Not getting accepted into nursing school? Try...

  1. nursing-student-applying-
  2. If you are not sure about getting accepted into nursing school - apply to many many schools.

    How many schools did you apply to? Did you apply to 1, 2, or many?

    I applied to 1 school for pre-nursing and was accepted. I'm guaranteed a spring 2013 start date for the nursing program with the possibility of starting fall 2012 if there is space.

    Lol. I liked the cartoon.
    I applied to 1 nursing school only and got accepted. But I am done though.

    I applied to one school and got on the alternate list. I'm applying to two others to "hopefully" have options.

    I applied to only 2 and was accepted to 1, but that's one more than what I thought would accept me!

    This is funny, yet sadly true. When I was in school, people would mention the 5+ local schools they applied too. I figured if I didn't get in I'd go work in the circus.

    I applied to 20 schools....!!!

    I only applied to one for Fall 2012 admission. Should have applied to more, but I don't want to drive an hour each way to school. The one I applied to is about 20 minutes from home Awaiting my acceptance (fingers crossed) letter!! But, if I don't get accepted this time, I will apply again for next year and take EMT and Paramedic courses in he meantime to keep my brain working

    I applied to 1 school, denied the first try because of the date that I finished my last prereq, and then I got in 2 semesters later. I cannot complain too much - I knocked out a psych minor with a 4.0 while I was waiting :-)

    Good luck everyone!

    I applied to two schools. Got into the BSN program, did not get into the ADN program.
