i received a bachelor of arts degree in psychology from u of p in 09 and would like to get a bsn degree, preferably through an asbn program asap. unfortunately my undergrad gpa is well bellow par, mostly due to both personal and family crisis. does anyone have any suggestions for programs (asbn or not) that are more willing to accept students with a somewhat lower gpa? everything that i have heard is saying that i need almost a 4.0 gpa just to get in-is this really true? also, can anyone share suggestions as to completing the needed pre reqs asap (and with a full time outside job)? i am enrolled in a few online classes through pcc, but can not start them for another month.
i am also a bit worried about finding a job after i get a degree. this said, the earning potential for a nurse in significantly higher than that of an msw in oregon-which is the other career path i am considering.
thank you sooo much!
