I agree with Brandy, you'll be amazed at yourself the next couple of years. Before you're a nurse or doing much clinical work, it all seems kind of scarey. When situations happen, it not only is a clinical duty, but it all works out. Many times I have cried with patients, and families, and that's OK. If you never had any emotions, you wouldn't make a very good nurse. I worked in hospice, and it was my favorite nursing job, but before I started, I wondered if I could handle it. I not only handled it, I loved that job! You will experience many things in nursing school. My experience was excellent! I made a tight group of friends, and we shared our accomplishments, and struggles, and I had some excellent instructors, who's caring, patient, funny ways made everything always OK. Don't worry about the new experiences you will face, you will find rewards in this profession that are hard to find anywhere else. All will be GREAT!
