I have decided to apply to nursing school, and right now am studying to take the biology CLEP exam, since I somehow managed to graduate high school without taking bio.
Now, I know it's hard to cram a year's worth of information into a few months of self-study, but this is really making me have second thoughts about nursing school. It all seems so foreign, and so technical and detailed, that I feel like I'm just never going to remember all of this, never mind REALLY understand.....The studying is not the problem, I already have a BS (in computer science) so I'm not scared of school.
The questions I have are - what type of stuff do you learn in nursing school? Is it all memorization? How much of it do you actually use on a daily basis once you're working?
Also, did any of you have the same reaction when starting out and then got used to it?
I really, really want to do this, I'm just really scared off by the newness of it all....Any reassurance is welcome. :)
