Hi everyone, I would really appreciate some help on this matter.I am an applicant who is trying to get into nursing school (BSN programs). I was originally pre-PA and was trying to get into a physician assistant program, however I was not accepted. I always had a mindset that I was going to pursue nursing as a "plan B" incase I am not able to make it into PA school. I do like the career field, and I am not going into it blindly; my parents and some relatives were nurses, so I understood the hardships but also rewards the career had to offer. I also know that nursing opens up so many avenues (NP, CRNA, administration, teaching, etc) So currently, I am a bachelors degree holder who is trying to get into a BSN program. When I write a personal statement and/or answer questions that ask about personal details (one of them is an accelerated program that is asking details about my bachelors degree and asking about what lead me to career change), should I mention that I originally was Pre-PA and that I failed to get in? Should I deny that I was pre-pa at all? At the time being, I have resolved to explain that "AFTER college, I decided to switch into nursing due to the ______, etc." Which is true; after college, as I worked as an ER scribe, I became even more assured that nursing can be a secure and overall rewarding job and switched into nursing. I just don't know how I should address the "originally being pre-pa", or if I should mention it at all. thanks.
