I recently just graduated college in June and have a bachelors in a non-nursing related subject. I have been thinking seriously about changing direction and getting into nursing for quite some time. I live on Long Island and I have been looking into various nursing programs which are not insanely expensive. I have mostly looked into Adelphi, Molloy, and NYIT.
I did look into these programs and some of them do not require these courses to get in because they allow you to take them once you are already in the nursing program. Due to my financial situation.... I am looking to get into a nursing program and THEN complete all of the prerequisites once I am in it..... because I am terrified that I will spend all this money on taking the prerequisites, then apply to nursing programs only to be denied by the school/program. I am worried that I will not be able to get into any of these schools without a background in math, bio, chem, A&P I and II, etc....
I am supposed to hear back from my #1 choice in September to know if I got in for the Spring 2012 semester. I am so nervous that I will not be able to get in. I want to go for my BSN and I am willing to work my butt off to get in, but I just feel so bad about myself and feel like I wont get in due to my low college GPA (3.3) and my non-related Bachelors degree (Criminal Justice). I would like to know what peoples GPA's were who got accepted into Nursing School as well as where they went, and for those who went to nursing school who already had a non-related bachelors degree, what was the bachelors in? Thanks for any advice!!!

Balancing school full time along with working part time should be fun too........
