After this term I will be applying my first time to nursing school. I have some concerns, however. In my early college career, I received a few Fs and withdrew from a lot of courses. I was unsure about what I wanted to do, and a lot of family emergencies happened at once, and I forgot to withdraw from the courses I got Fs in.
If you don't account for my Fs, my gpa is 3.5 (and rising). I received an 89% in microbiology, many As in other science courses, and I'm expecting to get an A in anatomy as I've received 95+ % on every anatomy exam, lab and lecture, I've taken so far. I've been on the honor roll, got offered to join an honorary club for academic achievement.
I'm just afraid. I guess any advice would be nice. My wife tells me not to worry, especially since I'm a man and tons of graduating nursing students are saying hospitals and institutions of education are really wanting male nurses. I'm just so weary because I've done so well lately, and I want to be a nurse and care for others clinically so bad.

Oh, yes I almost forgot to tell you. Most college's will do a "one-time" removal of so many "F" grades
if they are over many years old... I think, it has to be past 7 years? I forgot what the name is called? The counselor makes an appeal
and you fill out some forms... The dean signs it. I had to do this for myself and most college's do not put it out there for students to know. I will research it for you! I'll be back!

Are any of your schools going to just look at pre req GPA? If so then they won't look at what grades you got in those other random classes.
