I am currently a student at Florida International University who is pursuing a bachelor's degree in Nursing. FIU's nursing program is strict, which means that they don't allow repeats in any of their science core subjects ( which are microbiology and survey of chemistry). I just took Microbiology and ended the class with a C which does not guarantee a spot in the Nursing school. Even students with a B in their courses and with great GPA's have a hard time getting into FIU's nursing program... Should I continue at FIU in hopes of maybe getting into their program, acing Chemistry and my other nursing prereqs, or should I look into other schools in FL which offer repeat chances for core classes like Microbio...
Does anyone know of any good colleges that offer this chance and aren't as strict as FIU?
Also, I really wanted to join the Baptist Health Scholars program which I know is partnered with NOVA and FIU for their nursing bachelors program... Does anyone know of any other colleges or community colleges that offer a partnership program like this?
