    I just wanted to add my 2 cents to the on-going conversation.

    I have been told in person by 2 admissions officers, at 2 different campuses, that
    there is indeed no longer a wait list at least at their respective campuses.
    They have not been able to fill all the spots for next Spring, which is why they
    have added yet another application period. One officer told me that they only
    got 5 applications for the day program and 10 applications for the evening program
    during the May-June application period.

    I myself do not have a 4.0 and have gotten a verbal acceptance
    for the Spring 2010 day program.

    I hope it is true for you and your fellow upcoming and future nursing students....and I do not eat my young or nursing students...but I know for a fact of people that are still on the waiting list. for Lincoln and warwick. day and evening...
    I was on the waiting list since lets see spring of 2005 or 2006 and just got my call to join for this last spring... I already graduated and got my licence. that is a long wait. I know they do not do the official wait list which is a shame in way... because for those that have maybe a 3.0 or less they are almost out of luck to get in to nursing school...
    Just because you get a C or B in anatomy and physiology does not mean you are going to do poorly in nursing classes so don't let any of the instructors tell you that.
    I made a C in both and did completely fine in my nursing classes. Of course now you have to make a B or better.

    If you don't get in there than try some of the other places. there are scholarships out there as well as grants and loans.

    im glad you found it funny...when you are studding hard in those really hard nursing classes and you are feeling a little stressed out you can come back and look at this and have a nice lol.:heartbeat and believe me you will have those moments. even the best students are stressed but its not a reason to give up just remember that when you think you should.

    just remember this.

    I know Im not God and never presented my self as him. I never made the impression that I was prefect ether so I dont know were you are coming off that way. If you know anything about the economy now you would know there are a lot of RN's that are out of work do to hiring freezes and such. I hope you and everyone else never have to go through that stress when you are ready to join the work force.
    If I was God I would make it that my husband was home and not off in Iraq fighting a war that seems it would never end. That my kids would be happy all the time instead of stressed and heart broken over there father being gone.
    And I even would wish that you were in the nursing career that you are dreaming and working on.

    Well you should try it first crazensweet. At least try nursing 1 and 2 to see how it is. I dont know If I will like it either, but even if If I dont, It sure pays better than my 10 dollars an hour. Now that I think of it, i don't think I've ever liked any job I had. The only time I liked my jobs was when I talked to friends on the job.

    Have you ever taken the type of test that tests your intersts?
    We all dream of other things maybe raising kids or being a rock star.
    It seems to me that you would be a good nurse because Ive read some of your other
    posts and you seem to have a carring spirit that makes a good nurse.
    If you question if it is something you will like you can always shadow a nurse or become a CNA or Home health aid. That is a good way to get your feet wet. I was one since 1989. I loved it. But its not for everyone.
    Also does Kent hospital have that program that if you are a employee for them you get bumped to the head of the line to get into nursing school. I know they worked with CCRI to do the snap program but I dont think that program did so well. Did it do well? Did they have a good class graduate?

    Thanks both of you!!
    I have shadowed the Nursing V class about 4x this past spring at kent, It was nice. Just about once a month I bug the advisors at the lincoln campus, and I leave feeling more confused. I went and took that test it wasnt really specific just said "helping people".
    You make a mistake and you could kill someone or hurt them seriously, I know your trained that may never happen but still......
    I do this I freak myself out ALL THE TIME. In Anatomy by midterm my grade was an A I was still nervous.
    In Micro I was doing great and just got up look around and thought "Do I want to do this?" and didnt go back.
    I'm taking a business leadership course this semester on a whim, why? I have no idea.
    I envy people that are passionate about something.
    Then their are those that have natural gifts and abilities.
    I'm tired of shifting with the wind.
    I want to stand still somewhere for something.
    I know I'm probably not making any sense lol see just confused

    Well then It sounds like you have your ducks in a row since you shadowed someone...you know I had those moments of walking out of class and never coming back in fact I did that the first time I took Anatomy. She was an awful instructor. I walked out of her class and took a W for the class. It took me a year to get up the courage and take it again. Nursing to me is one of the coolist careers you can go into. If you dont like one thing you can go into a completely diffrent direction. I love working in the hospital but if that doesnt work out you can go into forensic science like CSI there is so many things you can do. I love home care to. You will learn in nursing school how to be safe and that will stick with you forever. you can go into politics at a nurse and stand for other nurses. You can even be a part of the Board of Nursing for your state and help make the practice acts. There are so many directions in nursing.
    Good luck with your choice.
    I think you should go into nursing.
