Stressed out Nursing Student need reassurance


So right now I am working 24 hours a week as a CNA while going to nursing school. On top of this I am apart of a nursing student association which requires so many community service events a semester and recent joined one of those national leadership societies which requires 3 speaker broadcast, 3 team meetings, community service, and a couple other things to be inducted. Well I feel very very defeated. I feel like I just want to quit my job to give me more time and for some reason that scares me because it makes me feel like I will be a failure and want to quit when I finally become a nurse. Really I am just looking for reassurance that working as a nurse without school work and clubs will be okay?!

I'm done with my first month of nursing school out of thirty. Chill out.

The reason anyone can see your stress is because you stretch yourself too thin.

You don't need to be part of the association which demands you spend your time doing this or that. Dump that and you will feel better overall.

As for reassurance, that's all you. We can't live your life for you. Just my 2 cents.
