    This sounds like the community college points because of the hardships section. I had mid-high sixties when applying for fall 2012 ( I don't remember exactly) to city college and grossmont and was rejected. I did my cna june 2012 to increase 5 pts for next time but was accepted to SDSU in july for spring 2013, luckily they have a different point structure.
    I heard that grossmont doesn't look at students who don't make at least 80% on teas..but thats just a rumor.
    My advice is to apply to every school and try to fill in all those extra boxes for more points as you go, like foreign language, because rejection does happen.
    I would also retake the course with a C even though you said you don't want to risk it, it will increase your gpa and that next bracket might be the boost you need.

    I took microbiology, anatomy, physiology, and health 101 all in the same semester, as well as working 10 hrs a week in the biology lab and taking care of my 2 year old all while I was also pregnant! To say the least I was getting my A's by a hair in both micro and phisio. It was tough but also easy because there were many connections in the work that made studying not so compartmentalized. I spent many hours in the anatomy lab on my 'breaks' between classes (30 minutes here, 45 there..etc.) I had no real assignments to do outside of class which was great it was all reading and reviewing. It is possible but it is not a breeze.

    I say go for it. I was pregnant during my last semester of prereqs and baby was born spring break, I got three days off and then back to school. I then took a CNA course in summer which was 4 days a week and made it. Now I am at SDSU and baby is 8 months old, I'm starting my nursing classes in January and couldn't be more excited. The entire experience has definitely been tough, I recall saying I'm tired more than anything in the past 8 months, but I would not change it. I want to have my career and my children ( I also have a 3 year old). My only support has been my husband and daycare since we live so far from family. I have had no personal life between school and children, but that's a sacrifice I was more than willing to make. I also agree with the previous poster that we don't completely stop are own lives but instead we organize them around children to include both the things that are good for ourselves as well as them. What could be better for them than to have than a great role model about going after your dreams and having a career to be proud of.

    Your NWU is long sleeve though yes?
    Nevermind! I re-read to see you are getting scrub tops...I was imagining a transmissions nightmare since they appear to be a little loose.

    I work in my NWUs and khakis on fridays on a medsurg floor. It's not terrible. We are getting NWU scurb tops but still have to wear our boots. Also our LnD has their own scrubs.

    I've been following this thread for awhile now and wanted to say thanks navyman.
    Your last post shocked me a little.
    Working bedside in your uniform!? I thought maybe insignia scrubs or something, but in uniform seems a little uncomfortable,especially your shoes!
    Also your comment about insubordination from superior nurses was a little concerning. If one were to consult the MD would that be insubordination?

    I know at southwestern having your CNA certificate is also required as a pre-req where other schools will give you points for it but it is not necessary. Do the CNA as soon as possible, its a first come first served sort of deal and may take a few tries to get in.

    You can always appeal after the 150% mark. Its not guaranteed but I appealed and they gave me an extra year of FA.

    My SO is a type 1 diabetic. He used to take lantus in the am but by the next am his blood sugar was very high and he had bad attitude mornings. Now he takes in in the pm and has much stabler blood sugars during day and night. Maybe the patients have different orders based on what's been proven to work for them in the past.

    I'd be interested in studying over winter break with anyone. I still have my anatomy text, but not a physio one.

    Email the professor outlining the three thesis statements you identified and their supporting evidence. Ask him/her to guide you in understanding how to identify the sole statement that is correct. The professor should be able to teach you even through email. Good luck!
