Dear Nurse Beth,
What should I do if I was dismissed from a nursing program halfway through the last semester of the program? Where should I look to find a school that will accept a student who failed 8 weeks before graduating for literally one semester?
I'm so sorry about your situation. To be dropped during last semester makes it even more traumatic. Have you asked if your school will allow you to repeat the final semester?
You don't give the reason for being dropped, which makes it hard to answer your question. Whether or not your school will work with you depends on the reason for dismissal, your aptitude, their flexibility, and their policy. If the reason was academic, you could consider getting a tutor.
As far as being accepted to another school, you will just have to apply to different schools
. Nursing programs
typically do not encourage mid-program transfers, but every school has its own admission and transfer criteria.
