Yes you can get in to nursing school with C's but it doesnt do any good for your GPA. Most school's are competitive so it's good to do your best.
Well, I got a C in A&P...twice. I fear I have done myself in. Anyone else get a C in A&P and still get into nursing school?
My husband I are hoping to get stationed in Virginia. Just in case I don't get into a BSN or ADN program does anyone know anything about the practical nursing programs that are sponsored (hope that's the right term) high schools?
I'm looking at the list of practical nursing programs approved by the Virginia board of Nursing. They go through the high schools but you can be an "adult" and still apply. Anyone know any about these programs? Does anyone know if these programs can be used to do a LPN to RN bridge program? I'm really trying to get a grasp on my options so I can apply for programs as soon as we know we're going to VA. Any opinions you have on these programs would be great.
I did so well on my A&P Lab final that I went form a C to a B for my final grade. I did so bad on the lecture part of A&P that I went from a B to a C (two different classes) for my final grade. You want to know what the funny thing is? I have a bachelors degree in Business. In my major I had a 3.96. I guess science is not my strong point.
How many schools will you have gone to when BEFORE you even get into Nursing school? As a military wife I've had to go to 5 schools to get my undergrad in Business Administration. Since I've started my pre-reqs, you can add one more school to the list. Since the school I'm going to now has no concept that not everyone can go to school during the day, I might get up to a total of seven schools. But only two to do my pre-reqs.
Ordering transcripts is going to be expensive.
My A&P I class doesn't combine the lab. The lab is a different class. I'm taking A&P I on-line over 6 weeks (I take the lab in the classroom). My first test was last week. It covered 4 chapters. There were only 18 questions on the test! I missed 4 questions! That's a 79%. The rest of my tests will cover 4 chapters each and will only be 18 questions too!
Does anyone else have a class like this where the tests are extreamly short? I hope I'm not setting myself up to fail. It's not that the material is hard, it's just that there's so much to learn to only be given 18 questions!
I really don't want a B. I want an A. I don't mind taking the class over again in order to get an A. I don't have a specific program I want to try to get into. Right now I'm trying to narrow it down.
For the progams you want to get into or have applied to, how do they view classes that you've retaken? In my case, if I get a B then retake the class and get an A, how would your program see this in their decision making process?
I'm taking A&P right now during the summer. My instructor says that his students get better grades during the summer sessions. He also said he can't figure out why that is.
We could but we'd only get 75% of our money back for the cruise and would have to pay insane fees to the airline to rebook with them. The cost to rebook isn't worth it. Oh well! It'll be a nice break before I dive back into school again.
My husband and I have been wanting to go on a vacation. We found a cruise that was perfect. I called and booked the cruise and the air plane tickets to get there.
Yeah, the cruise is in the middle of September. I didn't even THINK about school. The class I want is on Tue/Thursday. I'd have to miss three classes and a two labs for Chem. I guess I'm not taking any classes this term. Seems like it would be alot of work to make up and chem is NOT my strong point. Oh, well. I thought about it and I'd rather take the vacation than have to take the financial hit of canceling the cruise just to take one class.
There's another school I can go to that has 10 week terms and their classes start in October. Lets hope I can get into their chem class.
Which part of VA are you thinking of moving to?
My husband is in the Navy and we're thinking about going to Virginia for our next duty station. Right now we're in Hawaii which has no LPN programs, 1 ADN program and 2 BSN programs. You can only imagine how excited I am to know that VA has so many more nursing programs!
My question is, what are the wait lists like? Will it be years before I get into a program? Are their schools that don't have wait lists? My husband is willing to go anywhere I can get into nursing school. I already have my bachelors in Business Admin, but I'm more than willing to go to any good school that will let me in. I should have all my pre-reqs done in March 09.
Can anyone give me some ideas about wait times? Thanks!
How many nursing schools did you apply to? Would you be willing to move if you could get into the right nursing school?
Medical terminologly and Microbio. My school was only offering the Microbio class and not the lab so I hope I can take the lab later.
I don't know...if your parents say get a job or take classes, I'd be taking classes. Do you have a community college in your area? Do you know if they'll let high school students take college classes? You seem like you've got it all planned out. At your age, I wish I would have gotten an early start on college. If you're good at math, get your math requirements out of the way. Good at English? Get those requirements out of the way. You MIGHT get ahead if you do the CNA class. You'll really be ahead if you get into the academic requirements while you're still in high school...that is, if you can.
I had to drop my Spring A&P class because I needed surgery. I can get into an A&P class for the summer, but the lab sections are all full. All the microbiology classes for the summer don't have labs. All the chem classes are full. I really don't need medical terminologly but I'd rather do something than nothing. Does anyone think taking medical terminolgly will help with A&P?
