I didn't realize that I wanted to be a nurse until after I graduated, so After finished my BS in Davis, i went to sac city college to take 3 prerequisites and then I went to a one yet accelerated BSN program. I've been a nurse for 6 years. Best long winded career decision I've ever made!
- 0Mar 15, '13 by orchids1129Thank you so much for the helpful tips everyone! Do you think Nursing programs look at if you failed a class or not? I think I am getting a C in Stats, and I was wondering, should I just fail and take it again, or just get the C? Do nursing schools average the 2 grades, or do they look at the highest one? Thanks so mcuh!

Some schools will average the 2 grades, some schools will look at the most recent grade you have from the course (if you've re-taken it).
UC Davis won't let you re-take a class that you've received a passing grade in. Since it's finals week, see if you can ace the final and get a B in the class or something. Take this with a grain of salt and see what you think is best. My friend intentionally failed a course and she re-took it later on and got a better grade in the course.
