Hi Linda, I truly know how you feel!! I completed LPN school 8 years ago but I remember the fear, stress, unsureness, terror, fatigue, incompetency you're probably feeling at this time. :chair: Kudos for getting into a study group-this is totally what helped me. I studied with a group of "older"students such as myself who were totally focused and didn't have time to waste and of course studying whenever and wherever I could alone.
You probaly think you'll never "get it", that it won't get easier-you will and it does. For me-I'm a visual and physical learner-I have to see and do things; so hands-on works for me. I'm still getting those "AHA" moments-I read things in my nursing magazines or do things on my job and I GET IT!! Practicing with family and friends is a great idea. Take it one day at a time!!!! Wishing you all the best!!!:hug:
