I just received my letter today, 'DENIED' Admission'.
I applied for Azusa Pacific University Entry Level Masters' in nursing (ELM) program for FALL 2018 cohort, requesting San Diego regional campus only.
I graduated with a bachelor degree in Liberal Arts from Excelsior College in October 2017, with an overall 3.5 GPA.
I graduated from Southwestern College in May of 2017 with an Associates of Arts Degree in : Allied Health
Science prerequisites were: CHEM 100: 'A', CHEM Organic: 'A', Microbiology: 'B', Psychology: 'B', Sociology: 'A', Anatomy Phys I: 'C', Anatomy Phys II: 'B'.
Non Science prerequisites were: Lifespan Growth Development: 'A', Statistics: 'B', Oral Communication: 'A'.
I had not yet completed a 'Research Methods in Psych/Sociology' course.
At Southwestern College, I was a member of Psi Theta Kappa honor society. My GPA for my AA in Allied Health from Southwestern College was 3.78
At the time that I submitted my application I was enrolled in a CNA program. I just graduated from my CNA course with an 'A' on December 14th.
I really was not expecting to be DENIED admission to APU ELM. I am really surprised. I also applied to USD's MEPN. I will be retaking 'Anatomy & Physiology I' via Excelsior Colleges' BIOX 104 Exam for credit to hopefully earn at least a 'B' this time around.
All my college credits were earned while working full-time as a US Navy Enlisted Sailor.
My plans are to attend nursing school
full-time immediately following retiring from the Navy in August of 2018, with over 21 years of Military Service including 5 years as an active duty US Marine.
I guess I better get started on plan C, apply to Cal State San Marcos: 2nd Degree Accelerated Bachelor's and plan D, apply to National University's BSN program.
