Truth: you can not get rid of it. Anyone who has gone through the nursing school acceptance process will tell you they were afraid of not getting in.

The best way to use this fear is to prepare yourself as best you can. This means, getting good grades in your prerequisite courses, taking time to write an excellent personal statement, discussing your progress with an adviser. The only way to ensure your acceptance is to not give them a reason not to accept you.

Of course, each school has different requirements. If the school just looks at GPA- have a 4.0 (or as close as possible). If they require volunteer work, volunteer every week. Have experience as a CNA.

Stay positive, work hard and do not give up! Hope this helps.
