    hi all!

    my name is whitney, 36 and married w/4 kids. i'm in a general studies program at a local community technical college, doing pre-req's. after this semester, i only have a&p 1&2, and microbiology left to take. i tried to get into a&p this semester, but all were full so i took human biology instead, which i'm really enjoying.

    i have applied to many of the 2-year adn programs around here - they are all sort of interconnected through the state technical college system, but all of them have different requirements for admission. some you need all your pre-req's done, and get fantastic scores on the nln, and have biology and chemistry within the past 5 years, some you need to just have taken the nln.

    anyway, i currently have a 3.85 gpa, and have been asked to join the phi theta kappa honor society at my school. i am not even applying this year at the school i'm in now, since i have one class on their list i haven't taken, so they won't even consider my app.

    i just had my first interview today, and it went well. but.....there are only 16 spots in this program, and many, many applicants. (i think this must sound familiar to everyone!) i have another open house to go to at another school on saturday, and an interview after that sometime. i'm encouraged about that school, which has both ad and bs degrees in nursing. i've been in close contact with the a.d. of admissions, and so far (*knock on wood*) it seems promising!!

    i've been wanted to become an rn for a l o n g time, and now that my youngest is in school full-time, i feel it can finally be a possibility, if i get in.

    if i don't succeed in getting in this year, i may try to enter an lpn program.
    welcome whitney!

    congratulations on your gpa. here's wishing you well and pray you get accepted soon, hang in there.
