    What did you do before nursing?

    I'm not in nursing school yet. I plan to get my CNA by the end of the year and start prereqs in January. I will pursing my ADN in fall 2016. Oh and right now, I'm a legal secretary and have been since 2000. I am so looking forward to pursing my passion and not looking back on this dead end job. I regret staying in the field this long. There is light at the end of the tunnel for me and I'm happy about that!

    Yogi Mel, I am so sorry to hear that you gave up your spot...I am still searching for loans. I have applied for 5 or 6 and didn't get approved because of my credit and I had a cosigner as well. I am in the process of seeing if I can get another person to cosign the loan. If I don't get the loan by the end of the month, I am going to give up my spot as well...So, you may see me at UNC:)...Good luck to you!

    I am going to try both of those for private loans. Mine was 34,000. So, I will definitely only be applying for that amount. I currently live in MD. Where do you live?

    NMWayah, I am in the same predicament as you ...I have tried a couple loan companies and was denied as well...That's one reason why I haven't did the background check. I am going to wait until September 30 to order it. I hate to ask people to cosign, but it looks like that's what I'm going to have to do...Have you tried SallieMae?

    NMWayah, You may want to contact "M" regarding the $500. I sent mine as soon as I accepted. I received an e-mail from them confirming receipt. Thank you for the heads up as I still have not ordered the background check. I will do so over the weekend.

    Thanks for the encouragement BluDevil! My coworker told me to apply to Duke because her daughter is a RN and she went to Georgetown. She told me that I was going to get into Duke and not to worry about the finances...I understand, I am very impatient as well! Hopefully, we will hear something soon and I will also check into travel nursing. Sounds like you can make a pretty penny doing that! I'm single and do not have any children. So travel nursing should be a piece of cake for me!

    BluDevil, that is true! I want to know because if it's not a good amount, I'm going to have to explore other options .

    i accepted my offer as soon as they sent out admissions decisions. however, i sent an e-mail to financial aid the end of last month and i received the standard yada yada yada that we would have our financial aid packages before the october 1 deadline. also, i think we have to accept the offer by october 1. don't quote me. i still have to order my criminal background check and am waiting on financial aid before i spend anymore money!

    A&P and Micro at the same time?

    I'm taking A&P II and Micro together for the fall semester. I have a friend who is a RN and she told me that I will totally be stressed out from this. The only reason why I'm doing this is because I have to get my pre-reqs done before I can apply to nursing school. I'll let you know whether I have a nervous breakdown or not LOL.
