    based on your post it sounds as if you need to re-evaluate yourself and your job functions. you have a job to do, so do it. if a cna is a "bully" it's not your job to "stand-up" to her, it's the job of your supervisor. and getting into a screaming match with a co-worker is unacceptable. as long as the cna is not jeopardizing the health or safety of a patient, you should not intercede. as far as the cna gossiping behind your back with your "ex", my mom has this saying "you should never eat in the bathroom" (that's putting it nicely). i heard stories some great stories about workplace romance but about 95% of the time you are setting yourself up for disaster, as i'm sure you now know. grow-up and use this suspension as a learning experience. take this lesson with you when you find a new job because i'm positive you will not be at your current place of employment much longer.

    ok. i was provisionally accepted, now what? i feel terrible because i do not think that i am as excited as i should be. i received the letter on yesterday, i immediately knew what it was, and it took about 15 minutes before i even read it. as i read the letter there was i smile on my face but shortly afterwards i put it on my dresser and did not look at it again for about 6 hours. i did not call anyone telling them that i was accepted. i told my mom late in the evening and that was it. i did not text or email anyone either. i did however comment on my post (1) and that was it. i commented on another post this evening. should i be more excited? i have worked hard but...someone said that the realization has not "hit me" yet. i think contrarily. i think reality has set in and now i am thinking about the financial implications. although i have been saving in anticipation of this very moment, is it going to be enough? what if i have to scale down my work hours? what about my mortgage? will my supervisor accept? will i be dedicated to studying long and hard? am i going to make it through the program? i have heard stories about classes starting with 50 people and ending with 5. what if i am one of the 45 who cannot cut it? what about my children? when i told my son that i was going back to school he said "oh no, you're going to be studying all the time!" i explained this move is so that we can have a brighter future and that it is better now than later. i think he understood. what about the younger ones? they will almost never have quality time with me. i promised my daughter that after i finished we would go on a 7-day vacation to wherever she wanted. she looks up to me so much and do not want to let her down. i think that i am just nervous. i will do well. i will succeed. failure is not an option. i will make it!

    MDC Transitional Fall 2010

    I chose online because I need to work. My supervisor did the generic online at BC and she said that it was doable. Just dont focus on making A's. She says that in nursing school C=RN

    MDC Transitional Fall 2010

    I have read posts about people getting into accelerated only. Nothing about generic or bridge. I wish they would hurry up. It almost July. Are you going for On-line or Traditional Classroom?

    Why cant people be happy for you!

    Congratulations. Wishing you the best of luck in your endeavors. As for family and friends not being happy for you, I would say that maybe they are somewhat envious of you. Maybe they see in you something that they dont see in themselves. And thats not necessarily a bad thing. Continue and be the best student that you can be. Pass your boards and then be the best nurse that you can be. Its quite possible that their envy could one day turn into admiration and possibly motivation for them to pursue their dreams. Always exude an attitude of "If I can do it, anyone can." Not one of "Look at me and look at you." Be humble. As for family, we cant choose them so we tolerate them as much as possible. But we do choose our friends and I would never want to be friends with someone who could not be happy for me.

    No Kamakazi Missions yet. I was invited to the scholarship session. Also in May I received an email from RP and SR asking me "If accepted into the LPN-RN Bridge, which option would you choose? Traditional Classroom Setting or On-Line." I know I was accepted to something. Just not Part-Time Generic?

    Yesterday I rushed home from work and found a letter from MDC stating that I did not get into the Part-Time Generic Option. Funny thing is, I did not apply for the part-time generic. I applied for full-time transitional. Hmmm. Whats really going on over there? When will I get the decision for the option that I chose?
  15. Dont give up. Go there every day if you can. Email everyone. And leave messages as well. Have you tried contacting the new Dean of Nursing?
