    Hi everyone!!!
    I have always dreamed of being a nurse (literally since I was 5), and since high school have wanted to do this internship. I have great experience, I have been a CNA in LTC from ages 16-19, and then moved onto a PCT position at a hospital. I have studied abroad and am now conversational in another language, been a mentor for younger nursing students, am involved in leadership and volunteering, and have received employee of the month at my on campus job and received an award for quality care at the hospital. That all being said, my GPA isn't that great. I'm at a relatively competitive nursing program, and it is well respected in the area.
    Does the externship look at the wide spectrum stuff, much like universities do, or is academics more important than anything else? I just want to know if it's even worth applying to because of my GPA.
