My fears, before starting nursing school;
1.Difficulty in passing theory, labs, clinicals
2.Having mean instructor who will try to fail me.
3. Failling nursing school and looking stupid at front of all the people I know.
4. Unexpected dramas that might lead to me leaving the nursing school
(such as disease etc..._)
5. Unsuffiecient funds...money related problems.
This is my list, Im sure if I thought about it hard I would find more...
I dont think I would worry too much about having instructors that will try to fail you. They have to know that too much of that looks bad for the program. If you are giving it all you have to give, then I am sure you will pass.
I am glad to know that the instructors at our school take a lot of pride in knowing the pass rate is extremely high as far as the NCLEX in the program at our school. They have already made it perfectly clear, that if passing means as much to us as it does to them, we will pass. It has not been an easy week by any means, and we have two exams next Monday, but the way they cover things and take time to answer questions means they have interest in us.
I made a 100 on both quizzes this last week, so I am very encouraged. I know the stress will get better after we work out the best way to study and retain it all because the reading material is unbelievable. I have been physically, emotionally, and mentally exhausted at night. One good thing, my appetite has decreased sooooo much, lol. I dont think about eating. Maybe I will LOSE
some weight from it all. I have lost 3 pounds since Monday. :spin: Now, if I can just find time to get my walking started again.
It is very different from the pre-requisites!!!!!
