I'm hoping some of you fellow nurses and nursing students can give me some help.
I am feeling overwhelmed right now with the thought of not getting into CU or Regis. I really want to go the route of BSN and don't want to go to DSON if I can avoid it. Nothing against DSON, I just have heard stories about professors and I'm a single mom, so the idea of getting a private loan for that much is horrifying. ;-)
I am a member of my community college's honor society so I have a pretty high GPA overall, however my science GPA is not so good. Does anyone know if the schools take into account BIO 111 (pre-req for A&P) or just the pre-req science courses? Depending on if they do, I could have anywhere from a 2.5 to a 3.0 in my science GPA, which obviously the former wouldn't be good at all. Basically I got a C in both AP1 & AP2...horrible professor, just terrible!!! I'm still mad about it, can you tell? ;-) So basically, I'm thinking maybe I need to retake one or both of those classes, but I just don't know if I have the time. I work full-time and take 3-4 classes per semester, so it's difficult. But I still have managed to get almost all A's in the rest of my classes, just a couple of B's.
Basically I'm wondering if the fact that I'm on the honor society, will have excellent recommendations, consider myself a pretty darn good writer, work for a very well respected science oriented organization, volunteer and have overcome adversity (teen mom) will give me an edge and help offset my poor grades in A&P. Does anyone have any thoughts? I'd REALLY love some help!
Thanks so much!!!
