Oct 27, '12 by pookypQuote from gurjit123You typed out this long thing saying only ppl with A's and good grades should get in nursing school. Yet at the end you state ppl in your BSN program got A's in their pre reqs or science classes and are struggling. Lol guess grades DONT matter.why are you applying to a school that has a waiting list. apply to a school that ranks you based on your grades. Those types of schools are what nursing is really about. You'll be in nursing school with some of the smartest ppl that worked really hard to get in. I am not sure if the school your applying to is based on lottery. Most schools that are ranked based have no waiting list. It's all about the top grade students that get in. Also if you get good grades and b4 applying that will help you so much once you get in. You will have to work less hard and will learn so much. Many of the lottery schools at there shouldn't exist. It takes away the chance for those that worked hard but didn't get in only because they got more B's than A's. I don't think that it's fair that students that get C's get into nursing school just by luck. I think they should make all nursing colleges in American including community based on grades. They should not have any waiting list. BSN programs will fill up with A students. Community colleges should fill up with B students. C students should have the option of private education since they didn't get the A's and B's. Because I strongly believe that if you can't get an A or an B in your basic classes you will never make it out of nursing school and be able to pass the state test. Unless you magically become an A and B student in nursing school which won't happen. I have ppl in my BSN program with me that were A students in their basic science classes and are barely passing their nursing exams. Anyways sorry to make this long. Look into state programs like the BSN programs. They have no waiting list.
Oct 27, '12 by nguyency77Quote from pookypThe whole A-B-C thing translating to good or bad nurses, I've found on this site, is pretty much anecdotal. The B and C students claim it doesn't matter (which, it might not), whereas the A students are saying academics are everything. The point is, every person is different and you won't really know until you're in the program and see if it really applies to you. I just didn't read all of that long post, lol.You typed out this long thing saying only ppl with A's and good grades should get in nursing school.

When I was waiting for my application to be accepted, I was only afraid of not getting in.Then, when I got accepted, I was only worried about having no life.Now that I'm halfway through my first semester, I'm not worried about anything. I'm learning so much, am now sure nursing is for me, and having the time of my life. I really don't have a life, but I don't care. It's worth it.
