Just finished pre-reqs... feeling sad???

  1. I just took my last final last night and now my pre-reqs are finished. And I feel sort of depressed, and don't know why. I should be celebrating, because I think I did pretty well!

    I guess it's because now I just have to wait and see what happens for the fall. I've applied to an accelerated program, but won't find out until mid-June if I got in. I'm also on a wait list for an ADN program that starts in 2008, and may possibly be called up this fall. I guess just not knowing is what, if anything, I will be doing this fall is making me anxious.

    Maybe it's because I really liked these classes, the professors, and (most) of my classmates.

    Maybe it's because I don't know what to do with myself when I'm NOT in school.

    Does anyone else feel sad when classes are over, or is it just me?

    I know how you feel. I got my early registration notice for the summer semester and I felt a little sad that I wouldn't be going to the same school anymore. I have been taking classes there on and off forever. I have really liked my classes and professors and the campus, I know how everything works and where everything is. It is always a little sad when we move on to the next chapter in our lives. I am lucky because I know where I will be going this fall so I have the excitement of that to make up for any sadness I feel about moving on. In your case you are still in limbo but you will feel much more excitement when you know you situation for the fall.

    I don't finish pre-req's until the 15th but I already feel really excited because the hardest part of the semester is finished!! I will be doing the happy dance that night for sure!!

    I know exactly how you feel. I think I feel that way because you get attached to the little group of people you're always with too. You have your micro group, or a&p group for so long, and you're working toward a set goal of getting your pre-reqs done. Once that is completed, you feel a little lost and wonder what's next. Getting into a program isn't as set as taking prerequisite classes. Anyone can register for those classes, nursing school is much more competitive and selective.

    Good luck with the application and getting in Keeps us posted

    I still have 3 more weeks to do but I think I know where your comming from I have antisipated this as well, I have been working so hard for so long and soon this phase will be over. I have to wait until next january before I even have a hope of starting so i kind of feel in limbo. Also I have made some wonderful friends who have traveled this course with me and I will be sad to leave them, so yes I think I too will be sad but happy too, but I know I'll be wondering what to do with my time haha.
