    Hi there,

    So I was accepted into Monroe College in the Bronx. I was accepted into their LPN program. Started January 2012 and program ended in December 2012. Started Monoe College RN AAS program January 2013. Took the LPN (NCLEX) boards in March 2013 and passed. Worked as LPN per diem while finishing the RN program. RN program ended in December 2013. Took my boards in April 2014 and passed. At this time Monroe started their BSN program, It wasn't accredited so I was accepted to Downstate and got my bachelors. Although many would say why did you start from scratch, being that I had another Bachelors degree... I have no regrets. I was able to feel out whether or not I like nursing through the roles of being a LPN and RN. My advice to everyone reading this is... DONT let a low GPA discourage you from doing what you want to do. It may have took me longer to become a RN but I still reach my goal. Good Luck to everyone. You Can Do it!
