*Standing out*

So I'm getting informed in order to promptly apply to school (BSN) in 2006. I have my nursing websites list and have allnurses and my college website in my favorites etc. etc. I am trying to be prepared financially, mentally (what it might be like). I am looking at the different textbooks I will learn from, I have talked to other nurses etc. etc. I'm trying to cover my bases (if you will) :):)

While looking through bursaries/awards/scholarships info, I have had this feeling that in nursing school to do well you need to somewhat "stand out" among your class. You either need to have an issue you are passionate about...example: patient advocacy, a certain subject you adore, breath, and are willing to describe inside out...etc. etc. For your teachers to notice you and believe your conviction to the nursing pathway you need to be ~special~....not teachers pet, not brown nosing (sorry the expression). So what is THE secret...how do you become that special thing or person that stands out among the rest....someone who seems to have passion, determination, a love for the nursing route and issues. When there are 100 people in your classes...what stand do you take to make an impression???????

People tend to stand out on their own merits. The sayings "just be yourself" or "to thy own self be true" is the best advice I can give you. There are no secrets in life to make oneself stand out. The thing is, you can search high and low for the "secret" to become that special thing or person, its not until you look inside yourself and like what you see, will you discover it. Being confident in oneself is what people notice. Don't look to others for vailidation (like teachers/instructors), look towards your mirror.

Best of luck in nursing school :)
