I'm new here so i'm sorry if this was asked before. I'm interested in pursing a BSN degree but don't know where to start. A little about my background: In 2010 I was attending a Cuny, taking courses in liberal arts. Well math isn't my strong point, so when I took the placement exam I failed the math portion and had to take remedial math. I passed the 1st semester, but in the 2nd semester I failed math 010 and other courses (I missed A LOT of classes due to morning sickness). I only completed that one year of college. My question is...whats next? I'm reading about pre-reqs and a whole lot of other things that I have to do before I apply. As u guys already know I can't take science courses unless i'm up to date in math. So would I have to go back to my school and at least get the basics out of the way, then transfer into a nursing program? Or can I apply as if Im a freshman again? lol
Thanks In advance!

If you are going straight for the BSN, then (from florida) you will have to complete all of the prerequisites. Once those are completed then you can apply to the nursing program.
You may want to speak with a nursing advisor about the requirements to get into a BSN program given the classes you have taken.
In the school I went to, they had this thing called the forgiveness program. If you messed up on a class, they would not transfer the grade in so it would not mess up your GPA. Not sure if every school has this, but it's great to know about.
Also, look into the retake policy in your school. And what happens to your GPA if you take a higher level math class and do well. Would that grade be the one that get's transferred or would all grades be transferred in not matter what.
You need to keep the GPA as high as possible.
