I get so sick of school sometimes!!

Specializes in Adolescent Psych, PICU.

I am sure I am not the only one.

I was doing a rough estimate of what all classes I will be taking the next 3 semesters (BSN pre reqs) and it just about overwhelms me to see what all I have to do- I wonder if Im really smart enough!! Chemistry, Statistics, MORE algebra (I had to start with elementary algebra so I can take College Algebra), Microbiology, Zoology, Spanish 1 and 2 , etc and I just feel like throwing in the towel sometimes. But I really just want to get my BSN pre -reqs out of the way, I dont want to get my ADN and then half to go back and take all the BSN pre -reqs to get into the RN-BSN program while working (which is only 9 montsh here full time but its all the freakin pre reqs to get into that that suck! lol)

I wish I could meet someone who was actually hired part time out of nursing school- does that ever happen? If I *knew* for sure I could get hired part time right out of nursing school I would work part time and go to school for my BSN full time but I have yet to meet anyone who was hired part time right out of school (cause of length of oreintation and the hours that is, etc). I hear people saying that is what they "plan to do" but is that realistic? I need some input in that, I think Im gonna call some of the hospitals are here and see if they do that.

I am glad this semester is almost over. Im only taking 1 class this summer I decided so my brain wont fizzel out....lol

Just venting...lol Its late at night and I have a algebra and anatomy test next class! My brain is tired, I'm about cranial nerved out tonight.....lol

Marilyn,

Several people in my class are going to graduate in May and start their BSN in the fall. They have all been hired Part-time (One is doing a week-end option, 2 12h shifts) So, call around, someone will hire you. I'm sure of it.

I would have to agree with you regarding the part-time while doing the BSN. The local hospitals here do require an orientation for new grads, but if upfront with them, they are so willing to work with their schedules when they do go back. Out of last year's class, the grads who chose to go back to school for BSN only had to take the summer off from school, and either work part-time or full-time now. I also plan to do the BSN route after getting my ADN, but plan on waiting until next spring to enroll. I really want to start making some money so I can start paying off my bills.

Good luck on your test tomorrow. Cranial nerves are a pain...I just had a test on them today.

Arg...I know how you feel. I worked on BSN transfer requirements before I finally (this semester) got into the actual RN program. I can't wait til summer so I can take only 1 class (chem) and then I only need a few silly/fun/humanity classes to be finished with my tranfer stuff. And OH yeah, making it through the RN program..whew...I'm tired just thinking about it!

This worked for me:

I kept a complete list of the classes I had to take (zoology was NOT one of them) and as I completed it, it was marked through in red. It was kind of neat....showed that it was done and gave me a sense of accomplishment!!

I have done that too essarge, crossed off each course with a RED marker, it does give one a sense of accomplishment, that's for sure.

Marilyn, hang in there:)

I know I can do it! Thanks for the encouragement and marking through those classes with a red marker is a good idea actually- shows me what all I have accomplished.

I just had a mentally tiring day yesterday and I guess it was all getting to me, I feel much better today now that the weekend is hear. I love science classes but I am scared to death of Statistics and Chemistry which I will take next semester!!

Thanks again for the reassurance, I really appreciate it.

Statistics was one of the classes that I least liked. It became a mental "I have to do it" class, but after the first exam, it wasn't so bad. Chemistry was kind of interesting to me....gave me the "why's" of things working a certain way and when it came to pharm, I could almost picture it in my head.

Good luck...it will be well worth it in the end!!

Marilyn,

I'm taking stats right now, if the same teacher I have is teaching it next semester you should definitely take her class. She makes it so easy and simplifies it so much. Have you enrolled for it yet?
