I'm getting very discouraged.

  1. 0 So far my overall GED score in my cc is iether a 3.65

    or a 3.7.

    And I'm getting insanely discourage because within my local college district, the CC I got to happens to be the most difficult anatomy/ nursing classes to get into.

    I've finished all the GED course, except for history. So being the dummy that i am, I didn't know how to organize my classes and winded up leaving my science classes all together in the end. I originally planned on transferring in fall 2014. But now I realized how competitive nursing can be and I'm just overall overwhelmed.

    I have a current 77% in my anatomy class, so I know for a fact I won't be able to get an A. but I can try to in my physio and micro class. I even switched from full time to part time from fafsa just so I can study more in micro, anatomy, and physio.

    I live in cali, so I want to get into either
    csu long beach
    san jose state
    channel island

    maybe even uc irvine. But I'd need to take higher science classes.

    So I guess what I'm asking is, what else should I do to be more competitive? I struggle alot with my generalized anxiety disorder. I understand the material, but by the time it's test day. I panic and begin to doubt myself completely. I begin to erase answers thinking that I'm wrong, then reerase them again to put in another answer.

    I doubt myself a lot actually. currently in therapy for it.

    Are you able to do test proctoring? I have a panic disorder so through the school I am able to test outside of my class and also I am given time and a half to take it. Don't be ashamed to ask for it. Through this forum I have learned that so many suffer from MI and we should learn to advocate for ourselves. I am a work in progress and that's okay. One day we will be nurses and have compassion through understanding what patients are going through!
