Hello there! I am really desiring to become a nurse and eventually a nurse practioner. Unfortunately my GPA in HS (4.4) does not match my GPA at my university where I graduated with a 2.5 GPA from UCSB.
I am having a difficult time finding accelerated BSN programs to apply to that would accept my low GPA. It all seems very competitive. I would love a direct entry MSN program but they seem even more competitive. I am willing to do a generic BSN as well. Or even an associates degree at a community college but they seem to all have two year wait lists.
Does anyone know if it would be a better option to just become a LVN and then do a LVN to BSN program? Are those easier to get into? Any advice in programs anywhere in the US where I could become a nurse with my GPA?
