    Thanks future RN Jess. I have been checking around it appears it is supply and demand right now. Do you really need to have a 3.5 to 4.0 to be a good nurse? I think they have raised the bar. Anyway, I am finished with all the pre req's and will keep trying. What is your opinion on supplementing education with the NCLEX-RN Review for success on the State Boards?

    I loved all the pre req's and found it very interesting and challenging. I don't think another profession would challenge me and therefore I would be bored with anything else. Just praying that my 3.0 will get me in somewhere.

    I don't think a good or even bad nurse can be measure solely on academic achievement. Some people are better at hands-on than others. I think your 3.0 is great. Make sure you have excellent letters of recommendation (non-family members), personal essay, possibly some volunteer work, etc.

    Best wishes to you!

    Hi debszter!

    You would have to check what are the admission criteria for the particular school you want to attend. My school is a community college and their criteria was A LOT more difficult than the university I applied to. You would have to check. But, good luck!!!

    Thanks Mave. I applied at my local Junior College. We had 175 applicants and 50 slots. They went strictly on GPA. I just missed it. I am going to apply for next semester along with other places. I just pray I am able to retain the information I studied!
