I am a military spouse originally from Massachusetts. I attend CravenCC in Eastern NC. I was accepted into Chapel hill as a junior transfer. I have an AA-psychology, so I have about two semesters of science prerequisites to complete at UNC before I can apply for the nursing program. I fully understand that it is EXTREMELY difficult to get into this program, however, I have a full academic scholarship to this school, so my only option right now is UNC-CH: all eggs, one basket. I have a 4.0 (so far!) at my CC.
Now that you have a little back story, my question:
- What are the absolute best ways to prepare for nursing school?
- What do you believe were the defining characteristics on the application that you believe got you, or others you know, into nursing school?
I mean, give me an exhausting list of things to help make me competitive. I have to get into this nursing school because it is my only option right now. I am willing to take the time to do anything
to look good to whoever's
decision it will be to admit me. I pride myself in being well rounded and knowledgeable, so no task is too great. I am low income, so if I do not get into nursing school then I will have to receive my degree in another field because I cannot pass up this opportunity for a free education.
Thank you in advance for your
