sb113, stay positive! you have just as good of a chance as anyone else. my thought is, there will be more people called from that list this time around. i am sure more people than usual will not be accepting their spot because it took so darn long for decisions to come out. also, people who were accepted may not be getting that c that they need to keep their spot. other factors such as no seat fee paid in time or not passing the dosage class could open a spot.
what doesn’t kill you can only make you stronger! i plan on retaking speech this summer to get rid of my only c. even if i do get into the lpn program, i still need good grades for acceptance into the lpn to rn.
again, congrats to everyone who did get accepted! just remember, others have worked very hard and did not make it in. be proud that you were able to make it in such a hard time to do so. j
as for us students that did not make it this time, don’t give up! call gwen jones or gwyn degner and find out what it is you need to do to become more competitive. take the back door if you have too; such as the lpn program at dundalk or any other school. i know people frown upon the lpn program, but this day and age things aren’t as simple as they used to be. 100 applications for lpn to rn sound much better then 500+! yes i hear, “do you really want to work with old people?” well, like i said before i am a very positive person. to those that say that, i say, 90% of the population in hospitals are elderly anyway. and yes, i don’t mind old people, lol! i will take nursing experience anywhere i can get it.
:heartbeat sorry so long! i too needed to vent! :heartbeat
