I have decided to pursue my BSN starting next fall. I have applied to numerous colleges and have been turned down by a few. I am afraid I won't get into a local program. I do not want to waste my time in an ADN program when it will take me just as long to get my BSN (as I already have the pre-reqs). My GPA is about 2.9, but I believe the reason I have been turned away is because I withdrew from a developmental Psych class twice (I am re-taking it this spring semester). I am in no way a bad student, and all of you who have taken this class know it is nothing compared to A and P or Chem, I was just struggling financially at the time and had to withdraw because I could not afford the tuition. I feel my GPA is low because I have been working 40 hrs a week since starting school.
Overall, my question is this... does anyone know what nursing programs (BSN) in the Chicago Area are easy to get into? I do not want to get stuck without somewhere to go next fall.
