hi everyone!! I am going back to school and majoring in Nursing (RN) and i cannot explain the happiness & joy i am feeling!! I literally jumped up & down when i found out i got accepted for a loan to go back to school. I want to be a pediatric nurse, but I do need a few pointers. First of all, one thing i am a little weary off, is handling death. Its going to be a struggle for me to leave my emotions at work and not let that effect my own family. So, does anyone have any tips they could give me on how to overcome that? I've worked in Accounting before and found that I got depressed because I felt I wasnt achieving anything or giving back to the community in any way. I want to make a difference in peoples lives. I am very ready to give nursing school my all and am more than willing to work hard to get there, but i also am a little scared of nursing school. I know I want to do this, but I keep second guessing myself wondering if I am making the right decision. Is this normal for nursing students to experience? If you have any other suggestions or advice for a newcomer to the nursing profession, feel free to let me know!! Thanks!
