You should try to pinpoint why you failed. I had a friend that failed fundamentals. She was getting a B up until the final exam and only got 50% of the questions right. It completely shook her confidence. If this is something you truly want, go back. You'll be glad you did.
I had four family members that died within 3 months. So I decided to withdraw from the program. And it took 1 year for me to get back in which starts in 1 week.
I have that problem too. My instructor told me i have the worst stage fright. She was very nice about it. She just told me to take a few deep breaths and just do it. I usually have to to the skills test twice because of my nervousness.
Try St Lukes hospital. They hired me with on Fundamentals as a basis and everyone says that they are a great place to work. I just started last week.
Is there a reason you don't think the program is competitive panpan?
For the MA, I think mostly they work in Dr offices. Because of this they aren't very flexible. As a CNA, I think you will get much more experience because the duties that you perform are those that you see in your first semester RN clinical. I'm not sure how much MAs get paid. I'm in St Louis and they make like $8 an hour. CNAs aren't much different but a friend of mine just got hired and she said they would be paying her $12 an hour. Also since CNAs mostly work in long term care there is much more room for flexibility which you will need when you start your RN program.
I'm hoping to get accepted into the pre-nursing this fall. If so, I'll probably live in their dorm because its so inexpensive. I sent my application in late march.
I have a friend who has applied to Truman and she still hasn't heard anything either. I've got my fingers crossed for her!
Congratulations. I was thinking the same thing. I applied for January 2013. Hopefully i'm accepted into their pre-nursing starting in the fall. When did apply and how long did it take for you to find out if you were accepted? Are you going to live in the dorm?
nancypants...i was wondering if you got accepted?
You should look into places in the central west end. The bus system is pretty reliable. Congratulations on your acceptance!
I'm a nursing student and i love it too. Of course i'm looking forward to going back to school. But what i am not looking forward to is the exhaustion that i feel while doing school. All that work plus clinicals. It was so much. I already can't wait for summer break!
I'm gonna get another weave. It helps me save time doing other things than my hair!
I personally don't see what the big deal is if the OP wants to move somewhere else. Some hospitals pay back loans so that students will work for them. That is what this would be a loan. You never know. The OP is aware that she may have to pay back the loan and seems like she is willing to do so. But i agree with everyone else when they say jobs are hard to come by. Perhaps there is a way to satisfy a portion of the committment. Work there a certain length of time and perhaps pay back less? I'd check with the original hospital.
