Classes for my nursing program start Monday!! I'm SO excited/nervous/anxious that I've had butterflies in my belly since Thursday!! I want this so bad and have wanted this since I was 18 (I'm 29 now.) I am SO looking forward to starting!!

I remember feeling this same way when I started. You will have plenty of these moments during school. I was nervous my first clinical, and every new clinical site I went to; I was nervous during my first lab, sim lab and skills check off. Nursing school is full of those butterfly moments. We all survive these and you will too!! Good luck.

Same boat here!! I have wanted this since 18...i'm 29 also! I start tomorrow too! I'm excited but SO nervous!! I'm mostly nervous about my kids having trouble with my new schedule (early early mornings) but I guess they will get used to it.

Just remember-- if they're your kids, taking care of them is not called "babysitting." It's called "parenting." He can do it. :)

I have 5 kiddos. I'm scared out of my mind on how they are going to fend without me. It will be interesting for sure.
