How are you? I'm a long time lurker here but I think doing so has created some angst and anxiety for me about my future lol.
I am a UF grad in a useless degree. After attending UF I worked for a few years as a teacher and then decided I no longer wanted to do that. I decided I would become a nurse.
Here's the kicker , my overall GPA when graduating was a 2.7. I was very depressed and anxious during my time at UF and never really got any help for it until after graduating
. I went from 5.0 HS GPA, full IB diploma, and national merit recognition to being a "C's get degrees" bum.
Here are my questions for you guys:
1) If I ace my pre-reqs at HCC will I have a chance of getting into their nursing program? I do not doubt that I will get A's in my prereqs short of me getting seriously ill or injured.
2) I have previous credits from UF/HS in some of my prereqs that aren't A's. My math and english courses were fulfilled by AP/IB examinations. However, I did take quite a few higher level math courses when I went to UF. I got C's/B's in those courses. When applying for HCC will they use my Calc II/III grades from UF to calculate my pre-req GPA or will they just use the S from my HS credits?
3) If they are using my Calc scores is it possible for me to just retake their college algebra to replace my calc scores in their prereq gpa calculator?
4) If I do, by some miracle, get into HCC's rn programs what are my chances beyond that for finishing my BSN at UF or USF? What are my other options outside of those 2 schools?
Thanks for your help!
