Boo Hoo

  1. I just found out....for the BSN program I really wanted to attend, I've been waitlisted. Yes, it's ridiculously expensive, but it's sooo nice. Such a great program. She said I could save a space in their regular 2-year BSN program (I applied for the 13-month accelerated), but I declined. I don't want to have to worry about securing temporary employment during summer/winter breaks.

    This means I'm stuck with my current job until at least September, b/c this program started in June. Darn.

    I'll be applying to the accelerated BSN program at UMD that starts in September, and if for some reason I don't get in there, I'll do an A.A. program. I don't see why I wouldn't get in, though, b/c I had a 3.3 from my first degree, and I've gotten all As in my pre-reqs.

    Waaaaah. sniff, sniff.

    And I hate February. Isn't it time for spring yet???

    I feel for you. I think I might be in the same situation ... I applied for a 2nd degree BSN program (not the accelerated) but I'm scared I won't get in ... I still have to take my GRE's ... yuck

    Mel D I am sick of winter too. At least in the summer you can do some outside things to keep you busy. When I applied to nursing school many moons ago, I was waitlisted for a year.

    Thanks everyone. I feel a bit better about it now that a few hours have gone by. At least I have other options. I just hate my job so much and can't wait to quit and go to school full-time!

    Mshheaddoc, when do you expect to hear by? The school I applied to usually has their letters out in mid-January, but they still haven't finished reviewing everyone yet this year! That's how many applications they received...ugh. Well at least we know there won't be a shortage of new nurses. (From reading this boards it's more of a question of how lond we'll last in the profession after graduation.)
