Hi everyone! I'm new to this site and was just wondering what it's like all over the U.S. regarding nursing programs. I'm in California and it is so impacted... I can't believe it. Most of the schools in my area have between 500-700 applicants for 20-40 spaces per semester. I finished my RN prereqs and have been applying for almost a year now. I am currently finishing the last week of my CNA training which I am very excited about. I'm trying to stay positive through all of this. I never imagined that it would take me this long to figure out "what I want to be when I grow up"
and then be passionate, driven and dedicated to something that I may not get the chance to do. I may be willing to move someday if I'll have a better chance in another area. Good luck to everyone with your nursing goals! Thanks :spin:
