Hello, I am a pre-nursing student at JJC. I'm planning to apply for the Spring semester and take my TEAS during the fall.
By the end of the semester, I will have all the required courses for the program except BIO 251 and 240.
I'm estimating my GPA for the required courses to be a 3.0 or higher by that time too. I have two C's back in my first year for english101 and psych101 (which I really regret.) taken in a university I attended.
Should I retake those courses before applying to the program? or attempt to apply during spring anyway?
What do you think are my chances of getting in? JJC is my only option right now, because I can't afford to go to university. I also really enjoy the environment and all my teachers.
Please help, I need some advice. I plan to see an adviser soon, but I'd like other opinions to help me weigh out my options. Thank you for reading! I am a really hardworking student despite "the past", and very determined to make it into the program.
