Hi everyone,

I just started a Lvn-rn program, and I am just full of anxiety! I can't sleep through the night. I wake up at least every 2 hours with thinking about information I have to memorize, or things I will have to do later in the week. This anxiety is new for me, and I don't understand what is causing it! I am organized, and never forget to do things or bring stuff to class. I am doing well in class so far, so I don't think it is fear that I will fail.

It's just really weird because this has never been a problem in the past. I was never anxious in my Lvn program. I worked full time while taking all of the RN prerequisites and was easily able to handle it. Sleep has never been an issue for me. I used to be able sleep anywhere any time, and now It takes hours to fall asleep, and I wake up every hour thinking about school stuff.

I am not working right now, so I have plenty of time to study. My home life is great, and I don't have any major stressors in my life right now. It has been a year since I have taken any classes. I am only a month in to the Lvn-RN program, maybe I just need to adjust to being a student again? Has anyone else experienced this? What do you do to calm your nerves?
