I am currently an undergraduate student (about to start junior year), but after graduation I want to start an accelerated nursing program (for AAS not BSN). I am trying to take my pre-reqs now and hope to get into Beth Israel in New York. I have two questions about admissions.
1. I believe I can get an A in my science classes and have so far gotten an A in my liberal arts classes, however, I got a D in College Algebra and an A in Mathematical Survey. If I score well on my pre-nursing exam (in math), will this hurt my chances of getting into nursing school? What if I indicate I plan to retake math the summer before starting (I also have to take Human Anatomy and Physiology II the summer before I start, since it will not fit into my schedule).
2. My top choice is Beth Israel, I looked into Borough of Manhattan Community College, but from what I have read on the site it is very very difficult to get in and stay in. Is this true? What are other nursing programs in New York City or maybe even New Jersey (near New York) that I should look into?
Thanks so much everyone!
