Help

  1. Hi guys,
    I am currently doing some pre-requisite classes for the nursing program. I have gotten two C- in two science classes, I was wondering if that would effect my chances of getting into a good nursing school. Please help me ! I am so lost and would greatly appreciate all the help I could get. Thank you

    It's very likely to keep you out, completely ....but you'll need to check with the specific programs you're interested in to know for sure.

    Is this including the possibility of re-taking the science classes ?

    Some programs won't acknowledge retakes and some will average the retake grade with the original grade. This is why it's important to look at the program(s) you're specifically interested in. They're all different.

    This.

    It's also important to note that a lot of schools (mine included) won't let you retake a class unless you have a D or an F. I got a C in a class a few years ago and wanted to retake it to get a better grade, but they wouldn't let me because a C is technically passing.
