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 GPA. it was a 2.2. many things went on in the first 4-5 semesters of college(family troubles and job issues) that caused me to not go to class, withdraw and pretty much not be a responsible student. if course that all comes back to bite me now that i want to go into nursing.
I currently have been working as a Medical Secretary in the ER for almost four years now so i know what nursing will entail.
i live in NYC and have already talked to Molloy College about their accelerated program but told me off the bat with my very low GPA i would not be considered at all for most ABSN programs. I was told to try community college. Now since i already have my BA going back to a CC seemed like such a downgrade but i am now realizing that is not so i have signed up to start taking classes in the winter for Nassau CC.
Now my question is this. NCC only looks at the 13 credit pre reqs towards your nuursing app(A&P I, Statistics, Eng 101, Psych 101). I took 3 of the 4 pre reqs but got horrid grades(C in eng, C in psych and D in stats, YIKES!) because i never went to class. Im taking over the stats class in winter, should i take over the two classes I got Cs in as well? Also with a GPA as atrocious as mine, what do you believe my chances are to get into a 2yr RN program? Please be honest. I really do want to be a nurse but feel as though I am doomed.
