    I believe that for me, FEELING like a nurse is the hardest thing!

    It's about the culture.

    I just started 2nd semester of the ADN program. So far I would say the most challenging aspect of NS is time management. The content in the fundamentals was not "hard", but all of the reading and TONS of info, the clinical paperwork and careplans everyweek, and just keeping up with when things are due and studying for tests....it's time consuming. And if you have a job, kids, a husband, meals to prepare and a house to clean sometimes it can be a bit too much. BUT it's still doable and will be so worth it when it's all overwith and you are an RN. Good luck!!

    Also stress can be a killer, so try to build in some stress relief outlets into your routine. Otherwise you'll end up like me at the end of last semester suffering from panic attacks for no reason.
    Wow. I also suffered from panic attacks at the end of last semester. I thought I had heart problems because I was seriously having heart palpitations and difficulty breathing randomly, maybe once a week. So I went to the doctor, he told me I was having panic attacks. I didn't know panic attacks could occur without warning, just laying on the couch reading for instance. But I guess because a majority of the time I was stressing, my body was kickin' into overdrive.
