Nursing Program

Last week I turned in my nursing application for nursing school. I'm glad I turned it in a little bit early because this last week has been crazy! (I will post about that later) Anyway, I had to turn in some other papers besides just the nursing application that I didn't know about so I had to keep going back to the nursing office at EA and talk to the secretary there. Anyway, this past week Chris's grandfather passed away (which is why my week has been so crazy with the funeral and viewings and everything) and one of Chris's relatives is an instuctor for the nursing program at EA. I'm good friends with her and when I went to go and see the school councelor about all the paperwork for applying, she added up my "points" (which is the letter grades for all my classes I have taken) and I have a point score of 23 points. The school councelor told me that they have accepted students with point scores as low as 14. The councelor also told me she would be way surprised if I did not get accepted in the program. So I left feeling pretty confident, then when I turned in my application, I realized how many people were applying and then I started feeling pretty nervous about it. At the luncheon after the funeral, I was talking to Chris's relative and I asked her about my point score, and when she heard what it was she said, "Just go and buy your books. I'll be your teacher next semester." And I said, "Really?" And she said, "I have no doubt that you will be accepted in. If you aren't I will be super surprised." So that made me feel a ton better about applying. So now is just for the time of sitting and waiting for a month and a half before I can hear if I am accepted into the program. I'm excited though because if I get in here at this program, then I won't have to leave Chris! These are some pictures that we took after the viewing on Sunday. He wanted to get a picture of us all dressed up. (And no, Kim/Collette, they are not engagement pictures yet) ;)
