    When I was younger, maybe 5-7 years old, I had dreamed that I was present at my great-grandmother's passing. I thought I was there at the hospital with family members watching my great-grandmother lay there very quiet. I could tell that she was ready to go and then nurses started coming into the room telling us to leave the room.

    Then there was another time I dreamed of my aunt's boyfriend's passing. I was watching him have an asthma attack, trying to reach the phone to call for help and I felt really bad that I couldn't help him. I told my aunt and my grandmother how I envisioned them passing (years later, of course) and they said I was dead on but I wasn't there at the two's passing.

    I haven't had any dreams like those since then.

    22 going on 23 and in my first semester of pre-reqs. Definitely not too old to pursue Nursing or any other major. As long as it's what's best for you and your future, go for it.

    I am also taking only two classes per term. Also studying to CLEP a few so that it will be a bit quicker and lessen my load towards the program. Plus, I'll be able to dedicate my time to A&P when it comes time to take it. Determined to ace those courses.

    Same situation but I graduated in 08..!! I ended up having my son in 2011 and it hit me that I need to get it together for myself and the sake of my son.. I'm 22 and ready for the journey! Best wishes to everyone!!
    Same exact boat! Graduated in 08 and messed up my first year of CC. Took a break, had my son in 2011, became a certified pharm tech, and working in the pharmacy now. Felt that it was a good time to go back to school and work towards my ADN/BSN. I'm starting from rock bottom with pre-reqs but have a better mentality then when I did fresh out of HS.

    Returning back to school after figuring out that I wanted to become an RN. Going PT until I can get back FA due to messing up my first year there. Have to pay out-of-pocket until then. Luckily I was able to get a $500 Fresh Start scholarship thru my CC. So I have a long way to go until I'm done with pre-reqs.

    Fall 12:
    Comp I (online - 2nd 8 weeks)
    Medical Terminology

    Studying to CLEP the majority of my pre-reqs so that I can focus all on my science courses and to finish pre-reqs quicker as well.

    How was your schedule looking like (how many credit hours)? I'm sure they could have asked if you could take one/two of your courses in the Spring term. Getting your CNA certification is important as well. It would give you experience once you found a job in the field plus an income while going to NS. Sorry to hear that they dropped you. I would contact them and ask about re-enrolling if you decide to drop one or two courses that you could do in the Spring.

    Thanks, panjia. So what will you be doing in the meantime until then? Taking courses that will fulfill the gen. eds for your BSN later down the line?

    Is Valencia highly competitive for entrance into their concurrent program? I see that you need a minimum of 2.5 overall GPA but I'm sure all those that were accepted had higher GPAs than that.

    Hello,

    Has anybody taken a CNA program while doing some pre-reqs? The CNA program is 7 credit hours. I'm thinking of taking two, or three courses so I'm not so behind in completing my bachelors. How many classes would you suggest taking?
    Will be taking CNA courses in the Spring term and will also be taking pre-reqs along with it. Advisor thought it would be best for me to get my CNA license and work in the field to get more points towards admission into the RN program.
