could use some guidance...
- 0Jan 21, '13 by mertinsericaI have my bachelors in a non nursing field but my gpa isn't the greatest so I am having trouble deciding on my next steps to take in order to become and RN and eventually lactation consultant or CNM. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

- 0Jan 21, '13 by Lolita34Hi have you started taken the prerequisites to apply to a nursing program? Those will be the classes that are extremely important to earn high grades in. I believe most schools will look at that for the GPA. Contact the college you are interested in. I am sure the advisors will be able to explain all that you will need to apply and get accepted. Good luck!
- 0Jan 21, '13 by zoe92Like so many other things you have to apply for, admission to a nursing program is a gamble and you may not get in the first time. I would look at the programs around you and the length of time it'll take to complete them. That'll help you find which degree is the most quickly obtained.
- 0Jan 21, '13 by kickstuntMertinserica- I feel the exact same way! I got my bachelors last December and it was so expensive . The fortunate thing for me though is that I found out the community colleges are forming partnerships with the universities to provide ADN-BSN programs and the one I am applying to is cheaper than my bachelors degree by more than half. Maybe you can try looking to see if they have anything like that?
