Hi All,

I haven't been on here most of the Summer - spending lots of time working on my Nutrition Course, being with the kids, etc. I found out in May that out of over 400 applicants at my school they only had 40 slots for the Fall and I didn't get one of them. I came in as the 9th alternate and was told there was a slim chance that an opening might come up -so I tried to stay positive and hope for the best. But honestly, it was disappointing and I hated telling family and friends that I didn't get one of the slots.

The ADN Program starts mid-August and I heard that last Monday they were having orientation and lunch for the new Nursing Students and I figured that was that - I'd have to reapply, take the entrance exam, etc. all over again next year and the thought of that was pretty depressing (it's a very long, stressful admission process). Unbelievably, Thursday I received my Acceptance Letter in the mail for the Fall 2004 Nursing Program. I can only assume that someone declined at the last moment. I was absolutely thrilled but shocked and stunned and was afraid that they had sent the letter to me by mistake (always the optimist - that's me, ha, ha).. Anways, I got a one- on-one orientation the other day, signed up for classes, ordered my uniforms and luckily still have a few weeks before classes start to get prepared for all of this.

For anyone out there still waiting to hear something from their school - don't give up hope, you just might get some Good News... This has been a dream of mine for 20 years and I can't believe it's finally happening. I'm thrilled to be joining the rest of you this Fall - see you in class.. SusanNC

I'm glad to hear that you will be going to school this fall. I know how it is waiting that long for something that you always wanted to do. I know I start right out of high school. Stopped because of personal reasons and didn't decide to go back until 10 years later to right my wrong and reach my goal of becoming a nurse. I start this Fall also and I am very excited I have my orientation on 8/12 can't wait to get all the information that they have for us.

I know just how excited you are because I am on the same cloud with you.

Congradulations and best of luck to you, :rotfl: :) :rotfl: :) :rotfl: :)
