Hi my name is Cassi. I apologize in advance for not typing with correct punctuation but I'm on my son's iPad and its too much of a pain
I am a pre nursing student at Naugatuck valley community college in CT and I will be ready to apply to the nursing program next fall. The nursing program here is very competitive, as most are, so I hear. My advisor told me that last year the students who got in got a >80 on their teas V, and had a 3.4-3.7 gpa. I will need all A's from here on out to get a 3.5 or so, and I can't help but worry about how devastated I would be if I didn't get in... I'm sure I'm not alone in that, I've considered another major, but nursing really is my dream. I've been a MA for 6 years, mainly in ob/gyn.. And I love it everything about it...
What if a student doesn't get in?
Are there any tips to really give your application a push to stand out from the others?
From what I understand, applications are only accepted once per year, so if I DID get accepted in the fall of 2014, would I not be a nursing student until fall of 2015?!? This seems sooo long for just an associates degree.. It's very intimidating for me, and I'm feeling doubtful... can I do this? I'm very motivated and determined, but I can't imagine working so hard for so long for (possible) rejection...
Anyone have any words of advice for a pre nursing student feeling overwhelmed?
