    Everyone Won't Succeed. And That's Okay!

    agreed. There are too many factors involved to say that someone cannot jump from one social class to another. whether they rise or fall. Growing up, my family has risen, from an apartment to a 5 bedroom home. Father was a police dispatcher and became a PC consultant for many big name attorneys in Houston. He has also befriended many of them through his professionalism. Not everyone is bound for greatness and now everyone is bound for failure. The only time you truly fail is if you do not test your limits

    No Nursing Shortage At The Present Time

    so you are talking about new grads and LPNs? Is it possible that the hospitals want minimal liability for those who are inexperienced in the work field and they want people to pursue a higher level of education? now I am not trying to bash LPN/LVN's I am just assuming this is what the hospitals are after.

    No Nursing Shortage At The Present Time

    My main problem with this forum is the lack of specificity of what type of nurse cannot get a job? Location? CNA/PCA? LVN? ADN-RN BSN-RN? MSN-RN? I am in Texas so I dont see the hardships of getting a job(that everyone is complaining about), but it would be nice to be better informed about the rest of the country?
  4. So... My friend just got accepted into a program. classes just started for her(path and basics) then she is enrolled in the fall.. We go to my gf's birthday where she had one drink. 3 hours later she leaves and goes to her other friends place. she got drunk there apparently, head to my house(kinda my brothers gf) and then she hits someone. Cops stop her and she is charged with a hit and run, and failed the sobriety test. She is in jail right now. I am not completely sure if she is being charged with a DWI but can she still get her license with a DWI on her record? No the person really isnt me because I am posting from a computer and computers are not in jails. Geez... I am stressing out about this cause we are leaving together for nursing school in the fall =/ and her whole future could be jeopardized from this.

    ut houston still doing interviews?

    I applied for spring 2011 and received and interview back in September, but I heard from another appicant that didnt make it that they arent doing interviews anymore. Now I heard from a current student that they saw interviews going on... I am a little confused. I dont know why I wouldnt get an interview now if I received one before. any input from other applicants? thanks

    to be honest. i gave up. i am going to try again though... I used to be afraid of rejection and I would not try at life. To be honest. This is the first year I focused on school because I realized that I need to lock down on everything. I was aiming for the easiest school at the beginning of the year and.... I really surprised myself. I didnt think I would ever make the grades that I did. 3.5 isnt amazing but coming from like a 2.3, it is... Since I feel like I actually realized what I want to do and where I belong... I am going to keep striving for this! they asked us how we deal with disappointment. the only way to properly deal with it is to go straight through it and try again. You always know what the right words to say to someone when they feel down... but people never usually embrace their advice. This is the first time in my life I have embraced it and I will try again until I get in. But I still had 21 hours to complete this semester.. I am actually enrolled in 6 right now. and I have 1 winter mini... which may have affected their decision for me because I still think I had a perfect interview. Going to send in Apps for TWU, UTHSCSA, UTHSC and UTT. and take the TEAS V Good luck with nursing school everyone. Hopefully I will get in next semester! and good luck to those still trying!

    Not trying to shoot you down. But you busted your ass for good grades in the core classes. Don't you think you should try one more time before settling for an adn program? I would have done that at the beginning of this year but I rushed through so many classes and much stress to settle to have adn at the end of my name when it requires the same amount of time in nursing school
