I'm sorry...I really wasn't trying to be rude. I have the tendency to not watch my tone online lol. I'm just being honest with you, to tell the truth. I'm REALLY glad (sincerely) that you have faith. You need it! I'm just saying, that from my experience these past two years, those specific grades don't make it in. However, I did preface that in the other thread by also saying that it is dependent upon the applicant pool. I never said I am in. I'm waiting for my letter just like you, and I applied with what will hopefully be three As and one B. I highly doubt I will get in.
I really do wish you luck
@is5512- Most likely, yes. Mainly because of the flexibility I have and the multiple campuses I can attend. I don't have any issues with the school though. With the exception of one prof, I've loved all of my teachers and thoroughly enjoy my classes. ITCC also doesn't charge an app fee which was a big deal for me
Can't afford to spend $40 per school!
Thanks! I know it can get frustrating but, you're right, if one thing I learned in the military is that complaining doesn't get you anywhere, action does! Like I said before, it takes a huge heart, non critical and a cool head to be a nurse... well, a good one anyway. I've seen my share of Mean Mildred's and I know that's not the kid of people we want to be. I don't know what my pool will be, but I hope the board can see that I've been through the tough part and all i have to do is prove it academically.
I have a 6 month old baby, Sofia, and a 2 year old, Elias. Sofia was born with Hemifacial microsomia. Recently she had to use a feeding tube for five months. Week after week I was placing NG tubes down her little nose. I hadn't had any experience with peds, so this was challenging. But, like I thank God because this wasn't the first time that I had done it! We were considering a G-tube, but we placed her in the hands of God and had faith that she would pull through and eat fine on her own. It was a challenge, but she's flourishing! (Praise God!) She's a normal and healthy baby and meeting all of her milestones!
Every day we have a session of physical therapy (her and I) and we do range of motion, touch therapy, and mommy time of course! I'm just at wonder of how what I've been through helps me be what I am today. I'm sure that that is the case for many others! And, that's why I know that I was meant to be a nurse, and that I will be... We don't go through life aimlessly- there is a reason for our existence!
