Okay guys I am having a little nervous breakdown,lol......

  1. Hubby had his foot operated on this morning so I have him to take care of for the next few weeks on top of school. 1st week only out of bed to go potty....2nd 15 minutes at a time.....3rd 45 at a time. Little stressed there especially with A and P 2.....and heres my major stressor.. I have to take the preadmission NLN test Saturday morning. If I don't pass I can't even apply for the nursing program at my school......it's really worrying me. I have been told it is so hard and I am just really freaked out. Hubby will be home alone for 5 hours and that worries me.....found someone to watch kids while I take it, but.....you guys know how it is......anyway I just needed to vent and knew some of you would understand how I feel....thanks for listening.

    Robin, take a nice deep breath, and as you blow it out, release some of that anxiety and just RELAX, honey! You will do fine! I'm not in your situation, nor do I know about your hubby's foot, but I do know I've been reading your posts here for quite a while and you aren't an air head! You have kids-- it takes brains to raise them right! Yor hubby CAN be alone for 5 hours-- just give him a urinal, a quart of water, the phone and the remote and he won't hardly miss you! You GOT the kids taken care of, and he IS an adult and know how to call someone for help. You ARE taking the exam on a Saturday, and if he's like most men; they put a game on and forget the rest of the world.

    As far as that exam, you aren't some starry-eyed kid right out of high school who has visions of becoming a nurse to meet a young, handsome, rich doctor and live "happily ever after"-- and even many of those kids PASS that exam. So whoever told you it was hard was trying to scare you!

    Heck, you've been hanging around here for months and by the power of osmosis, you have learned lots of nursey stuff that most of the others taking the exam have never heard of. Just keep your head on straight and don't panic!

    I'll keep you in my prayers, too for good measure. Remember, just answer one question at a time and do one thing at a time and you will come through this just fine. {{{{{Robin}}}}}
