I have been getting all my pre-reqs, teas test, application etc in order to apply to a nursing program and I was reviewing my documents and now find out that I have to have 3 Hep B shots in addition to seropositivity determination. This process is a 6-8 month process. The application period for the Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 programs are April 15th and July 20th. Which means, there is no way I will have the complete shot panel done, moving my potential start date to no earlier than Fall 2014! I have been waiting so long to finally get to apply and accepted or on my way for the last 5 years and now to find out that I may have to wait another 1.5 years to even apply which will be the Fall 2014 or Spring 2015! Ugh!!! Any suggestions? Does anyone know if the schools will allow you to be complete with 2 out of the 3 shots? I am so frustrated! It seems that everywhere I turn, there is another complication standing in my way of being coming a nurse. I am no spring chicken and do not have the luxury of waiting around to start another career. I was laid off in October, so now is the time to figure this out. I took the TEAS today and got 78.7. So bummed that I missed another 5 points on the points system that I needed by 1.3% (one question) and the same went for my science grade. I missed another 5 points by .08 of a point
I feel like this is not with the stress!
