Tomorrow morning at 8:30 a.m. I will be starting orientation at Mass. College of Pharm for my 16-month accelerated BSN program.... I am so nervous, you guys! Please, any kind words, or advice you could think up---post it here!
I guess I should just get over my nervousness because I'll bet everyone in the program (38 students total this year) is just as nervous. I have the schedule for tomorrow and everything, so at least I'm not totally in the dark about what'll be going on. I'm just really shy around new people and it's hard for me to make friends. With only 38 people in the class, I'm afraid everyone might already know each other, or something.
I'm 22, but tonight I feel like I'm going to the first day of 2nd grade or something. I am such a baby.
I already have my books (ouch!, expensive), my tuition is paid (ouch!, expensive), and I have registered for classes, but I don't know anything about my professors, my classmates, the uniforms we'll be required to wear, etc. *sigh*
My schedule is pretty crazy. I have patho/pharm (6 credits) Tu/Th 8:30-12, skills class (4 credits) Wed 9-12, nursing history (3 credits) Fri 9-3:30 (but this one's only for the 1st seven weeks), and a skills lab (1 credit) Monday 12:30-3:30. After spring break, I'll have nursing essentials (3 credits) on Fridays... So that's a total of 17 credits this semester, I think.
Well, guys, thanks in advance for any kind words. I'll definitely post more tomorrow to let you know how my orientation went.
