Well hi there! I was just reading up on forums and just happen to see your post pop up! 
 

I did apply for the full time bridge program one. In Fact, im hawking over my phone in the med room just waiting for the dang phone call. 

 

I emailed Stania yesterday and she said she will start calling today. 
 

its nerve racking for sure. I really want to become an RN now. 
 

does it really start April 4th? I kept thinking it starts during Winter quarter!

Hi yju225!  Thanks for the update. 🙂 that's really good news. she's actually starting a day earlier than what was posted online. I hope the both of us get a phone call today. 🙂  Please keep me posted. and best wishes to you!

Yes, it was posted online that classes would start Apr 4 2021. I'm sure everything is probably subject to change though.

side note: I had a dream last night I was accepted into the program. I woke up and was like WAIT I haven't even been interviewed (laughs hysterically) The brain never ceases to amaze me.

I wish I didn't have to type this, but I actually got denied. 

I will be looking for another school or even try again for the part time bridge opening up in January. It sucks but what can I do? Came too far to quit. 

I am truly happy for u for reals and congrats!

I made it to the interview as well. Anyone have any idea what the interviews are like?

Hello, Congratulations on being selected for an interview. : ) No, I don’t have much information on what the interviews are like. Some of the older threads said it wasn’t bad at all and it wasn’t long. 
 

Good evening! 
I will be at interviews next month for the full time bridge program! Two people that graduated from my program will also be there.

I got my letter today and look forward to moving one step closer to following my dream! Good luck to you all that got in and to those who didn't, don't give up. This is a minor setback and you WILL make it.

I hope I am not intruding or being a nuisance on this forum even though I got denied. I kept getting the comment email and just couldn't resist venting out in a healthy way. I mean...I am a psych nurse so LOL.

 

Yeah it's been truly a tough week. So much up and down on my emotions and it's actually pretty annoying actually. 

I am actually applying for the Olympic College lpn-BSN program now. Im actually almost done with their application and it's looking a little more...favorable for my current situation (grades, etc.). I take their accuplacer reading test on Dec 3rd and have to get their certain scores (info is on their website).  And just to show any committee that I want to improve, I did sign up for classes (Chinese 1, sports psychology, and intro to math just for fun) for GPA improvement and show that I'm not just sitting around the house.

Putting my butt-hurt emotions and pride aside...I'll still put in the part time application opening up in January for Pierce. 

And to whoever that may read this...Green River College is establishing their LPN-BSN program soon.I don't mind sharing information because I do not look at other LPN applicants wishing to get into a program as competition. I look at them as fellow nurses and hopefully be encouraged if in the same situation as I am and never giving up.
