  3. So lost, confused, angry.. future in nursing troubles
    For most nursing schools the minimum gpa usually doesn't get you in. For example, I know of a few programs with the minimum gpa of 2.5, but the only students that get in have a gpa of 3.3 or above. I...

  10. Edison state college- Lee county and surrounding areas
    Biology isn't on the nursing catalog because it doesn't go toward your nursing degree. You just need to take it because the school requires it as a prereq to take a&p and microbiology. My CC in...

  13. Edison state college- Lee county and surrounding areas
    What classes did you take so far? I am kind of confused since you say a grade for a 1 credit class and none of the nursing prereqs are one credit. Admission really depends on how many points you get....

  15. Is it right to pursue nursing if the school is 2 hrs away from husband & kids?
    I have to agree with vintagemother. I think you should work out a plan with your husband. Maybe you can give nursing school all your attention Monday to Friday. Then Saturday to Sunday you can...

  16. Did you take all pre-reqs before applying?
    It really depends on your school. The program I am applying to suggests having at least 7 out of the 9 pre/coreqs done before applying. I will be applying after the fall 2013 semester (with 7 done),...

    No, you can't skip nursing school and take the NCLEX. A bachelors in a different degree wont do anything for you. In my state, immigrants with nursing/doctor degrees, experience and other...

  21. Transfer student, Ex Military, ADN to BSN or straight to BSN?
    1. It really depends on where you live. Call around the hospitals you plan to work at after you graduate and ask. In big cities they usually only hire BSN nurses in the hospital, but some rural areas...

  23. Has anyone gone from a BA to a BSN?
    No, you can not get your BSN online. The only people that can do that are ADN RNs. This is because in order to become a nurse, clinical skills are essential. For example, would you want a nurse to...
