advice on nursing school???!!


I am a junior at a 4 year private university right now. I wanted to be a nurse but the nursing department at my school are full and I would not be able to get in. So I decided to do the 1 year accelerated nursing after I graduate in 2013. This summer, I applied to a nursing school in my hometown and I just received my acceptance letter to transfer next semester. I am so confused on what to do now because I don't want to leave my school since that's where all my friends are at. I am also scared to start in a new environment and that I might not make any new friends. The nursing school is very small and I am transferring in spring so it might be harder to find friends. Also, What if I end up not liking nursing? I am already a junior so if I transfer I might have to graduate in 2014 or later instead since I just now changed my major. Anyone have any advice that can help me out?

How long would you have to wait to get into the program at your university? If you follow through with the 1 year accelerated program, i suggest you continue on through with BSN because you would benefit a whole lot than the 1 year program.

The fact that you've been accepted in a program, I would run with that. I understand your fear of not knowing anyone or afraid that it will take a while to make friends, but other than one or so person, I know of no one that is starting the program with me. You will make friends, because you'll have a common thread of surviving nursing school! So you may not graduate the month/year you thought, but seriously - you got in somewhere! Go!
