Hi! I'm from the Philadelphia/South Jersey area and I'm brand new as of today to this board.
Here's my story: I am 33 years old, happily married with a 2 year old beautiful little girl and I just started taking my prequisites (A&P I for now) in the hopes of getting into nursing school either this January or next year. I am very lucky in that I have worked and continue to work as an administrative assistant in a major hospital in Philadelphia that is paying for 100% of my tuition, but already I'm starting to have doubts about going to nursing school.
The problem is that I am extremely nervous about starting school since I've been out of school for such a long time and I'm already overwhelmed with just this one class that I'm taking now, which again is A&P I. I'm already starting to have doubts as to whether I can do this or not
. Is this normal? Should I be feeling this way already? Don't get me wrong b/c I really am excited about becoming a nurse, but why am I doubting myself so much??????
