I'm also new to the board, and I just started my prereqs for a BSN program. Having fun with A&P I right now. I'll be having a whole lot more "fun" at my exam next Monday. I work full-time, have class three nights a week, and volunteer in the SICU at a local hospital one day a week. Somewhere in there I'm supposed to study!! ha!

I am totally amazed at how similar everyone's situation is to mine.
Last fall decided I wanted to be a nurse, entered college after 20 some years, worked and went to school, then this spring got laid off after 10 years of loyal service, still taking these blasted pre-req's, (will it ever be over?).
All the advice I can offer is take it one day at a time, one class at a time. It will get better (right? )
Don't forget to take care of yourself. Email or pm me if you ever want to talk or vent.
