I just need more encouragement or experiences from people who failed out TWICE and now working as a nurse. I'm at rock bottom. It gets discouraging hearing no after no. I tried appealing to retake the class, but that was a waste of my time. I emailed nursing programs around my area to see if they’ll accept students who previously failed out another program. Only about 1 or 2 said they would and they’re both ADN programs. I’m still hesitant on applying to those ADN programs.
I just wish I can pick up where I left off at another program. I was literally a semester away from graduating. I have all these nursing courses with nothing to show for it. Some days I feel motivated and ready to take what’s mine by force but other days I feel down thinking about my situation.
Anyway, I don’t want this post to turn into a pity party. I don’t need anyone telling me they feel sorry for me lol. I know nursing is what I want to do. My vision is much clearer now after failing. I already created my personal plan of success after analyzing where I went wrong. I’m ready to begin a nursing program somewhere ASAP!!! The longer I wait around, the less motivated I become.

If you can get in an ADN program, do it. It looks like your only option right now. There are literally hundreds of RN-to-BSN programs you can look at after licensure. Get the license. Everything else is gravy.

It may not be ideal, but go for the ADN program. Stick it out- do your thing and go back for the BSN. School isn't for everyone and I have seen so many close friends of mine fail out in the last semester. The struggle academically is no reflection of you as a nurse! Not everyone tests well
If you have the dedication to stick it out- I have no doubt that you will make an incredible nurse. Do what you have to, and you'll be so proud of yourself in the end. (Plus, id hate for you to regret walking away from the opportunity to be a nurse.)
you got it!

Just curious, but why are you hesitant on applying to ADN programs? Many of them aren't as competitive as BSN programs and it seems like it'd be your best bet at this point. Like someone else pointed out, there are tons of bridge programs to apply for once you have your ADN.
