I know it sounds cliche but I really do want to be a nurse. I love hospitals, I love caring for people, bodily functions I can handle, I love trauma, I love everything about nursing. Working long hours with no breaks, being vomited on/peed on doesn't phase me, dealing with doctors and being the one to blame doesn't phase me either. I would be doing what I love to do. My problem is the prereqs. I have a 2.8 right now. It's not great, I know. I'm taking a&p 1, sociology, and comp 2 this semester. I'm striving for straight A's. I have about 5 prereqs left so I know I can still bring it up. My mom went through nursing school with newborn twins and always tells me that if she can do it, I can too. I'm afraid I won't be accepted. I'll be taking CNA courses this summer to gain experience. I volunteer at a hospital also. I know nursing is very demanding but I want nothing more then to become one. Any advice on how not to be discouraged when I haven't applied yet? Does receiving extra help for entrance exams really help? I'm bad at math and was thinking about doing it. Any advice or suggestions is appreciated!!
