    I 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.

    Hi 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!

    I agree with what the previous poster wrote. Figure out what pre reqs you need to take, get A's in those classes & bring up that GPA.

    I do need to take some pre reqs I just don't want to take them and not hey into a nursing school. I already feel like I have wasted so much time and money getting this first degree that I am trying to do this as quickly and cheaply as possible.

    Like 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.

    Mertinserica- 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?

    I agree with the last post. Try going to community college. It's cheaper and you'll be getting a job earlier. then you can go back to school later if u want
