I have pondered this question for several weeks now. I recently moved from the midwest to the east coast, with the hope of continuing school. I was enrolled in the first year of a BSN program and was to start clinicals last Fall. Well we moved to the east coast and I have yet to get into a program, but not for lack of trying. I have researched the BSN route, the ADN route and the diploma route...any route will get me where I want to go. It is so maddening, but all schools seem to require those extra one or two classes that your last school did not require, therefore keeping you from evening applying. I was given an alternate status at the CC and am waiting to hear if a seat opens up, but the other avenues aren't working either. I'm taking a philosophy course (required by two programs) and the first night we were taught as human beings we judge with head and heart....well my head says move on, but my heart says hang on...I could just cry right now. I have been out of school full-time for about 10 months, but the thought of waiting another year just seems like plain torture.
