Why am I so scared about the final semester

  1. I will be starting the final semester of the ANP program I am taking and I am terrified. I hate the tests, I study like crazy and still have difficulty. The thought of a huge paper has me on pins and needles also. I need to continue to work full time, (3 12 hour shifts/week).
    I feel so stressed just thinking about it that I want to puke. I can't quit now, I have worked so hard to get to this point. I have friends that graduated this summer and I wish so bad I was done too. Anybody out there feel the same? Anyone have advice? Thank you!

    Well good luck to you! Usually the final semester ur just worried about getting your hours completed and applying what youve learn in the classroom to actual clinical practice.

    I was scared every semester when we went over what we'd be covering by the end of that semester. Once you're in it, it's not that bad. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. Just take it as it comes, and try to relax. If you got this far, you can do it.
