Ok, I am a student at Delgado Community College and I've applied for the Fall 2012 class at Charity School of Nursing. I know that they go by the profile score, which I have worked on and I know that my profile score was pretty high, so I'm hoping to get in. (My Hesi score was a 92, I have a 3.75 gpa, and have a degree in sign language -I'm currently in A&P II, so I don't have the final grade on that yet, but I'm working my butt off!) The waiting is killing me- I called last week and they said that they will send the acceptance/"thanks for your interest, but.." letters at the end of this month.
I have so many questions though, so I thought I'd start here. Is anyone else on all-nurses applying for that group? Also, for anyone who is attending CSN already: I have 2 children (and currently a full time job, but I'm planning on quitting if I get accepted). In your experience, how neglected are my children going to be? (lol) (I do also have a husband, who is being super supportive esp when I need hours and hours to study for A&P; However, 2 years of that... hmmmmmm...)
Also, I am a nervous wreck about parking in New Orleans (I live in Slidell)(I know- of all the things to stress about) and I'm worried about the "horror stories" that I hear re: nursing school in general (for example: "The hardest thing I've ever done in my life!", "I cried daily.","The first semester they try to scare you out.", and my favorite, "Say goodbye to your friends and family for 2 years.") and CSN in particular (it's ridiculously hard, etc.). I love a challenge, but I'd like some inside info about what it's like when you start. I think personal experiences and tips will help ease some of my fears and concerns. What's it like? Any advice that you wish someone would have given to you? Please feel free to write, anyone who has attended Charity School of Nursing recently or is currently attending. Also anyone feeling the same way I do -anxious as hell about starting the dreaded "nursing school". Lol
