Hey, I've cleared my head and decided to pursue nursing anyway


I made a thread about being rejected from a LPN program earlier this month. I cried my eyes out and felt that I had no future.

Well, I didn't want to just totally give up so I enrolled in community college again so I can finish off my pre reqs for RN. Maybe this route is best anyway. That way if I don't get accepted into one RN program I can try for others, wheras with the LPN program I couldn't do that.

My math was kinda weak, and I had not taken any math in like 3 years. I've registered for math so when I take the NET I'll be prepared.

So just thought I'd give everyone an update because I was very sad and depressed to hear I wasn't accepted into the program. I had told everyone that I was (wishful thinking) so it's embarassing to see it didnt happen for me

I appreciate all the support from everyone in the other thread. Right now I'll just attend classes and try to enjoy my life
