Should I just give up?

Hi everyone!

So I have my BS in  Bio from CSUEB, graduated in '17. Spent a half of 2018 doing nursing pre-reqs and have not had any luck getting into pre-licensure or adn programs. My family is really getting me thinking maybe I should give up applying and just find a job. I have looked at online adn, hybrid programs and just seem to be going down a rabbit hole.

Dont give up. Just stay focused. Do your research and find the best option for you as far as schools. No need to waste your time and hard earned money.

Have you looked at the point system of the schools you're applying to? Have you also looked at moving to a different city or even southern California where there are quite a few community colleges offering the nursing degree. Also consider at least working as a CNA so that you're working beside nurses and you'll be making money. Also some community colleges will give you points for that. Just whatever you do, don't go to a private institution because the tuition is not usually reasonable.

If you got a BS degree already you should be trying BSN program applications or accelerated BSN programs, not just ADN. When I first applied I actually got denied to ASN programs and actually got into the BSN program which was my top choice anyways...that was like back in 2013. A fully online program with not be an option for you unless you have LPN, or RN already. I suggest going to your closest state University and meet with a Nursing advisor on how you can reach your goals.

Yes you have a BS, you should be applying to a BSN program or an accelerated one at least. CNA is also an option. Many with accept you into the LPN or ADN because you have that CNA and work experience.

Thank you everyone for your help. I have added CPT I and EMT-B to my resume! I have sent out applications and so far I have heard back from one program with an interview. I really am praying and hoping I get in.
