  1. Hello! So I am just about to graduate with my BSN degree. I am currently completing the last few assignments, finishing up senior practicum, and waiting for my authorization to test. I hope to take my exam before August. I however, am very conflicted. I was recently offered a part time weekend job position to start soon. I think it would be some good money and a distraction for me when I am not studying for NCLEX.. which I plan on doing during the weekdays. But I am not sure if I should commit to a job at the moment. I am young, live with helpful parents, but do like to have my own independence. In addition, I was also invited to a short weekend family vacation the week after I finish school, which I thought would be fun to go to before I dig down into NCLEX preparation. I am not sure about this either. What are your thoughts? How did you prepare for your NCLEX? Did you study 24/7 round the clock, or did you allow yourself time to breathe/work/spend time with loved ones?

    Gap year before nursing school?

    I took all of those courses. I graduated with my Associates degree. And my community college also requires a year of waiting.
  6. For reference, I am 20 years old and live with my parents. So I was accepted into a great BSN program that starts in January. It's a private university which means EXPENSIVE. This was the only nursing school to accept me because the other ones required me to have the pre-reqs (required courses for RN school) done before a certain time, which I did not. So if I wanted to apply for the other and cheaper programs, I would have to take a gap year. (most accept students once a year) I'm not sure how complicated this sounds.. but if there's questions just ask me lol. I also just started a new job as a pre-school tutor. This is a full time position that pays well, builds up my resume, and offers tuition reimbursement as well as a generous monetary award to help with college. I would receive this award ONLY if I work for a full YEAR. If I were to start school in January, I would have to quit this job and lose all the potential benefits. (the program is too rigorous for me to juggle a full time job). In all honestly, I'm pretty tempted to take a year off of school, save money, apply for a variety of cheaper nursing programs that I couldn't this year, and use that award to fund my education! **I forgot to mention that I have 4.0 GPA, lots of experience in the healthcare field, and am pretty smart (academically at least). I know I would be a great asset to any other nursing school I apply in the future. I'm not going to lie though, I really don't like the idea of taking a year off of school. I've been in college since I graduated H.S, and my goal in life is to get a Master's degree in nursing. This field is my PASSION and I don't see myself doing anything else. I want to be a nurse and eventually a nurse practitioner! However, it would be nice to work for a year and save $$$ so that I avoid the burden of student loans (private university = very expensive), save my parents money, get experience, and become more social since I am really shy. However, I'm so scared that the gap year would turn into gap years, and I will never achieve my goal of becoming a nurse practitioner in the future. I don' t know what I should do and need advice.. desperately Gap year? Or do I quit the job before I begin school??? I want to specialize in peds!

    I paid the deposit as well. Did you get the email with a 6 digit PIN and package code for the background check? We're supposed to get that email after we pay the deposit but I haven't gotten it.
