I keep hearing how hard school is, that it is "the hardest thing I've ever done." I can appreciate that, and I'm sure it's really, really tough. However, I can't help but think, you guys sound really intelligent (the majority, anyway), so if it is that tough for you, how do-able is it? I have accomplished everything I've set out for, stood out as the "go to" nurse in the unit, certifications, went back and got my BSN. But I have to really work hard for my As. I mean, for my BSN program, all I've done is school work and nurse work. I've done really well but it take so much time. Self doubt sneaking in? Yes, probably. Anyway, before put my money where my mouth is, can the average, non-genius, yet determined and devoted person do this?
