    Got accepted into nursing school.

    Hey guys,

    I sold my 1/2 of a business I co-owned in '07 to pursue an old dream of becoming a nurse. At 31 years old, I entered into college again having been away from "higher learning" for years. Before me laid a daunting task of completing a long list of prerequisites to even be considered for the nursing program.

    Entrance into the program is difficult. There are 30 slots open with 200 applicants. Your grades have to be top-notch or there is no chance. So, I applied with a 3.8 GPA, and a score of 41 out of 48 possible points on the weighted criteria list. It's a very high score so I felt confident, but the worry and stress still weighed upon me as I waited for the past 2 months to find out whether or not I got in.

    On Monday, I received my acceptance letter into the program! I am really excited and nervous about what lays ahead starting in August. I have a 5 semester course to go through, but with the support of God, my wife, family and friends I shall prevail!

    Congrats! You've got some hard work ahead of you, but it should be easy to find a job once you're finished.

    Congrats! My son is a nurse and it took him 6 yrs. He can get a good paying job almost anywhere.
    There will be times when you will think the world is on your shoulders. When that happens it will feel like you are in the "tunnel" during the escape in the movie Shawshank Redemption.
    Just remember how things turned out. It will happen to you.
    Stay the course. You are still young and decisions you make now will affect which path you go down.
    Good luck and work hard!!!

    That is wonderful news. I will pray that you'll fly right through it.

    Both my mother (Practitioner) and my sister (Medial Billing) are in the field. They always have a job. In fact my Mom just works part time and donates the rest of her time at church where she has an office and see's elderly patients as a ministry.

    Good for you!

    Congratulations. I didn't go back to school until I was 32.
    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience.
