Well, I am 27 and returning to school. Nursing was always what i wanted to do, I just got sidetracked in my first round at college and ended up doing other things. When I decided to go for nursing again, I got a list of schools
with accelerated bachelor programs, and researched as many as I could. Turned out I met the requirements for at least 10 schools that had application deadlines this fall. So, I just sent about 7 apps out to schools where I met the requirments. Im single, dont have kids, and am at this point where i know nursing is what I want to do with my life, so moving across the country is a small thing to me. Also, I hear UD Mercy is a good school.
I plan on financing it with student loans. The debt does seem scary, but to me, it seems so worth it knowing I will finally be an RN. I am always hearing stories about it being so hard getting in to nursing school
, and now that I am in... I am so excited, I dont mind moving!
WHen do you plan on applying and what other schools are you considering?
