    Has anyone heard anything back yet?

    I've thought about pursuing ESE. My pre-reqs are done already for education, and I'm almost done with my AA. I've thought if I don't get into the LPN program, I can take classes towards RN in the meantime and reapply again. Honestly, I don't want to be an RN. Not right away, at least. But I have to keep myself busy!

    Dental hygienist is a great career, too. Do what you feel is best and weigh your options. Make a list of all the pros and cons of both.

    Another case of "I read it somewhere, so it must be true".

    It's things like this that make me want to throw my hands in the air and give up. Becoming a nurse is a major dream of mine and reading articles like this does nothing if not diminish what little hope I have left....What shall we do then, all work at Burger King?
    I feel like there's negativity in every profession; don't even try looking at forums! Sheesh. I wanted to be a teacher for a while, but that changed because my pre-internship teacher had nothing but bad things to say and I let that affect me. That shouldn't have bothered me in the slightest. Some people make it goal to deter and scare away others just because.

    Just go after what you want. That's what matters. Not making over 50k, not getting your "dream job" right out of school. Nobody claimed it was easy. You may have to move to start your career, I'm sure I will have to. Nothing is ever set in stone and just because an article says something doesn't make it a personal attack against you.

    Bottom line: Go for it. If you experience joy and satisfaction with it, all the better for you because that means you're in it for the long haul. You're not going to lay down and die when things get tough.

    I took my class at Orange Park Medical Center. The fee was like $55 for everything. I would go up to St. Vincent's and ask.

    Yes. It could be another month before I find out.

    I applied for the Fall '13 LPN program. I did check off nights/weekends too just in case of something comes up. If I get denied, I do plan on applying for Spring '14.

    I'm extremely anxious. I live in Clay, I got TABE exemption, and I have around 50 college credits. Got CPR certified. I just feel very unsure of myself. Also, hate waiting! Hoping everything is in my favor, tho.

    BTW I'm Lauren & new.
