I was hoping someone who is in the process of completing a MSN program would help me...
I am planning on applying to grad school (FNP programs) but I feel my chances of being accepted are slim. Here's my situation: my undergraduate GPA is 2.9- with nursing being 3.45 - and am currently completing a BSN from Thomas Edison State College. Three of the classes are master level and I've gotten A's on these classes. I've actually done well on all nursing classes (mostly As with one B). I worked in a subacute unit for one year and have been on a medical-surgical/oncology unit for two and half years. However, I had to withdraw from classes at TESC twice due to family reasons/health issues. I am afraid that once my application is reviewed I won't be seen as a desirable candidate. However, I resumed classes this past July and have gotten very good grades. I am one class away from completing the BSN. I also plan on obtaining the chemo certification, the OCN and med-surg certification, ACLS and take the GRE to improve my chances of being accepted to grad school. I will be doing it this coming year.
What chances do I have of being accepted into a program and what else could I do to improve my chances?
Thank you very much for your reply and sorry for the lengthy post!!
