I recently got accepted into an accelerated BSN program that is 17 months long. I begin in August of this year, so I want to get as prepared as I can before the program starts. I am constantly reading articles on here from current nurses, nursing students, etc. and I already feel overwhelmed. I am actually terrified! Everyone I know just tells me how hard it is going to be, how I won't have a life, etc. and I expect that. However, while reading some of the posts on here, I think "What does that even mean? How am I possibly going to learn all of this stuff in such a short amount of time?! Am I actually smart enough to do this?!". I may be overthinking, but if anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated!
