    Prinsessa,

    Don't be scared!! The ultimate goal is to become an RN. I will admit that I didn't think I would get into UIC because it's my 1st choice and I need a Bachelors to get to where I need to be yet my luck is so bad, but I was prepared (funny enough) to apply to cc's- where I was told I was a shoe-in. But I DIDN'T CARE. Not to say that one doesn't want a better route, but I was just prepared to have to take a diffent route. I did my essay the way that I did because that's what I felt. Just seemed so cold to answer #1...#2... But each has to do there own style. Just do you- than don't worry anymore. There's always more than one way to skin a cat, hence it's the end result that truly matters.

    I am applying to CCs. I would rather get a BSN right away instead of having to go back to school to do RN-BSN. A BSN will talk me the same amount of time anyway since I already have all my pre-reqs (besides Organic Chem and Micro). I plan on going to graduate school later. I know I will get in somewhere, but I will be diappointed if I don't get into UIC. I would apply to more BSN programs, but all of them have so many different pre-reqs. I know I am going to drive myself crazy worrying until I get in somewhere.

    Prinsessa, did you think about applying to Rush too? I'm in the same boat as you. When I started looking at 2 year programs at cc's I noticed that I had all the prereqs for the BSN program that would take me the same 2 years to complete! So, I was just beginning my application for Rush as a second choice, but then I got the acceptance to UIC. The only extra class you need for Rush is Statistics (but you have until the start of class Fall 2007 to get that in).

    Hello , My name is Karen and I'm from Birmingham , England. I am so pleased I just wanted to tell someopne that I got accepted by the university of Wolverhampton to study a diploma in adult nursing. Sooooooo!!! Chuffed!!!:spin: :spin: :spin: :spin: :spin: :spin:
    Anyway I wanted to post info about interviews and how my interview was.I had to write a essay and do a numeracy test for which the interviewer said I did very well on the essay and 9 out of 10 for the numeracy. Then they asked me questions like why I wanted to be a nurse and why I wanted to do adult nursing and what I think was the role of a nurse.They asked what I was doing for the last 3 months and if I had any outside interests. I would like to know how any body elses interviews went and how they answered the questions. By the way I am a recent biochemist graduate.

    KUMAN,
    1st of all CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!
    I don't know what to tell you as I didn't have to go through an interview. But, I can offer this- ask yourself the questions first and the rest will follow. Be honest with yourself. Why do you want to be a nurse? Reach back to that 1st thought that made the decision for you. And WRITE IT DOWN. I keep journals, miscellaneous notes on every part of my life and it helps. Sometimes when I read different entries I wonder "what was I thinking" at the time. Yet, if I ever needed to write anything pertaining to any of those topics, I could. And it would sound truly genuine because it is.

    I might apply to Rush, but it is really expensive. I already have Statistics, so I don't think I need any other classes. I will have to look at their pre-reqs again. Thanks for the suggestion!
