I'm just feeling sick, scared, & stressed.

I have a few pre-reqs I need to take before I transition from LPN to RN. It's been a few years since I was in school. I just feel sick to my stomach, scared to fail, and stressed about what's going to happen and if I can do this. I'm full time with school (most online) and working full time (I'm the breadwinner so I have to keep working). My husband keeps telling me I can do this, but I'm just so darn nervous. :barf02: UGH I hate feeling like this. It makes no sense. I'm not worried about the nursing classes themselves, but so worried about these darn pre-reqs. I hope everyone's first day goes well. Good luck to us all!

I think you'll feel a little better once you get into the classes and into a routine. Sometimes I get panicked when I look at everything I have to do as a whole; but when I look at each thing individually and create a step by step plan/schedule, I feel better. As a nurse once told me, "It will get done because it has to." You will find a way. Good luck to you!

Thank you Purple-Roses. Like I said I know it's silly, but I have those darn butterflies going crazy in my stomach.

I'm the exact same way I keep chickening out because I'm scared to death of the Anatomy & Physiology, Chemistry, and Microbiology. The A&P shouldn't be too bad but there's so many details to memorize and know. You can do it though you will do just fine. Good luck! :)

I was in your shoes in May! I had been out of school for four years and felt a bit rusty. I told myself I would do my best even with work getting hectic. I studied when I got all my work done and carved time out. I have a 4.0 through a Math and Chemistry. You've got to believe in yourself... You're more able to do this than you think you are. Honest.

Just jumped back in after 12 years out of school. I think once you manage to do well and prove to yourself it is possible, you will be able to relax a little. Good luck!!
