- May 4, '12 by maamcdonaldlooks like they were giving it to us straight...on to next week we go. I really think the delay is pending on logistics with the new BSN/Tarlton(?) endeavor. I mean basically this acceptance process comes down to ranking the applications on two criteria, gpa and hesi scores. Unless I'm mistaken, the background checks and verifications come after so I'm struggling to wrap my mind around the delay. Last year I can understand since they were in the middle of moving to the TR campus. My guess is that they are still trying to figure out staffing and space availability to see how many applicants they can accept. Because of the new changes underway, I'm sure there are a lot of variables they're having to consider. And the last thing they want is another El Centro type situation on their hands. That would be awful! Have you heard if the new letters have gone out yet?
I have no idea if my theory is right but at least it lessens my frustration with them. I'm sure they're working as fast as they possibly can. And they probably can't wait for the phones to stop ringing!!! lol Nice distraction there, vc. I actually laughed at a few of them...
I so wanna go shopping for nursing stuff!
- May 5, '12 by maamcdonaldI'm having a hard time focusing on finals. Thought I'd come on here and find someone online but it's looking really 'red' out there. I hope that means you're all out celebrating cinco de mayo and enjoying your weekend! About to hit up Margaritaville myself.
Anybody else noticing all the sales and free shipping on behalf of nurses week? Hope we can take advantage of all the deals this week!
- May 5, '12 by hope122That would be very nice to be able to take advantage of sales & free shipping.
I think we ALL need to cut loose this weekend and have a good time!
Next week is OUR week. Woohooo!!
- May 5, '12 by B&CsmomI think I was just so sure yesterday was the day, I was shocked all over again. Now my inner Eyore is coming out and random thoughts are running through my mind. I am really hoping they do not wait until Friday! Also, on the shopping front Amazon student has some pretty good deals. I keep waiting since it is free for six months I don't want to enroll until I am sure I will need it!
- May 5, '12 by DdiabmarzoukI feel the same way ladies, I can't seem to stay focused, I really really hope we don't have to wait til Friday :-/ it seems like we've been waiting forever :-(
- May 5, '12 by maamcdonaldI sure hope it's earlier too! I feel like I'm on a see-saw, up and positive one moment and discouraged the next. At least this part of the process will soon be over, then we can be anxious about something else. lol
Does anybody know when classes start this Fall? I think my summer school class finishes Aug 16 so maybe Monday the 20th??? B&Csmom, I've never heard of Amazon student, need to check that out!
- May 6, '12 by caitlyn181603Here we go into another week. I just wanted to share this with all of you...
“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” Walt Disney
So while we wait and the wait is difficult, at least we are living, pursuing our dreams. We've set goals and, if these goals don't come to fruition then we will figure out another reward. It will be nice to know one way or the other but, if this doesn't end up being "THE" dream for some of us then we can reassess and set our new path/goals. I'm hoping this is our week!! Good luck!!
- May 6, '12 by Virginia DSo true. This week is Nurses Week so good luck to all the nursing applicants and future nurses : )
- May 6, '12 by DdiabmarzoukThis is our week! Good luck guys! Caitlyn that was nicely put
