Nothing can be more frustrating for someone juggling work, school and nursing school applications than finding out the date to apply has passed by, or that you missed the deadline to take a required standardized test.

If you do all these things, and believe in yourself, you can do it. Getting into nursing school can be quite competitive, and at times it won’t seem like there’s enough time in the day, but if you put your heart into it and work hard, becoming a nurse is definitely within your grasp.
