Hello all, I am currently in the LPN program and I’m only on the 3rd day but I am freaking out !! I have ZERO health care background or history not to mention I have no medical terminology knowledge or medical work background either.
I feel like I am overwhelmed already.
Does any one have any tips or advice because I’m already rethinking school?
I’m a single mom and I’ve been out of school for about 2 years and just getting back into the groove of that is challenging all on its own. I actually cried the first day because this is all so new to me.
Most people who enter the program have some type of health care history like being a CNA or something. I also forgot all my A&P since it’s been 2 and half years since I’ve taken it. Even just reading the fundamentals of nursing is challenging because there’s a lot of nursing terminology that I’m just dumb founded by.
If anyone can send some positive advice I would greatly appreciate it.
I’m probably just overthinking everything but I just feel like already I’m having a hard time grasping what the heck is going on when my instructors are talking. Especially about the nursing assessments and such. Thanks !!
