That means I've got less than a fifty percent chance of getting in...I gave up my home and most of my personal belongings, and have been sleeping on a twin bed in dad's living room for the past month to save money for school, not to mention going through a pretty strained personal relationship with dad over the past month for a slim chance to attend this school...
things seem pretty bleak now, and my head is spinning trying to come up with a plan "B" for me and the girls in case I don't get in..
I don't know why I can't seem to catch a break, for once I'd like to be one of those people for whom thinks just seem to fall into place nicely without a disaster of some sorts....

I reckon you have some advantages over others, so don't give up. As Fuzzy said, you have life experience, among other things. Some of those applicants will drop out even before the interview stage as they change their plans, and I would imagine you are a strong candidate. Hang on in there, and don't thinkt he worst!

I had my interview last thursday, stressful day as I had to evacuate the night before because of a wildfire. I gathered the girls up and we spent the night in a rather shitty hotel room, but we were all safe. All the applicants showed up, the school managed to squeeze me in for an interview that day, they "hooked" me up, so I got a little bit more time for my interview than most applicants got. I tried to sell myself the best I could, and felt pretty good about it...I figure, I did the best I could, even if I don't get in..I tried my best..
The official letters of acceptance/denial come out next week, but I'm gonna call on Friday, and see...I'm making plans to go apartment shopping two weeks from now if I don't get in...
kind of hard place right now, I gave up everything for this opportunity, and yet I may be starting over from scratch yet again...
so we will see in a week, it can't come soon enough...

Way to go Ang!!1 I am so happy for you! I believe in you.

No way do I believe that it was seat of the pants, sweetie, you are GOOD that is why they chose you! I struggle too with the feeling of being some kind of impostor, but the fact is I am good at my job, even though I find it almost impossible to believe, and I think you are the same.
Take the time to give yourself kudos here. You got to this point through your own achievements, and pause and allow yourself to feel proud, because we are all proud of you!
love Jillie xxxx

Jillie, yeah I'm trying not to fall into that trap with the grades. For me thinking that way creates so much more stress and anxiety....but....the perfectionist in me won't let me settle for anything less than straigh A's, lol....so far I've got 3 A's and a B average in microbiology (and I'm only one point away from and A)....
Just got home from clinicals tonight....I actually opened up to one of my fellow students tonight, and was telling her about my patient who wasnt doing so well...I was scared...and I told her I don't do so well with my anxiety with patients that are so close to dying, and she was like "so why did you even become a nurse then?" I put her in her place really quick, so many types of nurses, and so many areas to specialize in, some of us have to take care of the more minor cases to cope, but its still a nurse just the same...

I think you're perfectionist attitude will greatly translate into a successful RN career and give you the confidence to deal with the day to day struggles of the profession!

Gurl,. I am so proud of you getting those A grades You will make wonderful RN when you get some experience.
