Do you ever feel discouraged when your getting ready to apply?

  1. Have you ever felt this way, and at the end you actually got accepted somewhere? Im looking at 5 universities im going to apply for and maybe 3 community colleges, even though im currently attending a CSU. im almost done with my pre reqs. but when im getting closer to apply i feel very discouraged almost like its unrealistic to gett accepted anywhere because any school for nursing is so competitive, and hard to get into. My first semester in college i got all staright A's and comming to the end of this semester im looking at staright A's as well, im a freshman, im always ahead doing research of colleges, already been studying for my tease test etc. Academically im good standing. but i dont know why i put my self down alot. have you ever felt this way and at the end you suprised your self and got accepted somewhere?

    I was actually experiencing this just last week. It took for a couple of RNs that i knew and my bezt friend to give me advice. I apply for a BSN program next week and meet with a recruiter from the program the 10th of May. I'm scared of failure but I know that if it is in GOD plans for me then I will be successful.

    I feel the same. I am scared to death of A&P, because if I fail, the dream of my BSN will go out the window. I am going to my #1 BSN school choice tonight for an orientation/information session, I hope they will look over my transcripts and give me some advise. I am currently waiting to hear if I got into my #1 choice LPN school, and the wait is torture.
    I am just scared I won't make it, half the stories I read here freak me out, especially the stories about failing out because a clinical instructor thinks someone is too quiet. Nursing seems more like a gamble every day. No jobs for ASN's no jobs for BSN's with no experience.... if it wasn't for the fact this is my calling, and I know it to be true down to my bones I would wipe my hands of it all and just find something easy.

    @Heathermax I think from your post that you are located in the same state as me. I went to Sentara open house last time t hey had it. I pray that I get into that program.

    I'm feeling the same but a bit more nervous. I just find it shocking that I'm now at that point when I have to apply to nursing programs. I'm not at all discouraged because I know this is what I want to do and I have my family, boyfriend, and I praying that I do get accepted. In the end, it wil allll be worth it!

    Oh wow. Which program are you applying to?
  12. by   HeatherMax
    All of them! LOL... competition around here is brutal! I WANT Sentara's BSN, just get the BSN out of the way, but I loved the feel at Riverside. But, I have a ton of classes I still need before I can apply.

    I felt very discouraged as I was applying to nursing schools late last year and earlier this year. I felt that I wasn't competitive mostly because of my grades. I applied to two private schools, one public school, and one at a community college. In the end, I got into all but one of the programs. I'll be attending a program at one of the CSU's in Southern California. Sometimes, you'd be surprised that you are actually a competitive applicant! You won't know until you get that letter! Good luck to you!
