Why am I so afraid of school? I am really intimidated for some reason...I keep thinking that I won't have what it takes to make it.
I had a 3.23 GPA in undergrad...I took 3 semesters of BIO I got an A..B and B+....I got a C in chemistry though
Since it has been more than 5 years since I took my science courses I have to repeat them. I am registering for chemistry and I am so scared.
Is anyone else afraid?
I graduated with a B.A in communications in 2003 and I have had 3 jobs in three separate fields since then. I have been a 5th grade teacher, corporate secretary and now I am an admissions assistant. None of these jobs or fields have brought me any satisfaction.
I was a CNA when I was in college and I admit there were certain aspects of the job that I didn't like...the backbreaking labor (in LTC it's every CNA for themselves and as a result it IS backbreaking...the hospital was much better)...shoddy treatment from the nurses who didn't respect a nobody CNA...etc.
Those things aside I really miss the hospital enviorment. I worked at a large hospital as a floater and I had the chance to work in almost every department. From Peds to POCU...I even worked in a locked jail ward!
Of course I don't really really know what nursing is all about because I was a CNA but I have a good idea that for all it's pain in the butt issues nursing is for me.
Originally I figured that I could do a 10 month LPN program and move from there to an Associates in nursing. But then I found out that it would take the identical amount of time for me to get a BSN so why reach for anything less than the gold star right?
I am going to register at a local CC to do my pre-requisites and if all goes well...I can expect to be in a BSN program by Spring 2006.
But i'm feeling so nervous...what is wrong with me?

Well guess what? I started out only wanting to dip my toe in the water and now I am going to be jumping in with both feet!
I only wanted to register for the chemistry and my cousin works in an office at the college. I had to ask her to have a friend pull some strings and an get her friend at the registrar to do an over ride because of course the sat course I wanted was filled up.
Well, she asked me why I wasn't going to do the A & P1 and I told her that I couldn't because I needed to take Chemistry first. Well, she went to the deprtment chair and explained that I was a 2nd degree student and that I already had 12 general bio and 4 gen chem credits and a B.A and the chair let me in!
Then she had a her friend do an over ride so that I could get into the sunday a&P 1 class!
This will save me at least a semester of school!
I have decided that I am not going to be scared...I can do it I just have to apply myself.
Thanks again for the support...to think at the beginning of this week I was just hoping to be accepted into the LPN program if I was lucky and now I am on my was to my BSN.
If you're goind to a thing might as well go full tilt...besides it would take 10 months to do the lpn and then 2 years to do an A.S. Might as well spend the 3 years getting my bsn.
