Honestly, apply to the private schools
. dominican u. west coast university, etc.
you can get in. my grades weren't so great. and i got into dominican. wait listed. but thankfully i started the program the second semester i was attending DU because there were openings. you never know. you just have to try. YOU WILL GET THROUGH THIS! IF nursing is REALLY WHAT YOU WANT. YOU WILL GET THROUGH THIS.
if you have the passion to be a nurse. and you perservere i'd rather have you as my nurse than a robot with good grades. it don't matter your grades, those can be fixed, but passion and personality is a little difficult to "fix"
just hang in there. if you can, be willing to re locate. it's a lot of work applying to nursing school
programs, but just don't give up.
my microbio teacher told me that "the amazing thing about nursing is that there is no one straight path to it, there are so many ways you can get to your goal." Through all those years of nursing, and now looking for a new grad job, that quote has kept me going, because it is soo true.
okay off my soapbox. best of luck to you folks! you can do this =)
