I have been going to my college for about 2 years now. I now only have 2 classes left to take before entering the Nursing Program.
Here's my problem. I am afraid I won't get into the Nursing Program!!!
I had my daughter last Fall and in the winter, I went in to sign up for the pre-entrance exam for Fall 2006 and found out that the last test they were offering was the next day (they changed the cut-off date from March to January). So, I took the entrance exam with basically no studying and I got around a 70% combined (can't remember exactly).
Needless to say, I was very disappointed in myself for not knowing they changed the day (although I had other things going on) and for not pulling it off in the end.
Now I am getting ready to take the test again for Fall 2007. I am so afraid I will not get a high enough score to get into the program and then what will I do? The problem is they only offer the evening classes in the Fall of each semester. Day classes are offered in both Spring and Fall. But I work full-time and have to go in the evening, so it forces me to wait another year before I can even think about going again. I won't have any other classes other than the Nursing classes left to take. Not to mention that I just want to move forward with my career, but I feel stuck right now!
I am afraid of the entire test...the vocabulary had words that I would never ever use in a normal conversation. Science asks questions that I just don't have a clue and math, I did ok on that but I am afraid that I won't remember this time around how to solve it!!
I do have the books to study from, but just fear that is not enough. I don't know what else to do! I guess all I can do is hope and pray that my brain is functioning that day and I do study what I have as much as I can and pull off some sort of miracle!!
Thanks for listening!
