    Who else is stressed out? Anyone offer advice?

    I don’t mean to depress you but, I’m in my second semester and it only gets more difficult. It’s good you are doing well in your foundations classes because each semester builds on your established foundations. But I think you should take time to stop and look at the pros and cons of nursing. If the pros our way the cons keep at it! Nursing school is notorious for being stressful, but if this is what you really want then fight for it! You got this If you hated clinical and are doing awful in lecture that’s different. But it sounds like you’re doing just fine. Some things that helped me is to have a study group of no more than 4 people and do A TON of practice nclex questions. Also, don’t forget to eat right and EXERCISE. I know it may be hard to find time, but it really helps with stress and mental health.
  2. Normally, I enjoy just reading what people post, but I need to vent.... When I graduated high school I decided to pursue nursing. I got rejected from RN programs a total of five times. I wanted to achieve my goal and move on with my life, so I applied to and got accepted into a vocational nursing program. Yes, the first semester and a half was stressful, but I was doing well and I really enjoyed it. This semester has been a real struggle though. I went from getting A’s and B’s on tests to barely passing. Plus, I’m trying to fight burnout, and the responsibility of caring for people’s lives isn’t making me feel good anymore; it’s overwhelming me! I’m so scared of accidentally making a mistake doing more harm than good for my patients. Every time I get something wrong or make a mistake I tell everyone I’m fine and try to look like I’m put together, but inside I’m tearing myself to shreds for making dumb mistakes on tests etc. long story short I’m not enjoying theory or clinical like I use to. This month has felt like one long anxiety attack. I’ve worked for 4 years to get into a program only to want to give up?! I can’t stand it!! We are starting our peds and ob rotation and after we have one semester left. I want to persevere hoping it will get better, but doesn’t look like it will. I hate the idea of being a quitter. I want to continue to fight, but I need energy. Do you think this is a phase? Has anyone else felt this way? If so, did you stick with nursing and regret it? sorry for the long post

    yeah they aren't offering VN220 until spring. However, if you have completed pharmacology, bio 60(which can be substituted for anatomy and physiology), English, reading, math, and are currently a CNA you can apply.

    Is this fake or a joke? I didn't receive anything yet. Don't toy with pre-nursing students emotions.

    I remember you from last app. period Erl09. I really really hope you get in this time. This is my 5th time applying to an RN program. I'm doing LVN if I don't get accepted this time and do a LVN to RN bridge.

    I don't think that they will send out these letters until the 16th because that would be mid May, but I really wouldn't be surprised if they sent out letters the last week of May.

    I remember last semester harbor's website mentioned that their nursing program ranked number five in California. This semester I think it went down to #6, but that's still not bad.

    I liked the school a lot. The professors I had were very knowledgeable and helpful, especially the microbiology professor, she was fabulous! The professors always took the time to explain the answers to any questions I had. But I've also heard that other professors weren't as good. I have heard from my friends who attended both LBCC and Harbor for science classes that Harbor College was a little less intense and easier to digest compare to the professors at Long Beach city college. i hope this answered your question.

    Wow! Mid May!? That is so frustrating! You're right I got my denial letter from Long Beach in a little less than 6 weeks and they said that they had 400 applicants. Harbor is too slow.

    Nope! I'm sure this forum would be blowing up if they sent out letters.

    It seems like they usually send emails out after 4 pm so check your emails in the evenings.
