So I'm starting a first quater of BSN program...

  1. I'm starting my first quater of BSN program on Thursday and I feel completely freaked out. I've been reading so many different things about nursing program on this site. I haven't stoppped reading them for a full week. And I have to tell you some of them make me to doubt my self and shake my self-confidence up. I know it will be busy in school, but it id only 1 class and a lab. Is it really that impossibly hard? I have never worked as a nurse, I have some experience in physical therapy, but never worked in a hospital. I'm a good student, but things don't come easy to me. I don't have a photographic memory like some peolple do. I'm a visual learner and I have 4 years degree in health related field. I just have to come down and stop freaking out. I want to make it work!!!

    My coworker is an LVN who, currently, is taking her first semester of a BSN program at a regional state university and she states it has been quite easy. Don't allow fear and fright to cloud your judgment. You can accomplish this extraordinary feat if you apply your mind fully.

    Yes, don't let what you've read here about nursing school freak you out. Yes it's hard, yes it's a lot of work, but look at how many people are on this board that are still in nursing school! It's all about how much you put into it, and how much your heart is set on becoming a nurse. If you have the determination, you'll make it through nursing school.

    Best of luck, and congrats on starting your BSN program!

    i start back on thursday too! but am in the second year of a BSN. we had only one lecture and nursing clinical our first quarter. it wasn't bad, the first half of the quarter was spent in the clinical lab learning how to do everything before we started at the hospital. and being scared is good, it keeps you on your toes. you'll do fine. i was terrified when i started, and i still get super anxious each quarter going to a new hospital and learning the material. it is a steep learning curve because it is a different way of thinking.

    you'll be fine, all you need is the drive to get the work done. where do you go?
