Everything All at Once
Isn't that how it goes?
I have a chance at getting into nursing school as early as this summer. My next chance is Spring, (actually January) 2010. Here's what I need to do (instead of Blogging) and I have to get it done by Friday:
Have a GPA of 3.0
Sign up for and hope I get into statistics (pre-reqs are a bitch, aren't they?) and microbiology together next semester
Done: I got into both classes after a couple of phone calls.
Request transcripts from current college and old alma mater: “Ivy League School of the Midwest”
Write essay on 'Why I wanna be nurse” -- surprisingly difficult. Which is why I'm Blogging.
Fill out on-line admissions form.
Send in $50.00.
There is also a chance that my tuition will be paid for me – if a certain company likes me. I'd have to sign a contract to work for them for two years afterwards. No big deal. It's not labor and delivery, but it is in another area that has my interest. I could possibly get a job with them right now as a tech, but that's a lot to think about. I need to see if I get into school first, and whether I start in Summer '09 or Spring '10.
The odds of getting into nursing school are pretty intimidating: 1000 applicants, 240 positions. Better odds than sonography though.
Oh, and the other thing? I apparently said the right words to the right person and now he wants to see a copy of JALL when I get it all done and polished so he can find me an agent. I've heard it before of course...but this guy could actually do it.
Anyway. Wish me luck?
