Don't give up on yourself. Nursing school is hard. If it was easy, then everyone could do it. I went back to school to become an RN at the age of35. It was not easy for me as an older student. When I started the program, I didn't even know how to take a blood pressure. No previous experience at all. I had to relearn how to study all over again. You have a lot going for you with your previous experiences. Nursing care plans
can be hard and time consuming at first. But,it will get better. One day it will just "CLICK" and all come together.
