Rachie Roo, you may want to check with Southwest and find out what their cut off scores have been, this may help you evaluate your numbers and what your chances are. I would think possibly you might need to get your AP2 score up to an A or B, because I'm not familiar with anyone with a C in any of the required pre-reqs getting admitted, but I think either admissions or the nursing program could be more specific about that. Good luck!
Also, I have heard disparaging comments about all the local nursing programs
from the students in them. Some teachers are more helpful than others. Some programs have more difficult semesters than others. (Didn't U of M lose their accredidation
, but got it back - with a contingency?) The point is all the programs have their positives and negatives, and each of us needs to go for the one that works best for us. It's the student herself/himself that will determine how successful they are based on how hard they are willing to work and study.
