Fantastic advice, all! I am nowhere near a "new" student, at age 49, had some college in the nineties and just finished two years of pre reqs and co reqs, but I feel like a baby going into nursing school in August. I too tried three times to get in, made the alternate list once, denied once, and third time was a charm, plus maybe my straight A grades had something to do with it, and believe me, I didn't come by those right away or easily. Took me a few semesters to get my groove. But like others said here, why should we doubt ourselves when so many before us have done it? Why should we be any less qualified? I've uploaded all my forms to certified profile, gotten all my first semester books, have my pretty, engraved Littman steth and my comfy nursing shoes
, so bring it! All I have left to do is order my scrubs
, and I'm ready!
