Spring 2012 NP Students - Support group

  1. I start back at school in January 2012 and I am so scared to death, I have not been in school fulltime since 2003 when I left nursing school. My very good friend tells me its a sign to back off graduate studies, she believes at age 38 I should be having fun and enjoying my 3 boys. And now I am beginning to have second thoughts. Any words from anyone? I have always wanted to go to graduate school because I love studying and advancing myself, we both grew up in a society where girls we not "allowed" to go to school. Should I listen to her?

    if it's something you have always wanted to do...Go for it!! Grad school causes fear in many people even if they are attending directly after undergrad. I am also starting this spring (haven't decided which school yet) but I would encourage you to not back out of your decision unless you think it's not right for you...don't listen to anyone else you are the one that has to live with your decision whichever direction you choose.

    Thank you so much for your encouraging words. Fear or not I will have to face it.
