Hello everyone. I am lost, depressed, hopeless & need your advice. I currently go to LaGuardia Community College as a pre-nursing student. I just finished up my first session with 1.9 GPA, which I am definitely not happy about
. I got a B+ in english composition 1 & a C in general psychology which are 2 of the 5 key courses to be admitted in the nursing program. I was trying to get permission to re-take psychology to get an A but was denied because I already have a passing grade. In addition I barely passed statistics & urban sociology with a D in both classes. Luckily I am granted permission to re-take statistics. I don't think I'll take sociology over as it is no longer in needed for my degree. I spoke to a lady who works in the nursing office & was told that I must get an A in all my classes if I want to get accepted into the RN program. The lady stressed that the nursing program is extremely competitive & there is no way I can get into the RN program with a C but I might be able to get into the LPN program. I will admit that I am extremely crushed by hearing that because I wanted to go straight in the RN so badly. I'm not sure what to do & I can't stop beating myself up for not trying harder to get better grades. I just want to be a RN, get my BSN & get everything over with. Has anyone been in the same boat as me? Please tell me what you did & how did you cope with the news? I am really stressed out about this crying & everything
. I would really appreciate your help & would like to thank everyone in advance

Step back and take a look at your situation. Why did you get low grades? What will you do differently? How can you ensure the 2nd time will be success?
sigh well you're options are really limited because even with LPN a key course prereq with a C may not cut it as that too is very competitive. At this point do your best to try to get into to the LPN at lagcc and if not then transfer to another community college that has nursing and redo your prereqs there. Study early and study hard .. you must get all A's in the rest of prereqs. Good luck. Get your transfer paper works ready so if you dont get in lagcc you can move on
