OK, I have been a member of this board for about 7 years. I have had many many false attempts at starting pre-reqs for nursing and have always talked myself out of it.
This is my dream. I want this. But I just kept getting in my own way. I'll tell myself it will be too hard, it will be impossible. I project into the future and put up road blocks and obstacles that may or may not be reality. I'll tell myself that I want to pursue something else and will try that something else only to come back to nursing. I've wanted to be a nurse since I was 5, just haven't taken the leap yet...
In 2006 I took chemistry and it has since expired (5 year rule) so I think I'll take baby steps and start with just that this fall. I should add that I also work full time and have two young kids so I can't take on too much at once right now.
I'm writing this because I need some encouragement from my fellow pre-nursing students to stay motivated and not get off course again.
