Recently I applied for a Bachelor of nursing and was told that because I studied prior to the new educational system in N.Z (which now involves credits), I may have to re-study year 13 subjects to prove that I am up to speed. The annoying thing about this is, I have already passed these subjects at high school but cannot provide proof of my results. The old system's results were wiped because they became irrelevant when the new system came into place QQ. I still went ahead and resumed my application & was surprised to get a phone call from the Uni to ask if they could interview me. The interview went pretty well imo, and I will hear back from them in 2 weeks. If Im not accepted, I will have to spend 3 years getting secondary school education (again) before doing 3 years for the BN, Anyway, I hope my story makes you feel less bad. Im willing to start from scratch if it means I can do something I'd love to do, rather than continuing to work in callcentres for the rest of my life lol. :) Keep your head up! I really hope things improve for ya ;) Just a quick question. Is there a correspondence school that offer the prerequisites you need, rather than having to go through your school?

Because I graduated high school in June 2011, I still have some prerequisites to do before I can apply for the LPN to RN transition program at my school. With the way the classes are offered I will miss the next deadline that only comes once a year. All this comes to the point that I will have to wait an entire year to begin the program, making me an RN in 2014. SO much time wasted because of lack of opportunities where I live for LPN to further their education. Sometimes I get really depressed about it, especially considering what a fast track I was on before but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. :(
