- Jul 1, '11 by stella2570I appreciate your words more than I can say. I was denied a week ago and it just about killed me. I wasn't sure how to go on. I have work SO hard and can't believe that it isn't paying off. My heart was heavy for a bit but now I am working to figure out what I can do for future applications. I am waiting on a meeting date with the nursing director. I will not give up!! My strength has been challenged and NOW it is time to rise to the occasion as I always do. THANKS for your encouragement...I actually cried ; )
- Jul 1, '11 by wewe12Last time i read this post and I connected with it and also posted my experience. I got rejection letters six times. one from my current school and the other from different schools. i will tell you people, Never give up. If this is what you turly want to do never give up. keep your faith and keep trying. sometimes if things is not going on right, it just means that it is not yet your time. your time will surly come. After six rejections, My time came. I got a call just last month that brought me great joy. I got accepted into my current school's Nursing program. i will be starting this fall.
so Friends Please do not give up. Have Faith in GOD. Your time will come.

I'm 17 and I applied to study Child Nursing at university and I got 3 rejections. When I got all my 3 rejections, I thought to myself "that's it. No more uni place for me" but then I got 1 place at a good uni and 1 place at one of the best nursing school's in the UK (: this has been a blessing in disguise and taught me a very important lesson. Never to give up and never to loose faith.
- Jul 15, '11 by hbladybugThank you so much for writing this! I've been looking for someone who has experienced what I'm going through right now. I am currently on a waiting list and really stumped on what my next move I should make. I have a Bachelor's Degree already and I'm feeling my education is more of a deterrent then help. I'm being penalized at community colleges for having too many units so I'm unable to register for the prerequisite sciences I need.
Has anyone ever taken classes through "Integrated Science Programs"? Are they transferable to a RN program or just LVN? I'm also applying at private colleges for LVN and RN, RN is harder to find as ADN. I don't care to get another Bachelors degree but it's looking like I may have to to get my RN.
Has anyone else had these issues? Any suggestions?
I'd really appreciate your help.

Go for the accelerated BSN, no question. Don't beat yourself up over getting another bachelor's degree. The BSN will open more doors for you in nursing, not to mention that it is increasingly the preferred entry point into the profession. With a prior bachelors degree, you will have the BSN in a year with the accelerated option. That is better than spending 2 years on an ADN and having a disadvantage right out of the gate (not to mention having to go back for BSN later).
As for having too many credits already to enroll at a community college for prereqs, that is new to me. Try taking courses at a 4 year college instead or online. Might be more money but at least you know it may work. Good luck!
- Jul 16, '11 by EhKim86Thanks Paco! That definitely did help. I am guilty of stressing myself out over things that I have no control over and have learned more about myself by going back to the community college in order to go through an accelerated BSN program. It's been tough because of all the budget cuts and it's near impossible to get in to classes without several years and credits under your belt. Then, I worry about how competitive nursing schools are with admissions and how tough it's going to be. Hopefully everything will work out for the best! Your own situation truly inspires me. Good luck with the program and keep us updated!
- Jul 18, '11 by TheDreamJourneyYou are absolutely right. No one should ever give up on their childhood dreams. I am still trying to get accepted into a nursing program. Sometimes I feel like giving up but I can't see myself working in another field. I realized that I need to make myself stand out from other applicants. So, in 2 weeks i'm starting a CNA program so that I can get more experience in the health-care field!! No one should ever give up! Keep applying, a school will accept you eventually. Stay focused and keep your eye on the prize!
