    [font="verdana"]i was inthe same dead-end job for 20 years. was in the hospital giving birth to mysecond child and i had an epiphany. i knew i was supposed to be a nurse. istarted going to school full-time, to get pre-req's done, working full time andhad my 2 month old baby and 13 year old. nothing was going to stop me. i was sobusy and so happy i knew this was the right path for me. a year and a half later i sent in theapplication the very first day they were accepting them. i started to read andhear so many stories about rejections and disappointments. i accepted iwouldn't get in this year and had already planned out what to take next inschool to keep moving towards a bsn. last thursday,10 at night, working at my dead-endjob of now 22 years, i got the email. i never in my life felt the way i did atthat moment. shock, relief, elation, joy, laughing, crying, shaking, screamingto myself in my office, "you did it". i feel my life is finally aboutto begin. i start sept. 2012. i’m even crying typing this! lol

    I cried reading this! I am a mom too, though my daughter just turned 12. I had her the year after I graduated HS, leaving me with no choice of college and a life od meaningless jobs ahead. In 2009 I decided to go back to school. I started with 1 class (I didn't think I could do it) When I realized I could I started full time. With school, work, and being a mom I worked my butt off to maintain a 3.85 gpa! I heard so many stories of rejection that I was sure I wouldn't get in the first time I applied. Last night - 3 months and 29 days after handing in my application I got my acceptance letter. I cried! I experienced so many emotions, I was in shock! I felt an incredible sense of pride, my hard work paid off. Although I feel a great sense of accomplishment I know this is the mere beginning of a long road ahead.I just can't wait to travel it!

    After reading the qualifications posts of others who had better grades and higher science entrance exam results, I had already resigned myself to the notion that I wasn't getting into nursing school for the next semester. I was going through a large pile of mail when I saw that the large envelope in my hand bore the logo of the school and the label of the nursing department. I ripped it open, hoping for good news, and began reading, "Congratulations!..." I had to read it twice because it didn't seem real.

    I told my husband first, as he was in the room with me. I messaged a former co-worker, who had worked with me in a place that could only be described as nutjob city, to let her know the news. I didn't announce it on Facebook until the next day.

    I was so excited! After living in California and seeing how hard it was to get in, I was shocked when we moved to Northeast Arizona and I got in the first try! It was a stressful 3 months waiting for the results though!

    I hysterically called my boss and he gave me the day off to look at what kinds of classes I would be taking

    I just got my acceptance letter a couple of days ago! I remember thinking, "It's ok if you don't get in. It's ok!" ....and what do you know...I got in!! I jumped up and down and cried so hard it was probably frightening to those who saw me. LOL

    I just found out yesterday and am still jumping up and down! I was at work (in the OR) and so all of the nurses I work with were squealing and jumping up and down with me! Of course I had to celebrate last night and I'm still in shock that it's happening!! I can't wait!

    I was in shock and disbelief. I read my letter over and over just to make sure I was reading what was written correctly. I was very excited about the news.
