    Am I smart enough? I'mscared

    I feel the same way I have wanted to become a nurse since I was in high school but like you said life got in the way I am 34 married with two kids and I am starting my rn pre-reques this fall YEAH!!!!!!! I was always afraid to start nursing school because I thought I was not that smart I never did that well on tests or in school-in high school but when I started my MA program and took classes recently at my CC I did great and I never failed a test and thats because I wanted to become a nurse so bad I applied myself more then ever and study like crazy and it felt amazing to do as well as I did so dont worry with hard work and dedication you'll do great:w00t: if becoming a nurse what you want you will do great I wish you lots of luck and let me know how it goes.

But do what I do dont give up just go one step at a time go for your dream I am. You can do it:yeah:My friend told me that most hospitals where I live want the RNs to have their BSN degrees but I am going for my ADN if I can achieve that I would be so happy, excited, and thrilled:eek: if the hospital wants me to have my BSN then they can help me pay for it!!!!!! I hope I have help in some way believe me I know exactly what your going through keep your head up ok let me know how it goes.
