Hi guys i'm very discourage right now. i really want to be a nurse, but i'm in a situation that just make thing seem hopeless. i took all my Perquisite. my gpa for my science class are only 2.0 and most ADN program want at least 2.5. my mistake was not changing school to do my perquisite, where its easier. i just bite the bullet and tell my self i can do it, but i didn't.
I have already recieved a Ds in anathomy, physiology and microbiology the first time i took it. the second time i took those class again i recieve B,B, &C. Averaging out all the grade i took the first time and the second time my science gpa grade doesn't add up to 2.5. i'm feeling very discourage and stupid. what other option do i have at this point. should i keep on retaking those class until my science gpa hit 2.5?
info: im in california
i need help!
Well your right many places look at your GPA however not all and I can think of a couple other options you might want to consider.
first of all look at discovernursing.com they have a list of all schools all programs for your area look and find out what they all want, talk to your advisor at school see if they have any options for you there.
If all that doesn't pan out to anything, maybe try doing a "step" program.
Have you considered doing an LVN course? LVN's do many of the samethings as RN's but have a smaller scope of practice and not as much responsibility as the RN, you might find it something you could do until you got the grades worked out. Also there is slightly less competition (although that seems to be changing in many places) for the LVN-RN route. Also from the LVN stand point you could go on to do Diploma nursing its an RN withouth the Associate degree there for no sciences needed however I believe its very limited we actually have this option at our school they highly discourage it and there is no wait right now, but you do have to have your LVN. The big clincher is you can't work anywhere but Ca not sure what other states have it, however in my search I am noticing many schools offering programs for diploma nurses to get their BSN or MSN.
So there are a few more options left don't get discouraged, however you are going to need to change somethings to do better in the courses you take lighten your load improve study habits etc...
