I recently decided that I want to go to nursing school
. I say recently, but the fact of the matter is that it's what I've wanted to do for a long time. I took classes in high school to help prepare me for the medical field, and when I first enrolled at a university, I was a pre-nursing major.
To make a long story short, I got burned out on school, quit going, got married, started a family, and all that jazz. I started going back to school a year ago as an English major, but there was something at the back of my mind bothering me because I knew I still wanted to be a nurse.
Luckily for me, the Collin College is just a hop, skip and a jump away from me, and they offer a nursing program that seems to be a really good program. I'm going to start on my pre-reqs this fall, and I was wondering if any of you who have applied or are currently enrolled in the program have any advice.
I've looked through tons of threads, and I see people saying that it's hard; that they love it; that they heard the director is really mean; that it's impossible to get accepted.
I'd really appreciate some input from people that have actually "been there and done that" recently.
