Hey my wonderful, intelligent, HELPFUL fellow students !
I'm new to this forum but, REALLY need some help! I'm a mommy...(smiling) My son is 10 months old now and I'm finishing up undergrad as a single mother who wants to transition from a Political Science major into nursing. I know it sounds crazy but, I absolutely LOVE motherhood and I want a job that is flexible and does NOT allow me to bring my work home. When I'm home, I always give my full attention to the baby and it shows in the way that he's always bubbly and laughing. ANYWAYS, sorry for rambling but, I've taken Anatomy, Micro and Human Growth and I did OK. I got an A in Human Growth, a B in Micro and I might scratch out a B+ in Anatomy. I'm REALLY DISCOURAGED because I really don't feel like this is very competitive. I go to UF and would like to get into their program in order to stay in graduate housing and keep my kid in daycare on campus. But, my other options would be UNF, UCF, FSU, USA (Alabama), and any other school that would require similar pre-reqs and NO GRE. I'm taking the GRE soon so, wish me luck
! What do you all suggest? My current GPA is around 3.7, I believe but, I hear that it should be a lot closer to a 4.0 to be competitive. I really need to get into a nursing school to make a better life for me and the baby...He's my world...
Thanks everyone and I hope that you all get to be whatever you aspire to be.
