i just found out about two weeks ago that i have been accepted to my colleges nursing program. i have worked as a na before but that is my full extent of healthcare experiances. after waiting so long for the acceptance process and finally finding out that i was accepted i think i have literally walked on air for the last two weeks.
that is until today when the realization struck me that come january when classes start my whole world is going to turn upside down and do cartwheels several times a day.
i am suddenly scared to death!!!! i am now asking myself what i was thinking when i decided i wanted to become a nurse. i think it is a lot of doubt just because i am scared that i will not know what i am doing and fear of not being able to soak up all of the info. that will be thrown at me all at once. i also am afraid that once i start i will not be able to make the grade or will somehow survive to graduaution and still come out clueless. these are human lives that will be in my hands and what if i do not react quick enough? this is why i have joined this site with hopes that some of you experienced nurses will be able to calm my nerves with some helpful advice on how to make it through what is going to be the most difficult 2 years of my life!!! so please send anything, i am begging!!!!
