I made it...pre-nursing student gets admitted into ASN program!

  1. Have two long years of working hard I finally was admitted to the nursing program at Fairmont State University (aka Pierpont)...very nervous and have the summer to emotionally prepart myself to be ready in the Fall...anyone with any suggestions or encouragement for me, please reply. Also, I am a male student entering a ASN program...will I have additional difficulties?

    Let me be the first to congratulate you! Nursing school is exciting, scary, fun, hard work, terrifying... you'll love it. Some guys have said that they feel they have a difficult time in SOME aspects of the whole experience, specifically in OB and Peds. My DBF is an LPN and he told me his program was amazing and he always felt welcomed by students and staff alike. I have had two fellow male students. Can't speak much for either of them because they both had problems right from the beginning though... not showing up for clinical got one of them kicked out first week of this semester.

    Hope it will be a positive experience for you!

    i'm a little less nervous than i was a couple of weeks ago...just have a lot of things to get ready during the summer like immunizations, physical, background check, etc....got a couple of things done though; like cpr training...so i think if i just pace myself i'll get things done...one step at time, just like i did when preparing to get into the program..i'm very exited though and determined...thanks for your comments!
