Well, I am sorry if I like totally annoy some people but I plan to go to graduate school and this is NO ONE's problem but my own but my first two years I did not do so well and HAD no business starting school until I was totally healed but I did and now I am trying to make up in my last two years for the past two so I can have some kind of chance of getting in to graduate school. Also if you want to do some kind of internship between your junior year and senior year of nursing school
believe it or not they do ask you for your GPA because they EXPECT a minimum GPA.
Some people naturally/easily can get A's but others have to work their REAR ENDS OFF more than others to get those A's. Now I know if I don't get an A is NOT The end of the world but at this time of my life it matters a whole too me because like I said I want to have a good chance of getting into grad school and before I felt like I minus will give up hope for getting in. Well, once my advisor told me that if I work really hard my last two years and then do good on the grad school test and make remarkable improvement a grad school admissions commitee will truly be wowed by that and will give me some consideration.
Kats, as long as we have faith and try that is what matters most.
JerseyRome, some schools
have waiting lists and other's don't. Since you are still a freshman, you cannot apply for a program and get put on a waiting list. You need to graduate from high school first and then go to college and do the requirements the nursing school wants you to do before you can apply. Many nursing schools will not accept you until you have so many credits done and out of the way. So my best advice to you as a freshman is keep your grades up, take science classes like chemistry and Anatomy and physiology if your school offers it. Also take some algebra classes as well. If you not currently a volunteer. I strongly encourage you to volunteer this summer in a hospital. Also call around your local hospitals and find out if they have a shadow a nurse day for high school students.
