Ok, ok...let's NOT psych each other out here. ;) I see these are some pretty universal feelings/emotions we are all going through now. These emotions must be the first initiation rite into nursing. I'm done with prerequisites - and I miss the excited person I was when I first 'hatched the plan' to become a nurse.

I'm in the same boat with you OP. I am running around trying to get my immunizations done, making a BIG production out of it, and I was wondering why the drama when it dawned on me that I'm running the last leg before actually becoming 'shaped' into a nurse. Well, that's how I see it - I'm a fruit bowl of emotions, which is very unlike me.

I wish you well, OP and I believe your emotions (and mine) will transform into the stuff that'll make us excellent nurses.

All you can do is try to stay positive and learn from the mistakes of those who have gone before you! All you can do is your absolute best - if you do that, everything will fall into place :). If your best means you'll be a straight A student, great. If it means you'll be a B or C student, great. If it means you'll have to look at other career options, you can cross that bridge if you come to it, and in the end it'll STILL be for the best. It'll all work out.

I started NS a couple weeks ago and I'm also taking statistics, and I gotta say...I was a ball of nerves and excitement, but I'm already so tired and busy I don't have any time for any crazed emotions. Just taking one day at a time. I planned on becoming an NP from the very beginning, so I was super stressed about keeping my GPA high and the cruddy job market, but now...no time to worry about all that. One day at a time :)

You haven't failed until you have given up. Don't let anyone grind you down. Just keep on going, no matter what. You'll get there.

Make sure you get some really good question and answer books, they will help you to test your knowledge and get used to the type of questions you will encounter on tests.
