Hi everyone. I am a first year ADN student starting my 2nd week. Did everyone feel overwhelmed? The rest of my classmates are feeling pretty much the same. I decided to return back to school for another degree after PPS came about and I was one of the therapists along with thousands across the country that were laid off. I have a two year degree in OT.
Good luck to all. Hope we can help eachother here

You are right, it's absolutely overwhelming at first. After you get into your groove, it will get a little better for you. I had never worked in healthcare when I started my ADN program. It was all totally NEW to me!! Talk about a culture shock.
Two years may seem like a long time now......when you graduate you'll be asking yourself "where did all the time go????"
Just remember to have fun and be a real person sometimes. My fiance taught me that I can't have my head in the books all the time....you have to live a little too.
