I am new to this website but have many questions and was looking for some help! I go to North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC. I am in the process of getting a 4 year degree in Biological Sciences with a concentration in Human Biology along with a minor in Spanish. After the four years, I will have lots of hours volunteering at hospitals, working in some research in hospitals, studying abroad with (hopefully) fluency in spanish, and other extracurricular service activities. I want to go to accelerated nursing school in Charlotte (close to home) after I get my 4 year degree. Mercy seems like a great option because it is close, inexpensive, and fast. I saw on the website that they only admit 10 students into the ABSN program. If I keep my GPA around a 3.6 will I have a good chance of getting in? Is this a good option? I am wanted to join a "traveling doctors" as a nurse afterwards to get experience before possibly specializing. Any helpful suggestions as to what I should do or if I am on a good track thus far?
