i just really need some good advice. after being in college for 5 years with little guidance from my counselors i just really wanted to be finished with school and just start my career so towards the end i really didnt care much as long i had decent grades and were passing was fine with me. i am thinking of going back to school as i cannot seem to find any jobs within my field. i have been looking in a few nursing programs at some local community college but i would honestly like to know from anyone who are in any of the programs there LPN, ADN etc what are my chances of getting in. i do have A&P 1 &2, microbiology, math, English, psychology, chemistry 1&2 your honesty would be greatly appreciated

- May 8, '12 by JAYPARKseems like i was reading my life.
I was in school for 5 years (messing around, just not motivated with little guidance) and I graduated with a 2.5 gpa. I got a job after graduating at a corporate office (ok money and able to move up), but it's not my thing. About a year ago, I decided to go for nursing, completed some pre-reqs with all A's and I'm starting this fall at a CC near my university.
I'm quitting this August and trade in my button down and slacks for scrubs lol. I'd much rather graduate and start off with at least 55k salary (i know its a bad market) than try to move up and hopefully get a 55k salary in 2 years at my current job.
You can do it. Just get all A's in pre-req and apply to a lot of programs. Getting a nursing degree is better than going for MBA, MPA, Law School, MSW right now.
o i just turned 25 btw. Start young and get it over with. I wish I went for nursing from the start....Last edit by JAYPARK on May 8, '12 : Reason: added a few things yo
- May 10, '12 by ManhattanBreadYou can do it! I am kinda in the same boat, but I just started a corporate job. I love what I do (it's a health care company where the majority of employees are...NURSES!), but a few years from now, I may want to just follow my old dreams and do nursing. For how long did you have your corporate job?
