Still waiting...

Soo, nothing from graduate school. I applied to the online RODP program on August 5th & have heard nothing. I have a friend that said that one of the girls she works with heard immediately after she applied, so I'm thinking that my answer is no.  The thing is that if it's no then I'll get over it, but I'd really like to know either way. I've called twice & have been told that my application is with the "review board" but dang, it's been over 60 days how long does the review board take?  I've kind of given up, but even so I'd like to hear.
Anyhoo, yesterday I met up with two of my nursing school friends & it was great to catch up and talk about our new jobs.  I have to say I miss my nursing school peeps!!  Well, the majority of them anyway ;) Also, I feel so stagnant. Even though I finally have what I've been working so hard for, I still feel like I'm spinning my wheels. Is that bad? Does that mean I don't appreciate what I've got? I definitely appreciate my job, and actually I'm just starting to, dare I say, like Med/Surg?  Although we've had REALLY low census & I've been put on call quite a bit, I'm not complaining. I actually don't mind being put on call. But still, my end goal has always been Nurse Practitioner & honestly I never for a minute thought I wouldn't get in....Although, like with nursing school, maybe this just isn't my time.  Whatever the situation, I've decided that next time I'm going to apply to more than one school & not put all of my eggs in one basket.
Oh & lastly, today I applied for a L & D position & also a Nursery/NICU position.  I am excited, but doubtful that I'll get a call seeing as I'm a new nurse. Of course, you never know.  I know one of the nurses in the department & I told her I applied & she said she would tell her boss about me, so we'll see!  I think L & D would be so exciting & I'm hopeful that I'll at least get a call & an interview.
I'll keep you updated on that :D
