Hello and thanks for taking the time to look. I am a male nursing student in a BSN and military veteran. I've been lurking these forums for a while now and finally am actually going to post something. So basically I had no clue what I wanted to do after I got out of the military but knew I loved science. So for my first two years of school I blindly took any and every biology, physics, and chemistry class that I could with no plan. Unfortunately not having a plan to motivate myself and/or studying got me a C in Pathophysiology. After I found my calling (nursing!) I realized that this C I got could really hurt. I am contemplating retaking it for a couple of reasons but I am unsure:
1) I have all As and Bs and this C is a dent in my GPA
2) I will 100% be pursuing an advanced practice degree (AACNP or CRNA go figure right) and fear that this C would hurt my chances significantly as not only is it a C but in a course important to nursing.
Would taking this course again be worth it? My current GPA is 3.4 and I am extremely confident in my ability to get all As and Bs in my next 12 classes. Will the fact that I got Bs or higher in General Chemistry I & II, A & P I & 2, Organic Chemistry I, Physics I, Microbiology, and Astronomy help to negate this C? My rationale could be wrong here so please correct me. Also veterans affairs pays for my schooling but any retakes I would have to fund myself. Should I just take an graduate level Advanced Pathophysiology course when I am done and call it a day?
