OK, I had to brag a little. After not getting accepted into the BSN program of my choice, I had given up on nursing school. I had a really good GPA, and was not accepted because the school chose their own students first; regardless of GPA then they chose students who had a previous degree, regardless of GPA. I knew these students received extra points, but was told by the school on at least two occasions that it was such a small advantage that the fact I only had 5 hours at their school wouldn’t really matter. WELL IT DID!
Well the school went through its wait list and due to the fact that it was a last minute spot and most of the students couldn’t afford to come out of pocket the cash it required, and that most of them had failed to get their CNA, guess who got called the day classes started and was told I had a spot if I wanted it? Well HECK YEAH I wanted it!
So today I took my first pharmacology test and I got a 96!!!!! One of the highest grades in the whole class!!! Plus last week one of my assignments was used as an example of the correct way to do a patient assessment! I may be wrong, but it feels good to prove that I am as good as the students they choose ahead of me.
