After being denied semester after semester and being just a number on a waiting list, I received a letter on Friday informing me that I will be starting nursing school this fall (provided that I can pass an admission assessment exam). I am anxious about the test because I have been out of school now for a year and if I don't use it, I tend to lose it. If I pass this test, I will be attending college at Yuba City in Marysville (about 40 minutes from my house). This college was not my first choice but I just want to get into a program so I am excited to start anywhere.
Just getting the letter and knowing that my life as I know it will end in six months has already started to stress me out. I am already having sleepless night wondering how I am going to be able to juggle everything...don't get me wrong, I know that people have it worse than me and I am grateful that I have this opportunity to pursue this goal of mine. Like I mentioned before I am a little rusty when is comes to academics but luckily they added another pre-requisite that I have to take before fall so I will get a "warm-up" class this summer. I am hoping that this will help me get into the swing of things. It is going to be a long two years but I know that becoming an RN will be worth all of the hard work and sacrifice that it will require.
