My BSN program incorporates prereq's and nursing classes all at once. So I'm taking some prereq's plus my first nursing class this semester!!!
I am also taking A&PI this sem, so if you need a study buddy feel free to Email or IM me (firstname.lastname@example.org or ItalianYogaChick).
Anyway, I've also suffered thru a period of self doubt. I currently work at our local hospital as a unit sec up on our med/surg unit and one of our patients was detoxing and became enraged and started physically abusing one of our nurses. I thought "what the hell am I getting into?" That was my first self doubt. Then of course, after seeing what all our nurses do, I thought "What if I can't do it???" But then that's what we go to school for, eh?
I don't have any problems handling blood and gore...... fluids don't gross me out. The only thing that really gets to me is smells. I can't handle smells. They make me weak, they nauseate me...... hehe. (Do they make scented masks by the way, does anyone know???) ;-)
Anyway, good luck in your program, contact me anytime!!
