Hi! I'm currently a student at ASU, taking pre-reqs to get into the nursing program. I just read your post about your GPA and NET scores. I havn't taken the NET yet but my GPA is only a 3.3. From what you said it looks like I have no chance in hell of getting in? Thanks for any info you might have!!
P.S. I think you started this Aug? How is Nursing school so far??Is it as hard as everyone says it is?
RE: your GPA, I would recommend going to see the advisors in the School of Nursing. (Talk to Cecila)
They opened up more seats on both the main campus and ASU West, which is where I went. More seats makes it a little easier to get in, I believe.
I am now in the accelerated program at ASU West.
It is... very time consuming.
The biggest job that I've had is simply one of organization.
It helps to remember A & P and Pathophysiology. Chemistry comes back to haunt you in Pharmacology.
And really pay attention to APA format, because almost all your papers will have to be in APA format.
I'm really not sure how the ASU program compares to others. I didn't take the time to look into the other programs in town. I am determined to get my BSN as well as my RN, so I'll keep plodding along.
Best of luck to you. Just keep your eyes on your goal and don't let anything get in your way.
