Nursing School

As many of you know, I am going for a career change when I get back to the states.  After talking with a friend of mine several months ago, she told me that she thought I would make a great nurse because I love working with people, I want to help them and in her opinion, she says I’m smart.  😉

Well, after doing much research, I think I’ve decided which college I’d like to attend.  CSU-Pueblo.  The problem right now is that I have about 25 credit hours of prerequisites that I have to take  — and I missed the deadline for admission this coming summer!  ARG!  To top that off, I have to complete 50% of the prerequisites before I can even consider applying to the Nursing School.  This is across the board!  Apparently, there are about 300 students that apply to the program and only about 180 for the 2 programs (accelerated and traditional–I’m going to go down the traditional route) are even accepted!  So, it’s highly competitive!   Okay, I’m can handle it…Seriously, that’s alright!

I’m cool and calm and relaxed and so on…YEAH–NOT!  Okay, so first I have to breathe.  Next, I need to figure out how I can study for Microbiology, A & P and Chemistry BEFORE I go back to school so that I will do well in these classes.  The better I do, the better my chances that I wouldn’t be wait-listed or not accepted at all!  So any suggestions on how to start studying for these classes before I take these classes?  As a student of history, it was just a matter of reading the material and writing some papers.  I guess to me that is easy…chemistry–not so much.

I just need to know how to get started without taking the classes first.  There isn’t time for me to audit a class and then taking it for credit later.  So, I’m going to have to figure it out.  But, seriously, any help would gratefully accepted!!!!

Thanks for reading and have a great day!  🙂

    You don’t know me, and I don’t know you, but I read your blog about going to nursing school. I’m an RN in Kansas, so I speak from experience. Don’t let it get your spirits down, but don’t be surprised if you have to apply 2 or 3 times before you get into the nursing program of your choice.

    Feel free to contact me at the email provided for the comment submission, and I’ll be more than happy to give you whatever guidance I can.
