Hi I am new to this site. I am currently doing research on second degree accelerated nursing programs in Florida. I am kind of worried and confused on what to do and am looking for some advice from students that have already gotten accepted into an accelerated nursing program in Florida, or actually anyone all advice is welcomed and greatly appreciated! I currently live in Illinois and would like to relocate to Florida but from the research I have done I see that accelerated programs in Florida are extremely competitive. My concern is because to stay the least my first undergraduate degree has been quite a roller coaster. I am finishing up my first degree in pure mathematics. My concrete math courses, calc 1 2 and 3, multivariable calc 1 and 2, etc, I did very well in but my latest abstract math courses I have really struggled in.... I mean REALLY struggled to the point that if I wasn't so close to getting my math degree I would probably just drop my remaining math courses and apply to a traditional nursing program. Right now I am in 4 math courses 2 which I have C/D in, one I have a C in, and one I have an A in. These last few math courses that I have really struggled in have brought my cum GPA to about a 3.0. Buttt thankfully my pre-req courses I have done very well in. Anatomy/phis 1 and 2 with labs A, general Bio with lab A (initially failed it but retook and got an A, as well as a letter of recommendation from that course), physics with lab A, nutrition A, intro psych and developmental psych both A, chem 1 and 2 C
buttt organic chem with lab an A! So as you can see my background is very up in down. My question is does anyone have any advice on what accelerated nursing program would be my best chances. I have also worked all throughout school, so I have a good work history, as well as a lot of volunteer work in and out of health care field, I have been treasure of the math club at my school, student rep for the math department, and held leadership positions in my sorority, also I have not taken the TEAS yet but I am a very very strong test taker. Any advice would be great!! Sorry for the novel of me just talking about myself.
