1. So tomorrow I have to go and get my fingerprint done at my school for the background check. I also have to go to the doctor and get my last test done for my health assessment, the TB skin test. My blood work and urine all came back clean...Yay!! LOL. Later in July, we have a boot camp and cpr & first aid class that we are required to attend. Any who, the reason I wrote this post is because as the title states I am really nervous about beginning nursing school. I have some people say that its not that bad but it is time consuming but others say that it's the hardest thing they have ever done. With such a broad perspective, it's hard to determine how I will do. I have always did well in school but I just don't want to go into nursing school and flunk out because as all of us have, we work very hard to get here. I am reading the book "You are smarter than you think", because it is required and I'm hoping its helpful! Well, that's my nervous rant!! I'm I alone with my feelings or do anyone have any personal success stories to share!?!

    You can survive! It IS hard, but put in the time and you'll be fine. It's a lot of jumping through hoops and busy work, nothing you can't do! Good luck!

    I am starting in August too and will read the book you suggested. My road is like yours and I am so scared of failing. Everyone says I can do it, I just needed to have confidence and relax because I know the material. I am like you getting all vaccinations, tests, and physicals done. CPR was easy, have fun with it. Hope to chat soon and wish you success!!!
