Hello fellow nursing students!!i wanted to create a post where we can share our experiences as alternates to a nursing program that we applied to. As a current alternate myself, I find that it's extremely nerve racking and stressful while we are waiting and praying for our number to be called. If you guys have any stories or advices of yourself being an alternate, please share with the rest of us so we can feel motivated and experience hope through your stories. It doesn't matter what school or program you are, just let us know how close were you to being rejected but eventually got accepted to the program as an alternate.
