Hi. I've been accepted into nursing school
and they require the flu shot. The thing is that the last time I took it I got very sick. It was the worst feeling. I work and currently am taking classes. Dont really wanna go though getting sick again. Is there another way around this? Or an alternative?

What do you think are the chances you can "get around" a requirement of your school??
As already noted, once you get through school and start working as a nurse, most healthcare employers will require (or at least "strongly encourage") annual flu shots. You might as well get used to doing it.
You're going to get sick in nursing school anyway. Entering nursing school guarantees you will be exposed to a wide variety of major and minor "bugs" -- wait 'til you hit your pediatrics rotation!
