Hello. I'm new on this site, and I find it to be very helpful and inspiring. Anyway, I just need some advice from fellow students.
I'm from California. I attended San Joaquin Delta College, and took my prerequisites there: Human Anatomy, Physiology, Micro, Nutrition, and other general eds. Also, I got an A in Eng 01A (which is considered to be Eng Compositon I in TCC), and an A in Eng 1D (Eng Comp II). However, my family relocated to Virginia. One of our relatives mentioned TCC. I applied, and got accepted, but I'm still waiting for my prerequisites to be evaluated. I have spoken with a counselor at TCC, who said I will be able to apply for their nursing program in the Fall. I've had a B in anatomy, a C in Micro, and a C in Physiology. I know that the program is competitive, but do I still have a chance? Also, how is the program? What others schools would you recommend?
I also heard about the Sentara's school of nursing. I've already did some research, and I found threads that talked about their RN program, which I assume to be an ADN program. However, when I looked on Sentara's official website, I saw that they only have the RN to BSN program. So, I'm assuming they don't offer the ADN program anymore?
I'm also considering to become a CNA, since I don't feel too good about my grades to be accepted to a Nursing program. Should I become a CNA, apply to other schools? I really want to become a nurse, but with so many requirements, I feel so lost. I'm not looking for an easy out, just different ways to complete my goals if I get rejected.
For those threads that talked about never giving up, thanks so much for inspiring me!
