New Nursing student

  1. Hi all, I am a 1st qtr nursing student. I have been married for 12 yrs and have two kids. So far, so good. I am just hoping to get through school w/o pulling all my hair out. LOL. Any tips to keeping stress levels down ?? I am looking forward to our first full clinical day on the unit (Weds.).

    Welcome to the site! I have to hand it to you, tackling school with a family. I have a dog and I think that's a lot of responsibility.

    :mortarboard: I started nursing school when I was also 33 and I'm now 36 and DONE! I just passed my NCLEX last week and I'm working in a critical care unit that I love.
    I have 4 kids and while school was stressful, it was also a lot of fun and I've made friends I will have for life. I'm sure you will do great and enjoy it! It will go by so fast.
    Best of Luck!
