I chose to quit and the minute I did I ran to one of those easy schools the ones where you have no prereqs to get in and the minute i did it my friend who had a lower gpa than me got in and the man kept saying keep applying but i had applied so many times! But I will tell you this you can do it just keep trying and dont ever give up! I wish i'd stayed in the school where I was at, but every school is different and you will enjoy the nursing program even though it is alot of work it is so worth it!
- 0May 16, '12 by StephalumpKeep on keepin' on, sister! With your passion fueling some hard work, you'll get there and all the stress of the application game will e nothing but a story you tell to inspire new wannabe nurses.
I just received my acceptance letter in April, and I'm so happy! This is my first time applying, but ti's been a long time coming. Just one road block after another.
Your time will come and your blood, sweat, and tears will make your acceptance letter that much more exciting!
- 0May 16, '12 by Live.&.LearnDon't give up!!! I went back a few years ago after 15 years, I started applying to the Nursing program right away so I wasn't surprised the first 2 times I didn't get in because I still had to get some science classes out of the way. Anyway, I got put on the wait list 5 TIMES!!! Each denial letter was devastating and I really began to think that there must be some other reason why I wasn't getting in, my grades were pretty good. I finally decided to apply somewhere else and got put on their waitlist for this fall but a couple of weeks ago I FINALLY got a call from my school offering me a spot in the program for this summer...I started this past monday and yesterday I got a letter from the other school offering me a spot in their fall semester.
During my last interview at my school I was asked by one of the Nursing directors what I was going to do if I couldn't be a nurse, I told her that that wasn't an option, I'm going to be a nurse! One D is not going to ruin this for you, YOU CAN DO THIS!!! Don't ever give up!!! I'm sorry you lost your mom, I bet she is so proud of you Thanks for sharing your story with us and GOOD LUCK!!!
- 0May 16, '12 by marla.oliverStay inspired & never give up until you reach your goal. Your story reminded me a lot of myself, not too long ago. Like you I chose to live life and raise a family before I actually made it back to school. But, if I can do it at age 37...so can you. I tried the ADN program when I was younger, but life got in the way of school. So at 37, I went back to LVN school, and I graduated with a 4.0GPA & even made the Dean's List. The day I walked the stage and got my Diploma, was a day I will never forget. You can do it! Just keep trying and you will make it. Good Luck...
