I am a pre-nursing student (junior in college) who is in the process of applying to nursing school. However, I'm feeling a bit discouraged/stressed about it at the moment.
I am currently dealing with always worrying if all my application things will arrive prior to the deadline and if my grades are good enough to apply.
My gpa is 3.75 right now I believe. But my science gpa is probably 3.5.
I recently went to an advisor at one of my prospective nursing schools and she made it clear that they wanted above a 3.0 gpa on sciences courses and pointed out that I had B's on my transcript in anatomy and chemistry and that I should aim for A's. And this sort of discouraged me about being good enough for them.
I'm hoping this stress passes soon and that everything will hopefully work out for the best.
Anyone else have this feeling about applying?

Your overall GPA is excellent, plus a 3.5gpa in science pre-reqs is pretty good I suppose
. Have you taken the TEAS?
Are there any additonal factors that contribute towards your chances of getting in such as volunteer hours, recommendation letters, being bilingual, ect? Apply to as many nursing programs
as possible, you might be surprised. I overall think you have an excellent chance though, I wouldn't stress out if I were you.
