    I think you nailed it on the head, eastcoastie. I wish the very best to everyone, whereever you wind up pursuing your passion for nursing! I was so grateful/psyched to find out I was accepted as well. @acetate- If your'e worried about a particular course, maybe send a syllabus to the admissions officer? I was concerned about one of my courses (Chem). I was just about to shell out the dough for another, different chem class for the prereq, but I was pleasantly surprised when the admissions officer told me that the one I had would be just fine. Hopefully they're not sticklers, but I'm sure the office could help to clarify!

    @ND_Irish - Thanks so much for coming on here to offer support- much appreciated! I have an endless number of questions for you, but I'll start with this one: I took a tour of the school last year and I vaguely remember some mention of ABSN students becoming certified as CNAs at a certain point in the curriculum- am I recalling that possibility correctly? If so, could you please share a little bit more about that option? Thank you!

    Career Change!

    Hi there. I worked in education before pursuing a career in nursing as well. Have fun with your pre-req class and best of luck investigating/applying to nursing programs!!

    @Morgan- I interviewed via phone a couple of weeks ago, but before I received the invite, I called the admissions office and was told that not receiving an interview did not necessarily mean that your application was no longer in the running. It is possible that they may have just not had any clarifying questions regarding your application! @NursingFanatic- Excellent investigating. I'm counting down the days!! Starting to freak out...

    Have you tried looking on khanacademy.org ?

    Entrance Essay

    I think it would strengthen your essay if you provide concrete examples/anecdotes for the characteristics that you mention. Best of luck.

    School Letters of Recommendation

    I would first speak to the admissions counselor at the school(s) to which you are applying. Different programs and admissions committees look for different characteristics. Some are predominantly concerned with your awareness of/competency in a clinical setting, others more interested in your ability to perform will in the classroom, others in the range of experiences that you will bring to their program. If you know precisely what they are looking for, that will help you pinpoint who you can ask for recs. Good luck!

    Former Teachers turned Nurses?

    Hi there. I am not a mother, but I am in the same boat of switching from a career in education to one in nursing. It is good to hear that you like both equally, but you also stated that you're burnt out with teaching- I can definitely relate. Which do you think will give you the greatest amount of joy, teaching or nursing? In my humble opinion, it's not just the actual hours that you have to put into either, but the quality of life that you have when you're not at work. Do you feel more drained after a 12 hour shift of nursing, or after staying up late grading? Do you feel more energized by a positive encounter with a patient or a success in the classroom. The answer is different from everyone, and only you can answer for yourself. Good luck!!

    In need of advice

    Hey girl, Good for you! I concur- go at the pace that is right for you. Plus, if your job is in the healthcare field, then it will make the material that you're learning all the more relevant. Even if you're not working in healthcare, being debt-free these days is awesome. Best of luck to you!!

    @LREYES2 - I did have my interview. As people have stated before, it was very laid back and informative as well. When is yours? Best of luck!

    Hi there, I did not take Microbiology over the summer, but I did take A&P in a six week summer session. I think that doing any of your lab sciences in a consolidated format is going to be intense, but if it were impossible, the school would likely not offer them. In my experience with A&P, I actually really liked taking the class in the summer because I was always in the zone. Yes, there will be work/family commitments going on, but (hopefully!) it's the only class you're taking, so you can devote all of your study time to that course. It's a full time job, but you can do it! Good luck!
