I also posted this on the student forum.
In July, I gave up my seat in the nursing program for the fall start because I was unsure and decided to look into social work. So this semester I am taking two beginning social work classes. Last week I just told me niece that I don't know that social work is for me and was wondering what I will do next semester. I've applied for many jobs, did some interviews and have not had an offer.
So today, I get the mail and there is a letter from the college offering me a seat in the spring start for the ADN program. Now I am totally taken aback because I did not reapply (thought I had to) and did not expect this.
So now I am wondering if this is sign from above that I was meant to start this program. I feel as if someone is trying to tell me something. With no job offers and thinking that social work is not for me, maybe I was meant to do the nursing thing.
I told my husband this and he just looked at me like I was crazy, even though he is very spiritual.
How would you feel? I was actually totally schocked, then sort of excited.
I have until the 17th to go up to the college and sign the form stating I accept this seat so I have some time to ponder over this.
Thanks for reading.
it was good to see your post this morning. i too am struggling with a very similar problem. after many years in the software business i decided it was time to go back to school and do what i really wanted to do unfortunately i have two loves -- nursing and education. i have been taking nursing pre-req's for the past year and a half and have applied to enter the nursing program in january. our acceptance letters will not be sent until the 15th of december so i am in the holding-my-breath stage.
in the mean time, i have taken a couple of education methods classes at a local university and have actually started working with a few students and observing.
now what to do? i feel my heart tugging me into nursing but my husband has also decided to go back to school into education. do i go the education route and have nights, weekends, summers, and holidays off with him or do i go the nursing route?
i think your letter is a sign and i am glad you will be giving nursing a shot. it is better to try to make an informed decision by doing then always wonder.
