I've noticed, after two years of going to college, almost half way with getting my pre-reqs done.
The amount of difficulty it actually takes to become a nurse.
Not meaning that I'm gonna drop out, or change my major or anything.
But hear ALLL these stories about 400 applicants and only 35 making it in.
People going and getting their bachelors in something, then going into the program.
Waiting lists that take two years for people to get into the program.
How they just take people who have 4.0's, lvn exp.
And tons of others.
How apparently strict the nursing counselors are, and how they don't hardly ever look at your experience in the medical field.
(Volunteer btw 2yrs. besides that I've got no prior experience really.)
How they just look straight at your GPA and make a decision from there.
Which raises the question, are there still people these days that make it?
Meaning are their people who just get the grades and go the straight path to nursing without going through any detours??
(Bachelors, waiting lists, taking classes over again for basically 4.0)
People who went into nursing, with no background experience and still made it?
I mean we're all human, we all can't be perfect, so why are nursing programs
acting like we should be?
I've know many people who didn't have straight A's and still were successful into getting in the program and graduating.
Idk, just felt like venting.
Reply! and Thanks.
