I am a pre-nursing student on my first year of college and I am so unbelievably stressed out I don't know what to do. I have wanted to be a nurse for as long as I can imagine, and I am so fearful that I won't achieve my dream. I have the worst anxiety and stress and I am constantly stressing out when I get any grade lower than an A. I really need some advice on managing stress because I'm afraid it is really taking a toll on my outlook.
I have such a tight schedule with all my volunteer hours and with my 17 credit hours, plus studying, homework, and trying to balance a social life. Well lack of. Haha. I feel so burnt out and discouraged, and I'm unsure why. I am doing well in my classes, not 4.0 material but I will probably fall around a 3.3-3.5 for this semester. I am so scared of the unknown. What if I literally don't get into a nursing program? What will I do then?
I know I sound so whiny and I apologize I just really need a little reassurance, please.
Do you have any advice for getting into nursing school?
Anything would help. Thank you.
