I wanna congratulate you!! I, too, waited a long time to return to school and now am attending full time while working part time (it took me 18 months to finally not have to work full time while attending school!)
My best advice is to not read too much before you start school. You'll get lots of info from the syllabus you receive from each instructor. You may want to get familiar with medical terminology
, but again, I wouldn't get too far into it. Find a spot in your home where you can be by yourself and I totally agree with Nurse2BeSandy...read every night. When you think you have it down pat, read just a little more. Don't cram...you'll wipe yourself out and forget the easy stuff.
I found out the best way to do it is to get into a regular routine, read and study constantly but follow a set formula (being military, this should come easily to you!!)
Again, follow that dream...I am and I don't regret anything!!
