This is a discussion on NEED NEW PROGRAM! WFs Are Now Ws, No Readmission to Current Program in Florida State Nursing Programs, part of Florida Nursing ... This past semester, I experienced a personal hardship, that forced me to leave nursing school....by Sowhat105 Jul 11, '12This past semester, I experienced a personal hardship, that forced me to leave nursing school. Because of my sexuality, I was kicked out of my household, and had to have WFs in my nursing program. Today, I received word that my WFs have been converted to " Withdrawals", and I have been able to salvage my GPA... It is now a 3.26, with all of my first year of nursing school courses calculated with that... However, I was not denied readmission into my schools nursing program. One of my professors quoted, " I do not believe he shall be successful in this, nor any nursing program..."
I have taken Fundamentals of Nursing(Aka Intro to Med-Surge) B average, Pharmacology(Two Semester of this Hell), passed first semester with a B and second with a C, Psychiatric Nursing with a B, and Womans Health/L&D with a C... I was finishing Advanced Med-Surge, and Gerontology....
I was in my final year for my associates, in GA. I was supposed to graduated December 7th, 2012. I have reestablished myself here in Miami/Fort Lauderdale Florida. I am originally from Atlanta, and left in April.
This is my dream to be a nurse, and to be so close, and have to leave the program 4 weeks before the end of the semester, and 8 months before graduation is killing me. I have done so much over the course of the last 2 1/2 years, and killed myself to make this dream a fruition.
Can anyone suggest a nursing school? Is there any school out there, either in South Florida, or GA, or anywhere in the nation that is still taking applications for fall or spring, that would be willing to continue my education?
I have applied to schools down here, but they take time to hear from them and coordinate with them. Please, I need other options all over the nation. I do not care where it is!!!! I just want to realize my dream, join Doctors Without Borders, and become the best damn nurse I can be.
Anyone, with any suggestions please respond...
I have come to far to end it now, even if I have to start completely over... I want to finish this! This is my dream!Last edit by Sowhat105 on Jul 11, '12 : Reason: Included More Information

- Jul 11, '12 by AOx1Sorry to hear about this difficult situation. As a nurse educator, I can tell you that your situation is not unusual. I am sorry to say that I have seen many students who were kicked out when they came out to their families.
First and foremost, I hope you have or will seek out another source of emotional support. From the many times I have seen this over the years, my students have felt hurt and betrayed by this, and I would hope you have someone who can be supportive. Nursing school is difficult in the best circumstances.
Please don't give up on nursing. I've seen many with average grades become great nurses. It may take time to find a school you can attend. Since nursing doesn't have a standardized curriculum in the U.S., it is sometimes necessary to start fresh at a new school.
I wish I could wave a magic wand and fix this for you, but of course, that's not possible. I can tell you that many of my former students who have experienced similar setbacks are now successful and happy professionals. The common denominator is that they didn't give up. I hope you don't either.

~South Florida native, living in Orlando now.
Seminole State College in Orlando doesn't take their apps until September for a January 2013 star, I know that. If you are willing to move up here that is (you said anywhere in the nation). Plus, they have a concurrent program with UCF where you can take BSN classes at the same time you take the ASN classes. Was going to do this until I realize that SSC's schedule wouldn't let me be able to work... hence my applying to HCC in Tampa with a night program.
