Second chance for RN program?

  1. 0 How can I convince the Nursing Readmission Committee to get me back into the Nursing program? I've sent a letter for my appeal and I'm really worried that they may not let me back in. In my school, some people get a second chance and some don''s up to readmission which is unfair. I've done well on all my pre-nursing classes with nothing less than a B- as well as a mix of A's and B's for most of my classes. I'm also volunteering at a hospital and thought maybe I can get a reference or letter of recommendation to give me a better chance? Is that a good idea?...I'm starting to feel like this is a nothing I can do situation. The pre-nursing classes I finished is like 60% of the program...I would hate for all that work to go for nothing.

    Why the need for appealing? For what reason were you dimissed? It sounds like your grades were good. Just trying to get some background in order to give great advice =)

    Hey Bucky, you can read my situation in detail under "troubled nursing student". In short, I failed 2 classes. I took 6 classes and passed 4 out of the 6. I really don't know why I took microbiology with lab with these nursing classes, that class I should of took before getting accepted into nursing. Now I'm back in general studies finishing up my last pre-req. class which is dev. psychology. I've sent a letter to readmission so all I can do now is wait and hope I'll get reaccepted to take the 2 classes I failed.

    Isn't micro considered a gen ed? That stinks that you'd lose your place in the nursing program based on a gen ed grade! Have you re-taken the class yet, or currently doing so? You could point out how much better you're doing or did by re-taking the failed classes, to show how re-focused you are. I'm not sure a letter of recommendation from your volunteering position would do much to vouch for academic abilities, but someone else might have a totally different opinion about that!

    I didn't fail micro, Im saying that I should of finished all my gen. ed. classes before starting nursing. Taking micro in addition to my nursing classes was not a good idea.

    Hello, my situation was that I took all prerequisite classes in a regular City college, and for some reason they didn't accept me to their nursing program. I appealed, but by the time they sent me a letter that they decided to accept me, I found a small private nursing school that was happy to have me. So, my advice is shop around and you will not be disappointed.
