This message is for anyone who is discouraged or thinking about giving up. I have been applying to nursing schools for a total of 5 years. I have a previous degree and an impecable GPA as well as great HESI scores. I was denied to BSN schools 5 times before I decided to "go for the underdogs" as one of my professors put it. (I do not believe Lonestar falls into this category I just want to clarify that ADN was just something I hadn't considered).
Long story short I was denied into another ADN program last semester before I FINALLY got into CyFair!
My score is 7.71. HESI overall (I believe) was 96.
I truly belive GOD had a plan for me, and getting into all those other programs was just not His plan. I am meant to be a part of this cohort and I am so happy I didn't give up! If you've read this far, I just want you to know that God's timing is the BEST timing, even if YOU have other plans. DO NOT GIVE UP!! Keep trying, re-take classes if you need to, re-take the HESI (whatever it takes) just DON"T give up, don't feel discouraged! Your time will come!
