I'm a recent grad May '12 and this summer I've been doing a lot of soul searching on where and what I want to do.
My undergrad GPA is a sub-3.0 but my school averages everything together and I didn't retake a lot because I was really just ready to be finished.
Right now, I'm in a really good place for grad school because I have 100% support from my parents. I've talked to them and it's a solid "whatever you want we have everything else" so working isn't a problem so I'm really blessed with that. I've weighed RN vs BSN but because I have the support and time I want to pursue the BSN and because I know there's more room to move up.
I know I can handle an accelerated program because I have no children and everything is will be taken care of thanks to complete support.
But I'm worried about my GPA. As it is, the only classes I'd need to take are the prerequisite sciences and nutrition. With the others I have all As and a B in statistics.
I'm in TX right outside of Houston so I have a lot of options school wise in the area. Lone Star, San Jac, Baylor, UHV, TWU, UTHSC, etc.
Will that sub 3.0 hurt me? Or do I still have a shot if I work hard in those prerequisites I need and shoot for all As?
