*** I posted this in the General Nursing Student Discussion forum, but I figured I'd repost, here, I just wanted to know if anyone else felt the same way or has been in the same boat. (hope i dont get in trouble for reposting)
I just posted on a thread in the pre-nursing forum that asked "why do you want to be a nurse" and as I wrote ,it really hit me that I could have been a nurse years ago and I missed out on so many opportunities and now I litterally have to start all over. Now I have to go through all the anixiety, dread and fear that I won't get apcepted to the program that I applied too, and that I will fail the NLN exam. I attended both cc and uni which both have excellent nursing programs
. But I was so caught up in the med school drama I never really explored my other options. I know I shouldn't have any regrets and everything happens for a reason. I am greatful for the exposure that I have from my current job that has helped me to know without a doubt that this is what I want to do. Still if I knew then what I know now....
Anyone out there experienced the same situation; your thoughts are welcomed.
