How Do You Overcome the Emotional Scars?

Published

Thanks to persons on this forum who thought I was not crazy for still loving nursing after I have failed two nursing schools. In one school, you could only repeat one course and another it was two courses the max.

However, I did not through neglect but from working real hard on my job and I a middle-aged.

I want to start over but my past is still there haunting me and I feel just aweful. What can I do to rebuild myself? I've thought about starting over in the clinical and only using my first school's transcripts and not the second where I was slaughtered. I also feel I would be doing myself an unjustice because I had finished almost 95% of my clinicals when I failed (8 wks to go before graduation).

What advice do you have to offer.

I wish you the best as you go forward. I would caution you though about being selective with what transcripts you show. Most schools I've been to require that you send them a transcript from every school (past high school) that you've attended. I did attend one school that wanted transcripts just from the past 10 years....but that was it....you had to send everything from those 10 years. Picking and choosing what you send to a school would be construed as lying and will likely get you kicked out of school.

Peace,
