Has anyone gotten rejected from a nursing program? What did you tell yourself in order to stay motivated?
I've already gotten two rejection letters. At first, I took it in stride. But sometimes I find myself questioning if this is worth it. I left behind a promising career as a journalist in order to pursue a path that is more meaningful. I returned to community college sitting next to a bunch of fresh high-school graduates, just so I could fulfill my pre-reqs. I went from making a decent salary to a $9/hour job as a nurse's aide just so I could get some healthcare experience. And now these rejection letters feel like I got stood up on a date after I got all dolled up! Haha.
Has anybody else been in the same situation as I am? If so, what were your coping mechanisms? What tips can you provide in order to keep striving?
