where I live so I put it as my first choice, but I doubt I'll get it.
The reason I'm freaking out now is because I have no idea how I'm going to support myself while I'm in the program. I can't really work at all because theres no steady schedule. I'm in panic mode now. This is really what I want to do and I've wanted to do it for a while, but I'm just not sure how it's all going to work. It's an ADN program and I want to go on to get my bachelors/masters and become a NNP eventually. I wish I had stayed at home
I don't know if I wanna take out a loan or not...I'm trying to weigh my options.
Did anyone else have this issue? How did you deal with it?
