    WA RN hopeful with a DUI: Keep going or give up?

    My state doesn’t do expungement. So even if I do deferred prosecution, it’s still going to show up.

    WA RN hopeful with a DUI: Keep going or give up?

    Not yet. Pre-requisites expired right at 5 years, so I have to start over
  3. WA resident. Got charged w/DUI on 7/27/19. Graduated From a inpatient program, continued with Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient, and currently Outpatient treatment (set to graduate April). I find out my conviction sometime in March. I am a CNA, as soon as I know what happens, I will self report and get onto the state monitoring program. I have completed the victims panel too. MIND YOU: ALL of these activities I have completed were VOLUNTARY. Nothing has been court mandated. I have a lawyer of course I am a hopeful RN. I talked to one of the monitoring board managers (part of WAbon) and they said I should be fine from schooling all the way to licensing Given all the work I’ve done. im not doing deferred prosecution because I was told to “save it” if it happens again (GOD FORBID because this has been a nightmare, NEVER EVER AGAIN). every once in a while I get the panic attacks thinking my career is over. But I know I’m not the only person in the healthcare field that’s struggling with something like this. Please don’t shame me for the DUI. That is not the point. What’s done is done, and I’ll be wearing that scarlet letter for the rest of my career. Please don’t remind me of such. Any advice/encouraging words/experiences/the like would be much appreciated. thank you.

    First DUI. No hope. Help.

    I live in Washington state. Had several drinks. I rear ended somebody. Nobody was injured or killed. This is my first accident ever. Blew .254. Not looking good on my part. Seeing lawyer today, court tomorrow. I feel like my life is over. My chances of nursing school are ruined. My parents suggest me moving back home (CA) so the legal costs won’t be unbearable with other costs, but I feel like I won’t be able to work as a CNA again. My CA CNA license is still active though. But when I renew in a few years, I’m basically screwed. Please give me hope. I know people make mistakes. I’ve made a bad one. Any advice, encouragement would help. If if I stay in WA I know I’m screwed when I have to renew my license next year.

    Seattle University Transfer 2019

    I did take Intermediate Algebra in 2014. I am going to register for Stats next week and plan to take it during this summer quarter. The way that the website words the Stats requirement is funny. But I am relieved to know that my Algebra is good for another 6 more years. For UW, I can only do the ABSN as I have a Bachelor's. It is a very rigourous program (as we all know). I have to work....I would be homeless if I didn't work during programs Plus they want OChem and I really want to apply/get in as fast as I can without having to take a bunch of classes...lol... I appreciate your responses to me!!

    Seattle University Transfer 2019

    Ahh thank you so much for responding! I really appreciate it. I feel a lot better about the application process. I am going to put my head in the game and really focus on getting in. I want to have as much drive as possible so I can finally accomplish my goal of becoming an RN! I also wanted to ask, I've been reading the prereq list over and over just to make sure I'm ok. All we need is college/intermediate algebra & statisitics, right? It's saying that the math prereq cannot be satified with statistics, but I thought that's all the math you needed....does that mean I need pre-calc or something like that?!

    Seattle University Transfer 2019

    Hello everyone! I am having a lot of anxiety about the admission process. Previously have a BA in Communications, GPA 3.2. Still need Stats/Chem/Micro. I would say my prereq GPA is a 3.5. I work at Harborview as a CNA, and have been at several facilties in the area. As well as 2 hospitals in Southern CA & a CA hospice facility. Long story short, I want to be an RN because I have an autoimmune disease. I had an awesome care team that got me back on the path to remission. It took a few years of soul searching to figure out that I am called to be a nurse. Now that I am stronger again physically, I want to be able to give back to patients. If I get As in Stats/Chem/Micro, do you think I have a chance of getting in? Plan on applying at the end of this year, with courses still in progress. Hopefully that won't impact my admission decision either. Congrats to all, reading these posts really push me to keep going. Hopefully someone can answer my questions out there. Thank you in advanced. Edited just now by purpleapple428

    My Quest for Soul Searching....

    Hi all....having a bit of trouble here. Hopefully some of you guys can clear things up for me. So, the low down: Graduated with B.A in Communications. GPA: 3.15 Decided halfway through my degree I wanted to become a nurse. Took Anatomy & Physio. B's in both. Chemistry: B Micro: took at another community college because I overloaded my final years in undergrad. Had to withdraw because the professor verbally abused me....my mental health was at risk. W (from Micro) was on my transcript. Nursing school I was thinking about applying to (in Southern California) changed their admission policy. W's were considered as a "fail". Admission counselor told me that my 3 English classes would count as "fails" as well because I took one subject 3 times (my degree was liberal arts heavy). So, I was told I would never be able to get into the program I was looking at. I decided to pack my bags and move to Seattle. I currently provide administrative operational support in a mental health clinic. I still go back and forth on trying again. But I have a few concerns: -I'm afraid my transcript/previously "low GPA" will not be good enough for admission to programs -Costs. I have $20k+ in loans from my undergrad. It's going to take me 10+ years to pay it off. I'm not sure if I want to add on $15k+ to my stack -I also have Crohn's Disease....I've done really well with stress management. But sometimes if I don't manage my stress well, my flare ups can put me out of commission for a while. -Not being able to work during school. Def depends on the program, but I feel like I need to work part time, but I'm afraid I would not be able to keep up. I also worked as a CNA in CA, I'm almost cleared to CNA up here in Washington. So Im stuck and need advice/kick in the pants. Do you think I could get back on and try again? I understand that nursing school is very demanding, but worth it in the end....considering doing ADN then bridging....but the costs... HELP please!!
