    I don't know if anyone will check out this post now as it was written a while ago.

    I am a student nurse in Canada, about to enter my 5th semester and I am still wondering if I will make it. As someone earlier mentioned, about half of our starting class has dropped off like flies!!! AND at the end of last semester, we were cautioned not to feel like we were home free..........yip, it means there are still people to lose!!

    I liked the advice on taking it one day at a time. I too began the program looking toward the end of the three year term, now I am just grateful to get through one semester and sometimes one week.

    This coming semester is supposedly stuffed full of paperwork, like no other semester before..........I pray I can keep up the good work I have been able to accomplish thus far. My worry comes to not being able to spend enough time with my two young children, as they don't really understand what is going on. I just keep telling myself that it will all be worth it when I am finished. Nursing is my second career, but has always been a dream of mine.........I am looking forward to joining the profession.

    Well, must go...........good luck to all my fellow hard and it will pay off.
