    Hi all,

    I have a place to start adult nursing diploma in Septemeber and I am so worried that the course will be too hard for me.

    I finished college in '05.
    I have some Alevels i.e. Psychology , Sociology and ICT. But in the way of science I only have an E at AS level in Chemistry and the standard BB in GCSE Science.

    I am revising as much anatomy as I can right now from the ross and wilson and my dad just bought me the royal marsden mini guide for nurses.

    My main concern is I wont know enough to get through the first year and as I've been out of education for so long I don't know if I will be able to handle the course. Any one have any tips on what I should read up on before I start?

    I'm sure if you have managed to do other A levels you will be ok! Also, if you're very interested in the subject then I think it's much easier to learn I think!

    And you have from now until September so try and do a bit of learning of Anatomy & physiology each day!

    I honestly would not worry at all, the CFP year makes sure everyone is up to date

    between now and when you start, just enjoy not being a student nurse - don't get yourself worked up!
