Hi. I have a question about ideas for references for nursing school
applications. I am a stay at home mom with four kids. My youngest just turned a year old so I haven't been very active in helping out with my kids school lately. In the past I have been a girl scout cookie mom for two years and a homeroom mom but that is about it. I guess I could ask the leader. I do not work outside the home so who would I ask for a reference?
My sister is a nurse and she thinks very highly of me but does she count as a reference? I can't really use professors at the university I attend because I mainly take on-line classes so I do not know the professors. I am taking A & P now for the summer and I do have to go into class for testing but I am pretty sure the professor will not give out a reference until after the class is over. Should I wait to apply to nursing school until after my A & P class is over? I do have a 4.0 GPA and I just passed the NET. I am looking to apply now for entrance into the Fall of 2008 session. I also have a great friend of my husband and I who is a doctor and another sister of one of my closest friends who is a professor at my university but she has never taught me. My husband thinks I should ask them for a reference. Too bad my kids are too young to write references for me. I have been working hard for them for all these years. It is frustrating. How am I going to come up with professional references when I haven't worked for nine years?
