I am so pissed! The Dean told me that I would be fully considered and now I have gotten a denial letter for Spring 2004. Oh my goodness! What am I going to do? I just applied at Deckers Nursing college for the Spring let me hope that things work out. Can you make another suggestion? I will go anywhere just to be in the nursing program. Help me please. I need to apply to as many schools as possible for the Spring. God is going to help me.

Annmarei, I think I read earlier that you were trying for Hillsborough Community College. I was excepted into their nursing program ten years ago (didn't finish, but that's another story). They were very competitive then - 3.75 gpa requirement to get in when I went. I don't think it is you. I have had nothing but problems with them. I went to try and transfer my nursing courses to the school up here and they refused to get me a syllabus even though my school asked me to get one. They were belittling and unhelpful. I wouldn't recommend their nursing program to anyone. That being said, I do believe Tampa has some easier entry LPN programs (Here's a link to one I found in Tampa in case you are interested in that route http://www.erwintech.org/
) you might be able to get into right away and then you could bridge over to the RN program with much less difficulty. I don't live in that part of the country any more, but I know they were very competitive before and imagine they are still now. I know there are schools with no wait lists if you are willing to move. Just not sure exactly where all of them are. I am sorry you are having such difficultly, but my experience with HCC was MISERABLE and am very glad that I am not attending there. I hope this turns out to be a blessing in disguise for you and you find an excellent school that believes in supporting their students in achieving their goals.
