Waitlisted? Rejected? NEVER Give Up! - page 6

I woke up this morning feeling inspired. My first thought was that it had to do with the fact that as of yesterday afternoon I found myself deciding between admission offers from two accelerated BSN... Read More

    sorry you had to go through that ladypat, but as these ladies have said your time will come and it will then be the right time. It's just meant for some of us to experience this rejection. It makes us stronger and more appreciative I think. So, be strong and stay positive.
    Please note that the OP is NOT a lady ...

    Truly inspiring to me! I have worked hard to get to the A student I am today! I was just rejected from LPN school yesterday and I have to tell you I thought I was reading my death sentence! I have all generals done great TEAS test scores great gpa now and 6 years at the same nursing home as a CNA and still rejected! I felt I fit all qualifications all As and one B on required courses for the program but because some were repeats due to failure in my past and withdraws from science courses in my past I did not get in. I feel it is so unfair they are judging me upon what I did two years ago. That don't look at the fact I turned myself around back then I lacked confidence was dealing with depression a single mother of three no help from father working sometimes two jobs to survive and on top of that trying to fit school in. I had a teacher tell me since I had to repeat a and p 2 I would never be a nurse and that hurt. I took it recently at a better healthier point in my life and passed with a high A! I still you rejected and I think what if she was right? My employers say I'm smart and would make a fine nurse and my residents say the same my family and friends believe in me but the dean that did not accept me didn't as far as she is concernred I am just a piece of paper and a person with a past she doesn't see the fighter in me I will not back down because of a denial! I made appointments to attend seminars at other schools this week and I still plan on submitting a reconsideration letter because I want to prove I am worthy and they will not be disappointed if they let me in. Any more suggestions what I should do? So far I emailed the dean asking for an appointment so she can tell me in person what I need to do for reconsideration. I'm willing to fight! I want to be a nurse and nothing else and a denial will not stop me from dreaming big!

    Noticed that it has been a while since I posted on this thread, and I truly thank each and every one of you for your heartfelt posts. It gives me great pleasure to know that I have in some small way inspired many of you to follow my example and persevere.

    About a week or so ago, I graduated from my accelerated BSN program with honors and was offered a new graduate nurse position at the university hospital to start in about a month. In the meantime, I am also in the process of preparing for NCLEX later this summer. I am extremely excited and grateful to God for allowing me to come this far.

    I sincerely hope that those of you still waiting to start your careers realize your dreams as I am. Don't let one rejection or waitlist make you give up on everything. If there is a place in nursing for you, keep looking for it and you will find it!

    I legitimately found this story yesterday. Today, I got a call from my first choice accelerated bsn program informing me that I had been taken off the waitlist - I've finally been accepted! Thanks for the encouragement...even if it didn't need to take me very far

    Nicely written! I had applied to two schools nursing programs. When I heard back from the first school they said I didn't scored high enough on the math section of the TEAS exam and that I had to re-take it. I was pretty discouraged but started studying to retake it. I started feeling really discouraged though, so I never went to re-take the TEAS. When I called the second school to check the status of my application, I was told the nursing program was full and that I could move my application to the next academic year if I wanted to, so I did. Six months later I got my acceptance letter in the mail and it was the happiest time! If there was one thing I could change it would have been to stop feeling so discouraged just because I didn't get in immediately. I should have also re-taken the TEAS exam for the first school but I kept telling myself I wouldn't be able to pass. My problem was feeling like I couldn't do something before I even attempted to do it. I am thankful I got into a nursing program. I start classes tomorrow!
