Rob my friend, you and I are the same. I had one school that I focused on to get into when I was doing my prereqs and after getting all A's on my courses, I applied to the school and got in! It was a 1 year LVN to RN program so I knew it was going to be tough. First day, there was so much info and paperwork and homework given, I immediately felt like giving up. I eventually did BUT it was because I shouldn't have done the 1 year course. I got accepted into another program and am starting next month. No holding back, taking it a week or even a day at a time. That is the best way to get through it. Also, study hard and enjoy it. In the end it will all be worth it. Good luck Brah!
