Well, some of you might recognize my profile from the Atomic Stig. I took the HESI today. Scored a 92% in A&P, 86% in reading comprehension and grammar
, and a 76% in math. Minimum passing score for each section is a 75%. I most likely won't get in because I can't get high enough scores. I feel like I've wasted too much time. I honestly wonder if nursing is for me. I don't see any future opportunity in nursing, using my GI bill for nursing therefore forfeit its use. I wanted to look into nursing Spring 2011. I finally got a place to call my own in 2014 of Spring and enrolled in a community college for pre-reqs. Now, almost 4 years later and almost 30 years old with no 401K or retirement, I'm burned out and I feel like I'm just wasting my time.
I'm starting to see UNLV is raising the cut-off more and more. I don't think I can do this. I've wasted so much time, put so much effort and just to apply at another school that is further away and have to take another entrance exam (TEAS) that is harder than the HESI exam? **** this. I live right down the street from UNLV. They have a huge budget, enormous campus, their logos and mascott are EVERYWHERE and now I have to see that ******** everywhere I go? I ******* HATE UNLV.
I tried to find as much difficult problems as I could to do the best I could and I feel like I'm wasting my ******* time.
If I apply at NSC, I'll have to take another pre-req (Patho), I don't know if it's offered during the summer time, if it is, hopefully it's not rushed like an 4-6 week course, this school is more expensive than the community college I went to but less than UNLV by a little. I'm not even thinking about how worse nursing school could be because I'm not even in nursing school yet and that's what I'm trying to get into.
NSC cares more about grades and less about the TEAS. I think they care about you getting at least a 58% on the TEAS or a 60%, I can't remember.....
I don't think it's human nature to give up...
