Promise last thread on this.
Hi, so I applied to two community colleges nursing programs
in my area. The way it works is if waitlisted at your "first choice" you are not accepted until they reach your number. For the second choice they have to exhaust their waitlist number then you are could be potentially picked.
I am a bit uncertain if Accelerated is the way to go for me. I tried an accelerated online math class once and was the worse experience ever had. Achieved D's and F's in the entire program.
My options are just apply to Associate program's or Associate & Bachelor program's.
If I apply to both Associate and Bachelor program's have to take various prerequisites for various programs. So have to take Intro to Physics, College Algebra Pre Calc, Chem 1, Chem 2, Inorganic Chem, Lifespan & Development, Stats, and a few other classes. I would be applying to 4 to 5 program's instead of 2.
However, if I stick with the ADN plan I am already done with prerequisites and regular classes for the program. I probably end up taking Lifespan and retake AP2. I would take Math again, but would wait until my application is in for the next class. They take your highest level Math class, which is an A. The Spring would probably take Stats and Spanish next Spring.
So far my grades are:
A - Intermediate Algebra
B - Intro to Chemistry
B- - AP1
C+ - AP2
73 on the TEAS
B - Intro to Psychology
2.91 GPA this GPA doesn't factor in my grade for AP2 and Micro. Micro grade I don't know yet. I am hoping for a B- or higher. If I do receive a B- in Micro I'll land somewhere in a 2.89 to 2.9 overall GPA.
I would also probably take the TEAS again because I did decent on every section outside of Science. My weakest issue was the AP section since I took the TEAS with limited AP knowledge; think just finished AP1 when I took the TEAS.
If I can achieve an A in AP2 think that help my chances of being accepted into the ADN program. Think if I took Chemistry and AP2 together could risk another B- lowering my GPA. Also I feel confident in taking Lifespan can achieve a B+ or higher.
I know a BSN is hot right now. My job is making nurses be registered in a BSN program by 2020. I would probably look into doing an RN to MSN online program if I did do the ADN route.
Appreciate any insight or feedback can give.
