Well i'm not a certified CNA, but i have been a tech on a telemetry med surg floor for almost 2 years now. In january I will be starting nursing 1. I was jsut wondering if i will be struggling or if working in a hospital setting really helps since nursing 1 is all basic stuff. I work 12 hour nights and the nurses are really good about explaining things to me, and taking a hands on approach to a lot, so i have learned a lot in the time i've spent on the floor. Also i'm in the eavning program at school, so I'm hoping it will be less stressfull, fewer doctors and visitors.... I've wanted to be a nurse since i was in high school, but my study habits aren't the best. I know i need to do my reading before class so as not get behind, and i've already done practice NCLEX tests to get me aquainted with the format of test questions. I'm so excited to start in a few weeks, but so nervouse that i won't do well! anyone else in the same boat?
