    Welcome. Glad you could join us in our madness!!!

    About the essay - think of all of the wonderful experience that you have had as a stay at home mom that is relevant to nursing.
    You must be an expert in time management. You know your child development and have helped a child grow and nutured them. You're speciality is handling conflict among different people. You know about life's stresses and probably handle stress in appropriate ways. You are aware of the importance of proper nutrition and the role it plays in development of our bodies. So when writting your essay focus on your strengths. And no - I've never heard of anyone not getting in based on their essay. But I do know people who didn't have the highest GPA but their essay pushed them over the top. So - good luck. Let us know what happens!!!!!
