Here's my story....
I found out my Mom had cancer this past summer, she lived 3.5 hours away (one way), but I went every week, to every doctor appointment, and stayed with her throughout her surgery. During radiation, I went on Tuesday evenings, and stayed till Friday evenings, came home and worked Saturday and Sundays, school all day Monday, and Tuesday, after Community clinical, it started all over again.
In November, Mom became very ill with what we found out was HHNK (extrmemly high blood sugar), and was in the hospital for a week. During that time, we moved her in with us, and brought her home when she was released.
As far as school goes, grades dropped, thought not extrmemely, but we had to write a "policy paper" worth 25% of our grade.
I failed that paper miserably. Asked if there was anything else I could do, was told no, requested that the dean of the program (also the instructor of the class) look over the paper again, as we were told we used no local sources, (which we did, but I won't go into details over that one).
Anyway, to make a long story short, I failed my nursing program by 2 points with one semester to go.
I went after the first of the year to a CC college nearby, and was told that I just made it to take the last TEAS test to assess whether I could be accepted into the very last accelerated program for ASN that this school was offering. I took the test on Thursday, and was notified Friday that I had been accepted!
So, I may not graduate this May and I may not have my BSN when I am finished, but I WILL graduate in December and I will have my ASN...
I am thankful.
Keep trying, and attempt other avenues. One door will open as another one closes. Hang in there and let us know how things go for you, ok?
