I am a 23 year old black male from Nashville TN trying to get into nursing school. I didnt get accepted into Lamar University in Beaumont TX so Im transferring to Southern University in Baton Rouge. I was trying to see if anybody knew how hard it is to get into their program. In my pre nursing pre reqs i have a gpa of a 3.0 but whats probably hurting me is my low overall gpa mainly because when I was a freshman I was just playing around. Oh and I will take the HESI Test again because last time i got a 79 (due to my low anatomy & phisiology score but dont get it twisted I made an A at Lamar in Pathophisiology) So if you have any information on Southern's nursing school or any nursing school in the Louisiana or Texas area please inform me on what you know. I need to know which schools to apply to that would increase my chance. (Oh and I have a misdemeanor from 3 years ago on my background that may or may not effect me. I received a complete background check in the state of Texas because i did a Declaratory Order Form so if you know anything about that feel free to comment on this as well).
