So I'm having dejavue... this is what kept me from the nursing program 10 years ago!!!
I am 32 years old and I am going back to college and getting my nursing license finally
. Right now I'm getting all the prerequisites taken care of but my ultimate problem is that I don't have my immunization records from when I was a child. I know I had all my shots, I just can't prove it! I contacted my mother several years later (when we started speaking again) and brought up my shot records with her. My mother is quite adamant that she gave it to me but I don't have it. After much back and forth I dropped it and let go of my desire.
I'm not so much a pushover now and I want my darn nursing lic
. So the counselor and WNC college told me I'd have to get my shots redone and to contact a health nurse. So I've done that and was told I'm too old for most shots & that they only do 18 years and under. She was quite nice, but unhelpful and referred me to another office. So I called them, talked to a nurse and she didn't even know what I'd be able to get, what I'd need for the nursing program or what they'd even cost me. She was utterly unhelpful and I'm frustrated. I've even contacted my old high school in CA to see if I can get a copy. Of course I graduated in '95 (dark ages as far as they are concerned) and they can't help me.
Can someone please enlighten me and let me know what I'd need as far as shots go now, how much I'd need (ie a series of the same shot over a period of time) & what's required for someone in my position? I live in Northern Nevada (I'd assume that's a factor). What ever information you have is a HUGE HELP
! I don't want to give up again and I feel STUCK
Thank you for your time in reading this and responding. Again, I greatly appreciate it!
