I was told it would be very difficult for me to get into a nursing program because I have a GED and not a highschool diploma. I haven't taken my prerequisites yet but I don't wanna bother if I'm not going to get into the nursing program due to me having a GED. Are there any registered nurses here with a GED rather than a High school dipolma? I really don't know what to do... Or if me having a GED really matters. Help?
Whoever told you that does not know what they are talking about. I just got accepted to nursing school and i have my GED. I actually am going to a community college, but i also applied to a BSN program and i found out that they were gong to accept me had i not turned it down, and they knew all about my GED. I used to think because i did not actually graduate from high school and get a high school diploma that i was not good enough for some things(i.e college) but a GED is the EQUIVALENT of a high school diploma, not something second rate.Thats what my college adviser told me when i had some concerns about it. So congrats on getting your GED that is a major accomplishment, you don't know how many people are to afraid to go out and get one, And good luck in pursuing you Nursing career.
