Hi everyone, I am starting my first semester of nursing school this fall. All my prerequisite courses are done! I'm very excited to start nursing school, but I'm nervous about the clinical experience. I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I am currently on SSRIs and have resumed therapy in preparation for the stress that comes with nursing school. My biggest fear is having a break down during clinicals. I'm afraid I'll buckle under the pressure and I'll cry if a nurse makes me feel dumb. 

My question is how do I grow thicker skin? How do I keep my composure and succeed in nursing school?
