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

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

Yju, no worries internet stranger. It is hard not to feel let down and I'm glad you're pursuing the Part time option. I truly believe the universe has a bigger plan for each of us. Life has a way of working out just the way it should ❤️

Congratulations @Ashley N !! 

Thanks nursegal! Same to you. I am so happy we get to find out quickly after whether or not we got in. I don't think I could handle another 2 month wait. Good luck at the interview, I bet you're going to do amazing! Here's to hoping we both get in 🤞🏻

Yessss I manifested this into my life. I keep saying, "when I get in." I have had this plan for the past few years and it's finally falling into place. Has anyone been prepping for the interview? I have been reading online and watching Youtube videos.

Forreal...the anticipation is killing me.

32 are going to accepted out of 40. A coworker of mine didn't even show up to the interview because he was accepted elsewhere. Bumps up our chances a bit, even if it's by just one person.

 

Good luck!

@Mommash I also did not get accepted. However I have a spot as an alternate. So there's still hope. 🤞

There is still hope for you @PYRMDZ . I wish you the best and hope that you gain a seat for April.

@Mommash I asked about being an alternate and I was told they did not offer alternate spots. Eustania said they only have two options. ( accepted or not accepted. Maybe she didn’t want to hurt my feelings. 
Either way I’ve accepted their decision and maybe it’s just not meant for me to attend that particular school.

You know...the biggest soul searching/getting back up was the hardest part these past weeks. To those that in, congratulations again and we could not be so much happier for you. To those that encouraged us to get back up and keep a positive mindset...thank you again. 

I really am starting to believe failure or getting denied is just a huge part of life that will make us stronger or weaker. Yeah I'm not saying it's easy...but dang I realized I needed to be more grateful and reflect on how much far we've come. I remember that day after getting that phone call, I admit I cried in the med room. You know the most beautiful thing my charge RN and my manager reminded me? They rather get a GOOD LPN that can handle the stress, med passes, time management, and resilience than an RN that's arrogant or beating to their own drums without any regards (with all due respect of course). I realize I'd rather face setbacks and grow from it then getting it easy and lose where we came from. I'm certainly not saying be complacent and give up.....

Action wise....yeah I have already submitted my applications to other schools. I never been more driven and truthfully angrier/hungrier than ever before. Not for the title or the money in the end...but how much of a value I can be as a nurse and willing to grow from it. I mean...yeah I took the denial personally. I unfortunately tend to have the curse of not forgetting easily (but im trying I promise LOL). Would I reapply to the same school and maybe change their minds? I don't know to be honest. If I did get into another school eventually...then sure it helps me move on I guess. Should I hold a grudge against them? Definitely not. Even though it puts a bad taste in my mouth, IF they let me in...then so be it. I will move on past from that and will give it my all to whoever that took a chance on me. 

I gotta admit....being a CNA for 4 years before have taught me that I do need to be more grateful and stop being so hungover on one denial. Would we rather be crappy RN's one day...or the denials have helped us even be more compassionate and motivated. After all....alot of nurses ARE getting burned out and walking away from the profession more recently.

From that...I realized that I do want to rejoin the military as a nurse corp officer. I realized from this setback, I can be more humbled and learn to serve the staff more. We WILL get into a school that's according to the higher plan and destiny (with all due respect of course). 

To those that got in or those that chose a different school...regardless of what it may be...I truly wish to hear yall's stories and have a beer and laughing about this life journey one day. I truly believe ALL of us will become RN's one day as long as we get back up and fight for our individual dreams. 

Thank you for reading this essay. LOL

PS. I've heard many stories...but in the end, it was my mom's journey who inspired me. Did you know she was a CNA for 17 years here in the US and took the NCLEX-RN 11 times?! She passed her PN NCLEX the 3rd time first (she didn't go to school here in the US).  She was an ICU RN in Korea, but we immigrated here and she had to put food on the table somehow...she told me if she did it, anyone can do it if they just don't give up. Now she's a nurse manager. She laughed at my first school denial knowing it's just gonna make me grow.
