kicked out of bsn program need advise

  1. What I am afraid of is should I start the lpn program in Fall, 4 months after I have been dropped from bsn program, or should I wait a year before starting lpn? I want to start this fall, but I am afraid that I may fall short again. My main concern is, will I be able to return to nursing school if I fail again? If I fail before I get my lpn, will any lnp program give me any more chances.

    I have made the mistake of rushing into nursing school, and I don't want to make that mistake again. But at the same time, I don't want to delay reaching my dream. Please share your knowledge.

    I say go for it! When I got my acceptance phone call telling me I was in, I hesitated and got scared. I was afraid of failure, to the point where I wanted to put it off for another semester. But what is more time going to do for you? That is the question you need to answer. It gives you more time to sit around and doubt yourself.
    Think about what went wrong in your BSN program, and work on fixing that. Can you pin it down to one or two things?

    Don't delay go for it, but go in with a positive attitude don't go in thinking you will fail. The longer you put it off the longer it will take to finish.

    The second time will be the charm, learn from your mistakes that caused you to fail. If you really want this then don't delay go back. As long as you can start some where you can always bridge to BSN. Don't doubt yourself always think positive.

    I guess some of it would depend on WHY you were dropped from the BSN program. Academics? Clinical skills? Attendance? Something else?

    I was dropped because I withdrew from 2 classes, due to stress and ill preparedness. I never had a job let alone worked in the health field. I didn't really know what nursing entailed. It is all about how one presents one self. Professionalism. The workload was also very tough, but if it wasn't for the stress, I know I could handle the work load.

    Before starting the program, I thought of nursing as a field of study that demands hard work and study. I was very wrong. Now I see that nursing is handled like a business because the nurse is the face that the patient will see. Yes, I need to work on my study skills, but what really got me was my ability to socially conform and to be professional. Thanks for your feedback. You guys really supported me. I am afraid to try again because I don't want to feel the same sense of regret. But I definitely want to change and conform from the bottom of my heart to succeed as a nurse.

    You seem very self-aware and honest. That will help you in the long run. Take the time to mature, do something that will help you develop those professional skills which you lack, and then- when you are ready -try again.

    I am kind of opposite of you as far as work/school. I worked ever since I was old enough. Even now I am "employed" PRN for many companies/ people because I enjoy working. ( They are for the most part family but I am part of the payroll ). But if I have ever doubted myself I knew that if I was going to succeed I needed to let go of that doubt ASAP. Be confident in yourself. Nursing school is tough but if you get yourself in the right mindset, it is not only possible but you will do great!!! If you keep putting it off it may never happen. I have a few older friends who have had goals to go back to school but kept putting it off and they are only getting older. I would ask yourself why do you want to be a nurse and if you have a good reason (or more) use those to motivate yourself and hop to it!!! Many people want to go to school because it is a job and when they get to the hospitals and are cleaning up poo they realize it's not the career for them. SO my advice is get serious and get it done!!! Good luck
