I ask here for advice on what to do with my situation. I applied to 3 community colleges in Oregon this year and got rejected to all of them. I wasn't surprised much since my GPA is not as competitive as a 4.0
I've worked as a CNA for 3 years -and loving my job and the people I help-I want to continue my dream to become an RN. I personally believe that I have the competency skills and heart to work as an RN. It saddens me when I see people who SHOULDN'T be nurses with the RN badge on their uniform - and trust me, I've met plenty. Even lazy CNAs that are terrible with patients, yet still got into nursing school. Feels like a kick to the face!
Anywho, I am a hopeless-scholar. My gpa of 3.3 did not land me anywhere, and I will have to take my pre-reqs all over (I got pretty much all B's, and 5 A's).
I am skipping the LPN --- RN bridge since I'm afraid I'd get stuck to being an LPN (which isn't bad at all, but I skipped that chance 3 years ago).
Is there any advice for someone in my position?
Edit : I forgot to add something important. Upon taking classes in my younger years, I did not take school seriously. I have a history of bad grades, but the improvement is obvious and visible. So, my transcript looks a little scary at first...
