Thought I had answered this but guess not. meanmaryjean, I may be a pre-nursing student but I've been in healthcare for 35 years so this was a total surprise. And since the CDC doesn't recommend it, I don't feel the need. Not that I mind getting one, but for them to say we have to have 2 doses before we can even apply to the program is just going overboard, especially if both doses can be finished before classes even start. And no, I do not get furious every time my plans don't work out but this is not just a little inconvenience, it's a WHOLE YEAR! Again, not really a problem for younger people but I am about to be 54 so a whole year IS a big deal. I'd like to get my loans paid off before I have to retire and I'd like to get through nursing school
before I have to file bankruptcy. I am on my own, not married with an additional income and loans don't cover the cost of living. My credit cards are almost maxed out now so adding an extra year isn't an option for me. Sorry, maybe too much information but since you didn't ask before you commented, I felt the need to explain.
