    Thank you so much for sharing your story, you are very inspiring to me. I am going thru the same thing that happened to you. Currently I am in a BSN accelerated program and this is my last chance to stay in school;if I dont pass my class I will be kick out. I am thinking that my problem is also the pace of the school. If I don't pass my class I am thinking of enrolling myself to an LPN program and then do what you did. I don't want to give up in my dream in becoming an RN. I love nursing and I will do everything that I can to be a nurse.

    Thank you so much for sharing your experience. I really needed to read this to provide further encouragement. Like many other students, I am having some difficulties with getting into the nursing program. I refuse to give up because I know this is my dream. When I spoke to the nursing coordinator about alternatives to bringing up my GPA, she immediately said maybe I can change my major. I couldn't believe she went there. It's one thing if I suggest changing my major or something but for her to suggest that without even asking me how bad I wanted to be a nurse, was clearly a slap in the face for me. Nevertheless, I will do what I need to, to make sure I get in next year, leaving no room for anyone to suggest otherwise.
