Pre-Rn student again! Any suggestions?

  1. 0 I am really excited to join this discussion board and get advice from fellow students.
    I will try to keep a long story, short. I have done a complete 360 turnaround regarding my major. You see, it has been years that the nursing field has always been my passion and dream. I have had some major personal bumps in the road that has derailed my goal of becoming a nurse. I had received my Associates degree back when I was 42 years old, and with that had pressed on to chemistry with a B grade and human anatomy with another B grade. Here's the kicker dropped out of human physiology and received "W"grade. I panicked! Big-time. As this would give me a -5 point reduction for entering nursing school. So, I gathered my degree and transferred over to work on a bachelor's degree, which I do not have. It was last week, when I had to ask myself the question, "what do I want?" "What is important to me?" "Is this second choice major what I really want for myself?" Then it dawned on me, "no" this is not what I want... This is not what I originally set out to do for myself. So lo and behold, I marched right back into the community college today where I transferred from and explained my situation. So, I will bite the bullet and take the risk with that -5 point reduction and finish human physiology and microbiology this spring and fall and apply for nursing school hopefully in the year 2014. The reason why, I jumped aboard this discussion group is that I was so inspired and motivated by the positiveness and encouraging words that have been exchanged by students. The odds may be against me for nursing school, but I will not give up this time, and give it my very best shot as it is the only really dream that I have for myself. Thanks for listening. Keep me in your prayers with your fingers-crossed, and toes- crossed~ Woo-hoo, I'm so glad to get that all out... I feel much better now, and yet I am extremely nervous and happy to go back to human physiology! I sure hope to get an A grade in both classes, as I know, I will need it to be competitive with my other B grades. Either way, I'm going to do it, no matter what my grade is. I'm going to take a leave from the University to attend my nearby community college. I feel very relieved to be admitting this to myself. I just now need not to listen to the "dream-stealers" out there, and keep focused and stay positive. Yikes! Sorry for rambling on here...

    Good for you!!! Don't let any "dream-stealer" stand in your way and perservere. The journey has not been a piece of cake for me either with some set backs here and there, but I am following my dreams as well. I will definantly keep you in my prayers and good luck on your journey.
