cause getting into the nursing program here is absolute hell. i’ve had so much pressure on me from the second i got here last fall. im competing against hundreds or pre-nursing students who are also fighting to get a spot in the nursing program. if i keep waiting im going to end up having to go an extra year, so why waste money on bullshit classes that i don’t need?? trust me, if i could get into the program i wouldn’t change it but it will be a huge weight lifted off of my shoulders knowing that i do not have to fight so hard anymore. so since there are so many second degree programs out there, im going to go that route.
BUT i will never give up on my goal of being a nurse anesthetist. it is a really long road, but i know that someday i’ll get there.
the fact that i have to change my major really upsets me, but i know that in the long run this is the smarter way to go. i’ll have my bachelor degree in psych after four years and then my BSN after 18 months. two degrees in 5 and a half years - not bad i guess.
