Hello, thanks for replying! I can't retake with a C. At my school, it is only if you get a D or F that you can retake and replace the grade. Do you know if most nursing schools look at the higher grade, or take an average of the two?
IDK, if you can get a grade forgiveness, it may look better. As long as the grade is replaced; not added on. Colleges look past withdrawing and forgiving. Everyone does it. It can be a good strategic move, but meet with an academic adviser tomorrow and check! I've had an academic adviser tell me "you should have withdrawn and grade forgiven it. Now, this grade is there for life." See what they say.
IDK how competitive your program is, but I got a C in sadistics and was just glad it was done. A realistic nursing program knows all students will have 'something' they struggle with. Chem & Sadistics was mine.
