I'll try and keep this short...
I was in my junior year of the microbilogy program when I decided I wanted to be a nurse! I've been working my butt off to turn out A's in my pre-req's for NS. I've finished A&P, chem, micro, psych, english and nutrition. I'm enrolled for math and patho right now. Cumulative GPA 3.7.
I'm currently working full time in a level 1 trauma center hospital in SICU as an aide. I learn SO MUCH everyday I'm there. It pays the bills but I have a husband and baby at home! (He works and goes to school full time as well!) I want to be an RN on this floor SO BAD.
I've met with area nursing school reps who tell me that my chances for getting in for fall 13 are slim to none! WHAT?! Ugh! Whey tell me I'm under-qualified or my classes aren't going to transfer or some point system discrepancy.
I know that I am young (only 20!) and impatient, but it's killing me to see these opportunities pass me by.
