Anyone still waiting to hear for fall? - page 2
Is anyone else still waiting to hear if they got in to their program for fall? We asked the program secretary this week when we could expect to hear, and all she would tell us was "by the end of... Read More
Jul 23, '01Well, Well, Happyhorsefan you are so encouraging, I too am hoping to do well and I am so anxious I cant sleep at nights.
Thanks for the encouragements.
Jul 24, '01I hope you all will be accepted into the desired programs! You have worked hard and many of you are mature individuals and will make great nurses! I will pray for you all.
My advisor said I should apply in Oct., and will be able to start clinicals in Jan 02. I need to maintain a very good GPA, because a good part of our seats are for Union members, I am not one of them. The rest of the seats are granted to the students with the highest GPA.
What are your GPAs?
Jul 24, '01Good luck! I am enrolled in a ADN program and my nursing GPA is a 4.0. My cumulative is a 3.65. I took some liberal arts classes back in 95. I try so hard to keep it up too because I want to go to a private University after I graduate to get my BSN, and I'll need scholarship money for that!
Jul 25, '01Hi RN,
I am proud of you. How did you maintain that GPA4.0? I need some advice because I need to hit the books from start this I have not been to school for 15 years now and will start my prerequisites this fall.
I am so happy to be a part of this Forum. When I am unsure of myself I just click!! and here I find people who are in the same position as I am.
You will get that scholarship my dear.
Jul 25, '01RN, Congrats on the perfect 4! That's so good to hear.
Please share with us how you did it.
Best wishes, Christina
Jul 26, '01Dirty House, Messy kid, Unfed husband!!! But I think they still love me. Plus I haven't had to work yet. But those loans are starting to pile up. I'm sure you all know what I mean!!!
Jul 26, '01Oh my gosh rn2003, please don't make me think about those loans. I try to just keep that stashed away from my conscious being. It's so funny to hear everybody freaking about admission to the nursing program because I remember just how that felt. It's neat to know that we all go through so much of the same stuff. I like what Jeannie1163 said about even making beds being nerve-racking (sp?). I was so-o-o-o-o-o frustrated by hospital corners and thought I'd never be able to get those damn things right.
As far as GPAs go, I'm in a BSN program and I've got a 4.0 nursing average and a 3.88 cumulative. Not too shabby for a high school dropout. I've worked pretty hard for that, and I'm looking forward to graduating suma cum laude in May.
Be blessed all....
Jul 26, '01Way to go crna someday!
I'm also considering taking the crna route someday. The only school in Wi is in La Cross. Do you know of any in Northern Il?
Jul 27, '01I don't really know of any in the northern IL area. I'll tell you a good spot to check though... http://www.anesthesia-nursing.com . That's a nice website with lots of information on CRNA programs across the country.
Jul 27, '01There is a CRNA program at Rush University in Chicago. That is about as north as my knowledge base gets
Jul 27, '01I am sure your husband and kids are very proud of you! And I hope they all chip in to share the work around the house.
Jul 27, '01I do have a wonderful husband. I've been very blessed in that area, and he wants to see me succeed just as badly as I do. As for the kids....it's difficult to get a 4yo and a (barely)3yo to chip in with housework, but I sure do try to get them to. Getting them to clean their room is about as much help as I can get from those two angels. My other little one is only 8 months, so no housework help there (but he sure does help relieve stress with his cute little self).
