Hello everyone! I'm pretty sure there are tons of forums on this very topic(believe me I have read them) but i still have more questions.... I graduated with an undergrad degree in interdisciplinary studies with a VERY low... Read More

    I'm not sure what NCc needs, but Suffolk requires pre-rec
    Chemistry
    Anatomy & physiology 1 and 2
    Phycology
    Sociology
    English
    To graduate
    A second English
    Phycology life span
    Humanities

    I would take all above courses, and apply.
    Once you graduate with your RN, do your RN to BSN.
    I know that's not what you want to hear, but most accelerated programs won't accept you, unfortunately.

    Or you can take all of them again and apply to ABSN and maybe you'll get in

    Good luck

    if they only look at 4 classes to calculate your gpa that should be pretty easy. you could have those knocked out with As in 6 months (spring/summer semesters). the CC close to me looks at nine classes and you need a 3.6+ gpa.

    Look, I'm in a similar situation, don't give up. I did great my first year of undergrad, my sophomore year I transferred and bombed that year. Since I did not want to give up, I transferred back to my original college and worked my ass off to maintain a GPA above 3.0, however my GPA from the school I transferred to still drops my GPA to a 2.7 something. I have had to repeat classes and usually got B's and A's. I was in a similar situation were I had family issues (mainly financial, needy parent, and sick grandparent), I also had a friend at school stab me in the back and got me in trouble to the point where most of the teachers I had classes with refuse to give me recommendations. Take the classes you need to repeat, and apply. Don't give up, because I haven't. =)

    Thanks for all of your input! Almost forgot I made this post!

    It's been 8 or 9 months and I am currently at NCC doing summer classes retaking statistics and english 102. I hope they will bypass my old transcript because I plan to ACE all the pre-reqs! One thing I learned is NEVER give up! Even though my grades were bad my last 3 semester grades showed my growth. While some programs are telling me no there is going to be one program that will tell me yes! I think I will get my ASN and do an RN to BSN. I did want to do a straight BSN but i'm trying to be realistic. I will still apply for BSN programs but plan on applying to the Spring 2014 NCC evening program!

    Anyone have any sucess stories to share whoever is in this same situation?

    I'll appreciate immensely!

    I will be honest, it's best retaking anything with a C or below. I did it & my gpa went from a 1.93 to a 3.47 it's worth a shot!!
