    Nurse 2004. I am in my third semester of nursing school and I must say nursing is very hard. It is not memorizing, it is application type questions. You take the material that you have learned and apply it toward a situation. If you are seeking a nursing profession don't let that frighten you, all things can be accomplish with prayer. Go for it!!

I feel proud to have been accepted. I know I will have to work hard, but I believe if I do I will be a competent, qualified RN. I wouldn't want it any other way.

    Keeping my eye on the Prize!

    yeah the prog im going into has a 97% pass rate. They seem real hardcore.

    thank you for the website. I have ordered the book already and I went to the library and got some more books that prepare you for NCLEX too. i started reading and I like it. It doesn't seem very hard. I was even thinking the otherr day that i need some books with tests, because I always learned a lot from them.
    When i got into A & P class all the students said is very hard, but personally i was amazed how easy was. I guess it depends of how good the teachers explain too.
    Well, thank you for your encouragements and advise.
