    I love your story. I am trying to get back into my LPN_RN program. I failed two classes and got dismissed from the college. It's a great school and if I can get back in, I would have 3 or 4 terms left. I was halfway thru. I had a lot of things out of my control that led to my failure. I was pregnant and had high bp and protein in my urine, so the doctor put me on bedrest until my son was born. My husband failed his certification test to be a registred health information tech and that was a lot of stress. I am hoping now that things are getting better they will give me another chance. I really wanna be a RN and now that my baby is here I have more determination to get done!

    I am curios why you chose to pursue a 4 year psych degree? Instead of Nursing, since its what you always wanted to be.

    You are truly an inspiration! I started a bridge program in January but failed one class so I couldn't continue. Im praying I get back in for this January. I'm not giving up. I can't blame anyone but myself for this failure. But I know for a fact that next time I will be 100% focused on school. Good luck to everyone that is or has gone through this. I know how you feel. Keep going and don't give up. We can do it!!!!

    I love your story! And I really admire your strong will and dedication! Never say die! That is the spirit! That is just what people need to read on this website because too much on this board you will encounter people who toot their own horns too much and act as if they were never struggling nursing students! So it is refreshing to read an inspiring thread that is coming from the heart and bears the burden of truth! I don't know you and I am proud of you! I am starting nursing school in two weeks and I have been preparing myself for the atmosphere by studying and doing the study guides and test questions. I know the program will be rigorous and I want to get the best of it! Thank you for sharing your story OP! You rock!

    NursingLove4all Thank you so much for telling that inspirational story!! I have been putting off nursing school for sometime because circumstances was not right at the time. I figured that it will probably never be right so I need to get in and do what I have dreamed of doing :-) Congrats on your New Nursing Career and wish you nothing but the best :-) You have motivated me to keep pressing forward...

    im so happy I was able to motivate people with my story. i just want people to realize that nursing school is not easy and it takes so much effort and drains you out! But that's ok because once you start actually working, it's just as tough or even worse with the patient load and the amount of work that's required. That's why it's very important for you to love what you that you can tolerate lots of the mess that comes with this awesome profession. This is about helping people get better and giving back to society...if your a positive person and you care, don't give up this's all worth it in the end!
