Tap dance, tap dance, but now what am I?

  1. Yes, tap dance, tap dance, let the EOTH flow like water and leave a ASA on my night stand!:chuckle I am done with all of my pre-req's for nursing, all I have to do is apply this January! YIPPEE!:hatparty: But what am I? I feel like Brittney spears,:Melody: "I am not a pre-nursing student.... not quite a nursing student..." :Melody: and I feel like I will soon be sing the line about "being caught in the middle" these waiting lists are horrendous! I only need to complete nine upper devision units and I am done for my bachelors (not including the actual nursing courses of course). I am applying to two schools (that all there is around here) at the J.C. they are telling us it is a good chance that some of us that apply in Jan 06 will not get into until 2008, UGH! They take all qualifying applicants and put them in a hat.... at least at the state college they will look at my GPA and medical experience. I just wanted to do the first two years at the J.C. because it is a lot cheaper...
    What are all you on waiting lists doing while you wait for your seat?:uhoh21:

    I know the feeling. I'm right in the middle too, but I'm going to retake my Algebra, hopefully to get my GPA up.

    While I'm waiting to get accepted, I'm taking courses toward my RN-BSN bridge. I had several already from when I attended college fresh out of high school, and the ADN non-nursing courses bumped me up. Now, I only have 4 left to take, and I'm taking 2 of those in the Spring.

    Good luck to you. Whatever happens, do not give up!

    I don't know how ya'll do it with these waiting lists. I'd move if I had to. I applied at a CC with 328 people on the list. What am I suppossed to do while I wait? I haven't a clue. Luckily, TN has a million nursing schools that have no wait list. Good Luck.
