Nursing School Dilemma

Rejection doesn’t hit me hard when I expect it. I’m sure many of you can relate.

March 2013, I applied to Nursing school

Mid May 2013, I was flat out rejected- but I expected it because my TEAS score was below expected average.  I was a little sad, but I got over it rather quickly.

June 6, 2013- and opportunity arose due to my school being elected to implement a special partnership program with the Veterans Administration Health Care System that would allow them to increase enrollment by 20 students in the Traditional Prelicensure BSN program for fall 2013.

I was asked if I wanted to be considered for this opportunity.  Naturally, I said yes and I applied.  However, I did not believe I would get in- I simply applied “just cuz.”

Consequently I was very surprised to read my acceptance letter on July 1.
Yes, I was very very happy- In fact I was so happy that I could not believe it.  I just kept thinking it was too good to be true and I would receive an email saying “Oh sorry, that wasn’t meant for you.” I made my sister read it just to make sure I was not mistaken.  I screamed, I almost cried and I smiled for days.

A previous post spoke about graduation & so I had to apply for readmission.  I completed everything that needed to be done in order to secure a spot for the Nursing program.

Yesterday to my grand surprise I found that my application was processed as Fall 2014, and not 2013.  I called the admissions office and they said that I could only email and wait for a response.

I sent out an email yesterday at 4:30 pm that asked to decline my application for fall 2014 so that I may reapply for fall 2013.   I have waited exactly 12 hours already and I am wearing thin to the core.

Note: (I will be calling them shortly after I finish this post).

The reason I have no patience is because the lady in the phone told me my chances of being “readmitted” would be slim…which is ridiculous since I have been accepted into their nursing program right?! Anyhow,  I freaked out of course almost down to tears.

Now, after 3 movies, I am feeling much better.  I am still a little upset with my mix up but I have decided to not super stress about it because whats going to happen will happen.

If my university ( which I love) refuses to readmit me, yes- I will cry, but like one of my best friends told me…I’m going to be a Nurse one way or another.”

I am mostly angry with myself because I thought this last minute VA thing was sort of like a miracle because I was able to get a spot, and now I possibly ruined this chance by being careless.

Anyhow, I still think I have a shot of getting in…even if the chances of being readmitted this late in the year are slim.

Wish me luck guys =)

This is Why I’m Single

Not too long ago in a land called Las Vegas, I “very Hollywood like” bumped into a guy.

It was very much like that scene that you see in a movie, and you automatically think it never happens in real life.  Well, I am here to tell you that I am a believer because it happened to me- just once- but it happened.

I’ll continue.  So we bumped into each other because I was walking to fast towards an open elevator and I didn’t think there was anyone inside.  I was mistaken- after the bump I mumbled an apology and then just as the doors were about to close, he stepped in and introduced himself and he stopped the elevator doors from closing.

I just gave him a neutral look as usual when any man approaches me and I said “hello, my name is Alexis”.

Now, let me just let you know that my name is not Alexis.  It is just a name I like to use because it is pretty.  I find myself using it whenever I can (mostly when I am alone so no one gives away my real identity…as if it really mattered) and yes it’s a bad habit.

Anyhow, he was a big (Brawny), and he was a beautiful light brown skin color with green eyes.  He also had long curly hair.  To make things short…he was hot.

He asked me where I was from, and I said Florida (which I am not- I guess I am an  un- diagnosed Pathological liar with strangers).  He thought that was cool and that that explained my tan….

While he was talking to me I was thinking of how cute he was and how I wanted to talk to him- Then believe it or not he asked for my number.

I know what you are thinking…but no…

The conversation went something like this

Guy: so may I have your number?

Me: I dont have my cellphone with me…sorry

Guy: So you dont know your number?

Me:…..I really dont….

Then it got a little odd, but I sounded pretty convincing.  He wanted to give me his number- at this point the elevator was making that BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP sound because it was shutting the doors by force, and I realized that I was saved and I left him there.

Right after the doors closed, I hear my internal voice screaming “Noooooooooooooooooo”

I am an optimist at heart (sort of) and I did learn a lesson from this…

Anyhow, I am not looking for any sort of relationship because I will start Nursing school soon, and my social life will be none existent.

Story of my life so far- It’ll change in 2 years =)

Back for a Masters? Nope, just another Bachelors

I got accepted into a Nursing school on July 1, 2013.

Yes, yes I was very excited….and I still am.  I bought my scrubs today- I’m going to look great.  However, I will say- it is going to be Hell-Ah expensive.

Books alone almost 1000 dollars, and that price is for e-books.  I have to go out and find  health insurance, because I have been playing superman for two years and I finally found kryptonite…that analogy did not make sense.

Anyhow,  I have to go get drug tested, which I am oddly excited about doing.

Then, I have to go out and take a loan of out of a bank or somewhere.
Even so I am excited to start Nursing school.  Its going to cost me a pretty penny, but it’ll be worth it….
