Yikes! School starts next Tuesday!

  1. I'm starting my nursing classes Tuesday and I'm so nervous. I mean I've been around medical stuff all my life (my mom's a nurse) and I think I even know quite a bit already. The other day I was visiting a friend studying to be an LPN, and her books are SOOO fascinating... I mean I can't wait but still I hope everything will go smoothly!! Geeeez...

    Any words of encouragement??

    Hey Ada,
    Congrats on starting. Why are you nervous? I start Monday BSN and can't wait. But I can honestly say-I'm not one bit scared. I'm ready to tear it up and graduate. Girl, we've come this far so I believe the next 5 semesters are going to be soo interesting, it will just encourage us to do well..... Don't be scared be confident,.,....I;m sure we'll do just fine

    Personally, I haven't started and already want to graduate..... We'll be there someday. take care and congrats to fellow nursing students/

    Don't be nervous! Hehehe - I know that is easier said than done - but just tell yourself you can do it!

    Also - on the first day if they do give you a big packet (seems to be fairly normal to) - Just remember that it isn't all due tomorrow! It is the whole semesters worth of stuff. You have time to do it!

    HI: I wasn't too worried till I reviewed my new books and packets, going to be a tough one I think. sounds like boot camp to me. Is this your first semester Ada? Do you have any friends at the school? Good luck, we are all in the same boat!

    ...I studied business for a year but realised early enough (luckily!) that nursing is for me! I just let my mom discourage me. All she ever did while young was tell not to get into nursing because of the crappy hours and low pay (the pay in Finland is about 2/3 of the one in US).

    I have one girl I know who's coming to the school... but no real friends! Hope I'll make some.
