Ok, so here's whats up.
September 1st 2012 deadline.
I'm an LPN applying for the LPN to ASN transition to Ivy Tech. I'm an ER LPN (a dying breed) and I fit within the two year time frame.
I have 3 A's, 1 B and a 79.3% on my TEAS. What do you think?
The anxiety is really getting to me because I feel so competent in my nursing abilities. I've literally saved people's lives and feel I have every right to be as independent and earn as much as the RNs I work with. Yet, I'm plagued by the thought of, "I wasn't good enough to be admitted to RN school the first time, why would this time be any different?"
I'm terrified this thought is the truth and that I'm not academically equipped to be an RN; and then one day my LPN ED position will be disgarded and I'll become disgruntled because I end up working in an environment I know does not suit me.
Two LPNs I work with in the ED who did NOT graduate in the last 2 years applied last spring to start this summer. Their grades were as follows:
65.5% on TEAS
Accepted to Lawrence LPN to ASN program
80% on TEAS
Waitlisted and then shortly took a spot in one of the Anderson locations.
Some encouraging words would be appreciated. I'll find out of my acceptance or refusal in October. I'll update this post to inform everyone of my standing.
