I'm new to this board, and I need advice from previous nursing student applicants.
I'm 24 years-old applied to nursing school this Spring, and discovered I am #82/239 applicants (pre-TEAS exam). There are 36 available slots in the program, with 5 alternates. Honestly, what do you think are my chances of being accepted to the program?
The reason I ask is because I have a job opportunity at Kaiser Permanente Hospital for a full time position, at $25.00. While it isn't nursing money, I feel it is pretty good income for my age, plus full benefits, and the hospital is 5 minutes from my house. I was going to turn down the full-time position, and take a 16 hour a week position (no benefits), in the chance I got accepted. However, I have to decide this by May 1st.
Back to the main question, do you think my chances of being accepted are slim? Would you take the full-time job?
Thanks for the help!
