Hello all, I applied for the Duquesne University School of Nursing 2nd Degree program in May of 2005 and just got my letter yesterday that I wasn't accepted. I am 4th on the waiting list. I am an accountant and I hate my job. I gave my life to Christ and felt that he led me to become a nurse. After looking at my options I applied to Duquesne. I loved what I was learning and did very good. I was one of the first to submit all of my information and they really liked my essay. I fulfilled all but one of my prerequisites for the program which would have been done this summer. My grades were pretty good A's and B's except I did get two C's. I did everything they told me to and was so ready to quit my job and become a nurse. I view this site at least 4 times a week. I watch the Discovery Channel. I assisted my sister with giving birth a few weeks ago and decided I wanted to be a labor and delivery nurse. I had to pay for each and every class and book and attend class for over a year while going to working full time and raising 4 teenagers and being active in church. Now I have to stay at this god-forsaken place and I can't get in and have to apply again and wait another year to see if I might be accepted. I feel like a total loser!
