    I feel the exact same way. I told my husband that when my letter came I felt really relieved, but now I am terrified. I said the same thing about finally figuring out what I wanted to do when I grew up and now it is starting and it a little overwhelming. Like my life is about to totally change(in a good way) but still change is hard. I am scared about everything: will I be able to get through this, will I(we) survive financially, am I going to be a good nurse? I am also so excited, I feel blessed that I have this opportunity. Last year I turned my life upside down in order to go back to school. I quite my job and took out a ton of student loans in order to help support my family while I was in school. I put all my eggs in one basket and banked on getting into nursing school. So far everything is going as planned(except one little hiccup in the application period that added a semester onto my time in school), and I am so thrilled it is all working out.

    Oh wow...it all sounds so familiar Amber & Nurturing. And, get this...I'm 52! I also turned my life upside down recently. My midlife crisis/transition was all about finding myself again. I too am so excited & nervous. Pouring that energy into pounding out A's for all my classes. I never, ever have been a straight A student in my life! I love school...unimaginable! I've been told that I'm all but a sure bet for the "letter" NLT the end of March for nursing school set to begin Fall '07. That means that I'll get my RN when I'm 55! At this point I'm even considering the BSN, although will have to decide if it's worth pursuing since we live in a rural area. Don't you just love it when dreams come true?

    I got my letter today (and from my first choice yeah!!!). I had gotten tired of checking the mail and calling the schools to ask when do they send out their acceptance/rejection letters. Finally when I'd stopped stalking the school of nursing, I find out that I got in. Yeah!!!! In january the hard stuff begins.

    Hey everyone, I started this post and wanted to update, I was placed on the alternate list. But I called admissions and my rep told me about an Earn As You Learn program with a local hospital where they pay for your school and books but need to commit for 2 years. Well, I interviewed the next day and as of right now, I start 1/8/07, I can't wait. I've gotten all my vaccinations, physicals, tests, supplies in order and now it is a waiting (and reading in advance as much as possible in my med surg book) game. Congrats to all.

    Congrats to everyone that's finally in! Your stories are so inspirational! Hopefully I can join you guys soon! Can't wait to make the move from "pre-nursing" to actual nursing student! I am playing the waiting game for Fall 2007. I applied back in October but applications aren't due until Jan. 15th so I can start freaking out then. I finished up all my required classes now for the BSN program so I will have nothing to take in spring! I'm going to be obsessing with nothing else to think about! I applied to the ADN program at my current school and a BSN program. I'm hoping to get into the BSN program since I have all the required classes finished and it would take the same amount of time to get either degree. But it's in God's hands now. I'm scared to death because I'm an A/B student, not a 4.0, so I'm not even sure if I have a fighting chance! :uhoh21: I should know by Feb. for the BSN program if I am even being considered! They do interviews in Feb. I'm just going to try not to think about it until the time comes! (Like that is even possible! LOL!)
