Pre- Nursing Student can't get into BSN nursing program

  1. I am a transfer student, but the school i just transferred to just denied me from being in their nursing program. I am in the state of Louisiana. I really want to be a nurse and if I have to start as a ASN first I will. The trouble is getting into a nursing program. My TEAS test is low, I failed two classes my sophomore year and I have 89 hours. I have to have a degree to stay at the school, but I do not want to change my major. Can someone enlighten me on the steps to take because my nursing GPA is 2.9 but everyone I try to talk to has closed the door on me SOMEONE PLEASE HELP if I could go somewhere in the spring time I will I have already did applications at different schools just to see what they say. I know I am not the only one out there that is going through this so could someone please help me
    PS: where in the northern part of Louisiana can I retake my TEAS Test

    I know nothing of TEAS testing since we don't have to take that for my nursing program entrance. If you got a 2.9GPA, you at least got one or more C's in one science class. I suggest you retake all the classes you got C's in. This will boost your chance in getting in a college that is GPA admission based only. Other than that, try applying to other colleges without TEAS entry

    ULM? Just curious.

    If you haven't already, and if you can afford it, apply at some of the schools in South Arkansas. UAM is supposed to be a great program, as is SAU. Both are within driving distance of Northern LA, depending on where exactly you are. I would recommend retaking the classes you got Cs in and trying to bring your grades up. BSN programs are competitive.

    Also, sending PM.
