it's been a long time and a lot of work finishing my pre and co-requisites. i am finally on the precipice of what i hope will be the beginning of a new journey. my application was accepted last week and now i am just waiting to hear something.
here's a bit about me... i am 44 and have 9-year-old twin girls. i work full time at a hospital in medical records and have been taking one class at a time for the last 3+ years. i am in my last co-requisite right now, which is cst 110. i have wanted to be a nurse since 1985, back when i would have graduated high school (i have a ged instead), but the timing wasn't right and i wasn't ready. i actually went to nvcc back then for a semester, when nursing was still at annandale. i went back to school in 1994, but put it away again until the fall of 2008. i am hoping the third time will be the charm for me!
who else is out there waiting with me? can we commiserate a bit? i would love to hear your stories.

I'm waiting with you!! Geez, I've been waiting since February of this year for the May 27 application deadline to pass so I can start the official countdown. I don't think I can handle another week of waiting- especially since they say at LEAST 2 weeks after May 27 is when we can expect to hear something. I'm so anxious to hear something!
Anyways, best of luck to you and the rest of the applicants. It sounds like, if anybody, you deserve it!
Hi Katie! Thanks for replying to my post. I was thinking we could kill time and let off steam while we wait. I bet you are ready to pop at this point.
Did you finish your prerequisites in the fall? Do you have all your co-requisites done too? I was going to leave CST110, but when I was waiting in line to take the TEAS (huge line on May 16) folks convinced me to get it done now.
I heard a rumor that if we watch BlackBoard, under My Organizations, you might see nursing pop up before you get an acceptance letter. It doesn't hurt to keep checking there; I've been checking.
I hope we all get in! Thanks again and hang in there
