Class of 2010!

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.

Wow! Congratulations! Sory you have to drive so far, but like you said, it's still exciting that you got into a program. Is Nursing lottery too?

Wow, Congratulations! You are going to make a fantastic nurse! Just think, you will be able to add all the experience you have gained so far as a mother to make for an even better nurse. Such a motivation and inspiration you are girl! Good luck and I know you will do well!

congrats Tiffani!

Yes it is a lottery. I had applied 3 other times and got denied because there were over 500 applicants and only 30 spots. I got in on a waiting list which in my opinion is more fair.

Yay Tiff! You have worked so hard and are going to make the best nurse ever! It may sound overwhelming now, but you will take it one day at a time, after all, look how long time has gone by...you have been alove almost 25 years, married over 5, and have had Carson for almost a year! These 2 years are going to fly by and pretty soon we will be picking out super stylish scrubs for you! I support you 150%, and if you need anything, all you have to do is ask!

That's so cool, I am super jealous, but you totally deserve it and you're going to make an awesome nurse!
And I bet that even though you haven't "used it" a lot lately, you'd be surprised at how well you'll do on that test.

Congrats! I'm so excited for you. I know it's been a long process, and I know you'll do great. If you need help with Carson, I'm there. Besides, Carson seems to like me enough anyway.
