Accepted!! Goodbye cubicle, HELLO clinicals!

  1. 4
    Hello out there! I am thrilled to announce I can finally stop stalking the "Pre-Nursing Student" threads and begin the "Nursing Student" thread-stalking. I got my acceptance letter for the Spring 2014 start in a BSN program! I was curious to see if anyone else is currently starting or already started their nursing program after quitting a full time-comfy-living-weekends-and-holidays-off desk job?? I am terrified to leave this cubicle prison that has grown to consume my Monday-Friday life for the past three years, but so incredibly anxious and excited for the day I never have to sit in this chair again. This past year of taking night and online prereqs while day dreaming of becoming a kick-butt-super-nurse has finally paid off. Now I just need to sit quietly at my desk and pretend my life is as ordinary as ever until I can give my notice!

    In the spirit of Jerry Maguire, "Who's coming with me?"...and what are all your stories? Please share!

    I still find it weird to post in the student thread, and I'm in my second semester. I'm an starting to relate less and less with the pre-nursing threads though. Maybe it was because we only did health assessments the first semester.

    Good luck with school!

    mee tooo!! I have a strangely very similar situation here. I have worked at my Monday through Friday holidays and weekends off desk job for 3 years and just found out I was accepted to the TWU BSN program nursing school yesterday!! Now of course I have a million things running through my mind like loans, background checks, orientation, drug screening, immunizations, insurance, physical, and loans loans loans. blahh! lol still super happy though. congratulations to us!

    I have been in the cubicle/office "prizon" for 20 years now and can't wait to start a program. Unfortunately, I only got on a waitlist for Spring, so likely another 7 months for me to start in summer.

    Congrats! Have fun!

    I've been in cubicle prison for 5 years. I'm officially half way through my first semester and I only see my cube a few days a week for some form of income. Congrats!!

    It does feel good to no longer stalk the pre nursing student threads. I got my acceptance letter last week for my ADN program that starts January 13th. I can't say how thrilled and excited I am. :-) Good luck to you!
