Congratulations! It's not an easy feat to get in. I've been working on prereqs for 4 years. I decided to go into nursing because of my family, and I want the best for me, my husband and our children. I got accepted on my second try. I choose the ADN program over the BSN because it has a built-in bridge to BSN after graduation, it costs less, and the schedule works better for me.
I'm excited and nervous but am trying to contain myself until the orientation in June. To prepare, I am taking pharmacology this summer so I don't have to take it with my nursing courses. I've already got the textbook for that, and am reading ahead. I've been online a lot, ” window shopping” for supplies, scrubs, texts, laptops, and stalking these boards. I've been dreaming big, reading a guide to nursing school, and also looked up my 1st semester profs on ratemyprofessor.com.
2-3 years will fly by, I know, although it will seem to crawl through the rough spots. I give thanks for all the support from family and friends, and from all of you here who are discussing, confirming, refuting and advising on all the ins and outs of becoming an RN. It's gonna be a great adventure!
