Too Many Science Withdrawals, HELP?

  1. I no longer qualify at my junior college for the Associate RN program because I have more than 1 "W" (Withdrawals) in my sciences.

    I notice that other programs have the same requirement.

    Does anyone have any suggestions/advice on this dilemma?

    Does anyone know of any schools that does not have this "no more than 1 withdrawal / repeat on science courses" requirement?

    Your help will greatly be appreciated!

    Take care,

    Does your state accept Excelsior? They don't care too much about your prior transcripts as long as you eventually show the course as passed. Excelsior is a good plan B for people who live in states that accept their nrsg degree for licensure.

    I live in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas. If I am recalling correctly, there's an RN program at a local community college that allows three total withdrawals in the sciences.

    I've noticed it at one program that I'm applying for. Can you speak to an advisor because if you have a good reason documented such as medical issues etc. perhaps they would waiver that requirement.

    Did you withdrawal and then completed the class successfully? Or did you withdraw more than once and did not retake or successfully complete the class? I don't know much about transcipts, but I would think that as long as you completed the class successfully, that grade should transfer and the withdraw should not be looked at. I think it's the same as if you failed a class and then retook it and successfully passed it, the higher grade would be transferred. At least that's how it is where I am located.

    At the schools here they all do look at how many times you took a class to some extent. Most times they will not count a class that has been re-taken with the same points as a one time class. Seems only fair to me because the re-taking gets a bit excessive, imo.
