O.K. so I started my ADN to BSN course today. Actually it starts officially Monday, but there's a module to do before then.
All I can say is WOW! I'm overwhelmed by the amount of work they are expecting full time workers to do. Online chat sessions where we have to be ready with answers to questions, a quiz a week, reading 2 to 5 chapters a week, 500 page papers every week, responding to bulletin board postings (one of which has to be 200 words or more), a power point presentation, and one very large paper, on and on and on. Plus the last couple of weeks my the chemistry class overlaps.
I'm beginning to wonder what I got myself into! Wondering if it will be worth it and how working full time I'm going to do it. My life as I know it is over.
But I have to break it down to one thing at a time and just go with the flow and see how it goes. No one is holding a gun to my head making me do it. It's just the initial shock is a little overwhelming.
Kudos to everyone who is doing it or has done it! :hatparty:
O.K. now that's off my chest I feel better. LOL :hatparty:

OMG, yes, I think I would be overwhelmed too. It's more than likely that you will settle in once you find your groove.
Best of wishes to you, I am sure you will do fine. Don't forget we are here to cheer you on
