You're so sweet!
What's your story CT? Have you applied anywhere?
Thank you. My story hu? Well I am an "old" lady who after years of stopping and starting the nursing track finally said, I don't want to go to my grave regretting that I didn't fulfill my dream..and so, on a whim, I drove myself to the closest school that had an LPN course and took their "entrance" exam. Surprised myself since its been eons since I've been in school. I've taken college courses only as recent as the early 2000's. Around here its tough getting intothe Nursing programs, need current Sciences, mine are old, and tons of pre-reqs.
So beginning March 12th, I will be an LPN student at a private Tech school here in CT. It'll be a long hard 15 months but on June 13, 2008 (cross those fingers, toes, eyes, and legs) I'll graduate and be able to sit for the NCLEX. Plan on working about a year (taking a College Chem..again..since my Chem is too old to use) then applying to another local Hospital that has a Nursing College. Hopefully I'll get my RN and from there, my dream job is NICU.
Let us know the outcome! I'll be sending out positive vibes for you!
