Second chance for RN program?
- 0Jan 25 by Nursing pursuitHow 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't...it'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.Last edit by Nursing pursuit on Jan 25 : Reason: Mistake

- 0Jan 25 by Nursing pursuitHey 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.

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!
