I desperately need an informed opinion. I am a pre-nursing student and I have an overall GPA of 3.8 but have 3 Fs in my transcript and 5 W. I went on a little bit of a roller coaster ride with school. Initially I was an accounting major but after the second year I got really bored and hated it, so I changed my major to biology (pre-nursing). I also had a bad semester and it was during the time my husband and I split so that was really difficult for me and I went into depression and dropped out of school. Because I couldn't finish withdrawing from the classes on time, I ended up getting 2 Fs and 2 Ws. Currently I am back in school but in the beginning of this semester I had to withdraw from one of the classes, because the workload was too much to handle as I have 3 science courses. However I had an incident with one of my professors. Basically long story short, the professor called me a moron in front of the whole class because I made a mistake that was against the safety rules of the laboratory. I stood up for myself and told her that calling a student a moron for a mistake that was genuinely made was unprofessional. We come to school to learn. if we knew everything from the start, then we wouldn't need to spend thousands of dollars to acquire an education. So I walked out and went to the registrars office to see if they would make an exception for me to drop the class because the deadline for dropping had already passed. They suggested that I not go to class anymore and that once the semester is over the grade will be an F or WF and I can retake and replace my grade and they will make sure that my GPA is not affected. I have already replaced the first two Fs (hence an improvement in my GPA) but I have to wait for the next semester to be able to replace the last F.
Do nursing schools
look at Fs and Ws on your transcripts negatively? I am really worried but I cannot handle name calling and disrespect especially coming from someone from whom you are trying to learn. Being able to help people has always been something that I wanted to do hence getting into an accredited nursing school
will be a dream come true!
Thanks in advance! (sorry for my really long story!)
