Hello to All!!!!!!!!!

  1. I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Jannette. I have been lurking around for a few days now. I finally decided to register. :spin:

    I currently attend CCRI in Rhode Island. I have 2 classes left (pre-req's) then im done. Then all i have to do is wait to be called from the waiting list. I got put on the WL 12/06.

    I feel so proud of myself!! I have been in different schools before to only drop out of them. This time it has been different. I've been in school since 9/05 and have maintained a 4.0 GPA !!!!!!!!!

    It was back in 04 when i lived in NY that I discovered that I wanted to be a nurse. I attended an allied health school in 03 to be a medical assistant and phlebotomist. As i worked in the hospital, I started seeing it,....that is, ....my dream of being a nurse. I remember when I discovered the passion for nursing. I didn't move on it because I would think to myself,...."uggg,....school,...with my daughter,...work,....blah, blah...."

    So i decided to move to RI 6/05 where my grandma lives. We rent from her and the cost of living is WAY less than NY. Thank god my husband found a job working with Waste Management as a driver and his salary is enough to support his family. That is when I took advantage and said, "Im going back to school!" And so I have been. I have stuck it through and Im very proud of myself for getting to where I am at, especially with a 4.0 GPA...

    Can I say, Im a little scared. I know that once i do clinicals and through the experience, I will be an excellent nurse. Is it normal to feel a little scared of the unexpected?? I mean things like med. errors, not being able to keep up, the stress...???? Has anyone felt this way while in school before being an actual nurse??:uhoh21:

    Geez,....I cant wait to look back once im a nurse and say, "hey, I remember being scared and nervous."

    Also, what about the NCLEX exam??:uhoh21: Im also scared of it too....

    TAKING A BREATHER AND SAYING TO MYSELF, " It will be okay Janet, don't worry yourself,...you'll be fine.."

    Okay,..thanks for allowing me to introduce myself!!!!!!! :spin:

    Don't stress about the Nclex now, it will come easier as you complete your courses, to put your mind at ease see if your progam tells the board pass rate for the graduate nurses...If your grades stay high the test should be a cakewalk! Good Luck and Congrats
