When I was wait listed I applied to several other nursing programs
in the area. If that is a possibility for you I would do that. Apply for waiting list slots at other schools
. (Affirm that you are able to accept a slot on short notice.) (Literally the day school starts...)
Also I would write to the program and find out:
1. Do they have a waiting list?
2. What place were you?
Affirm in your letter that you are prepared to take a noshow/late drop slot when school starts in fall...
I took those steps and ended up getting in.....
If you let me know what nearest big city/state you live in I could do some searching on the net...
