I graduated high school in 2002. I finished an LPN program through my high school at the time, but I was 17 so I didn't sit for my boards until a full year after completion of the program and failed it. I never tried again.... Meanwhile, I went to a University and nearly flunked out, as I was completely unfocused at the time. Now, I want to go back to school to be a midwife. And since my GPA at that school was literally 1.9 or something.... although my GPA at the community college I enrolled in 2008 is 3.2, they still combine my previous GPA making me ineligible for any accredited program out there!! Has anybody out there found a way to revive from a "young and dumb" time in their lives? I feel so stuck! I'm not interested in a program that won't allow me to fully pursue getting my CNM and MSN.
