Hello, Fellow Members.
I fee like such a failure I really want to become an RN, but it does not look like its going to happen. I struggle alot academically and I have had to withdraw from courses several times due to the fact I have a hard time academically as a result I have been placed on financial Aide Probation 1 because of it . There is alot of cirumstances in my life that are causing me so such problems academically. I think that I am going to try for LPN because there is a mixture of class and clinicals and the program is only for 18 months. Even though I want to become an RN really bad I think that I need to realize that it may not be in the cards for me and that I may need to try for LPN. I have wanted to become a nurse for several years now so I don't want to totally give up on my dream of becomiing a nurse because I strongly believe that I could do it, but not at the level that I am looking at. I lwould like to know has any one out there heard of these two books. The Nurse Entrance Test by Educational Resourses , Inc. or Nursing School and Allied Health Entrance Examinations by Arco. These are the two books that were suggested to me to study by. What do you think? Do you have any other suggestions or input? I am hoping to take the LPN Pre-Admission test eitiher on September or October 2003 and the class begins January 2004. Do you think that I am giving myself enough time to study for the exam? Are there any free online Pre-Nursing Exams that I can study for? Where should I go to look for scholarships, grants to assist me in paying for the course. I am sorry this post was so long I just had to vent. you may email me email@example.com
