    I too have week 1 under my belt...whew!! I certainly feel all your pain!! I got a 12 of 12 on my vital sign check off so that is a good thing. I agree with the earlier poster, I was way too nervous, it wasn't that bad at all. The thing that is freaking me out is all the reading. I can only do it for about 2 hours tops and then the ole brain is out of commission for a while. Going to be a loooong 2 years I think! Hang in there everyone, I have been told by one of the nurses at work that the first paycheck as an RN will be worth it!! Let's hope so....

    Aimee, hang in there you will do just fine. Although I started my last semester last week seemed very long because we are doing a LOT of stuff and a LOT of it is boring stuff that seems repetitive because it seems like we already been there, done that with some of the topics. The first week is usually always the longest and hardest for everyone no matter what semester they are in but hang in there you will do fine.
