I'm a 46 year old BSN that graduated in 1988. Been a nurse all my life. Suddenly, I have this desire to get my NP. I never thought I wanted to go back to school, but now I do. I want to get this done before I'm 50. I have looked into schools and really think I can do this. I have to take a statistics course before I apply (to the school of my choice) and also I need to take the MAT or the GRE.. I've looked at test practice questions and I'm nervous. Which test would you take if you had a choice? Does anyone have much experience with these tests? I just have not buckled down and done actual school work for many years and I'm a bit nervous and afraid that my brain is too mushy now, and maybe I can't do school work. I guess it's just jitters. I really want to do this, and so now I'm telling myself "You CAN do this!!" over and over. I hope it sinks in soon. Any thoughts, or help about the MAT/GRE thing would really be appreciated!
