Too Long In The Biz

I am sixty-one years old.I have an Associates Degree in Nursing and graduated in 1978 from a Nursing school in Florida. I am about to start my four 13 week contract at a very large hospital in NYC.

And I am suddenly scared to death that I may not be able to function and do not want to start this contract. Actually I want to walk away from Nursing completely.
This is my back story. I have been a staff nurse on a med-surg floor, worked in a mixed ICU, been the charge nurse for that ICU, worked in open heart, managed that open heart unit,worked PACU, pain treatment and before traveling,starting 2012 worked as charge nurse in a busy open heart unit.
Now I am too scared to start another contract--what happened?
