or did ur prior Rn degree, ICU experience and BSN help you to understand a little better what was being taught. In your opinion, what classes did you experience prior to NA school that helped you to understand a term when it was mentioned by the professor. I haven't started RN school yet but I'm afraid that when I finalyy reach NA school that I won't know what they are talking about. Will that fear lessen once I move up in my education and experience since by then I'll be more familiar with things?
Take it one step at a time. By the time you take prereqs, go to nursing school, gain valuable nursing experience in critical care, it all comes together. Do not overwhelm yourself worrying about how you will handle something that you are years away from being able to do. Relax, concentrate on the here and now, and focus on what you need to do to reach your goals.
THANK YOU MUCH FOR REPLY, I WILL NOW RELAX. BY THE WAY WHAT SCHOOL DO U GO TO AND HOW ARE YOU DOING? GOOD LUCK
I agree. You must take things day by day in nursing school or if you are realy good maybe even week by week, or test by test. Whatever works best for you without completly stressing you out. When I started nursing school I had no idea what a foley catheter was and other students were asking "when do we get to learn how to put in catheter?" At first I was a little nervous. I started nursing school just 3 days after my high school graduation and I knew NOTHING. As the semesters flew by (and they will) I learned that I was not at a disadvantage, and I graduated LVN then RN school and I now work in a neuro/trauma ICU and I love it. Most of the things I have learned have been by doing the things that I read in the books, not just reading them (although that in necessary to pass). I do still have my Med-Surg. book though because I am able to gain a better understanding of some of the things I see at work if I go back and read about them once I have seen/done it. So remember to take things as they come. Always stop to ask questions when in doubt
