Denied from nursing schools

buckeye47 buckeye47 (New) New


I am currently a sophomore student at The Ohio State University. As a freshman last year, I was denied acceptance into the program. This year, I decided to reapply, but also apply to many other schools in order to give myself some options. I have applied to OSU, Mt. Carmel, Otterbein, San Francisco, Cincinnatti, and Florida. I was denied from Mt. Carmel's advanced placement, Otterbein, and San Francisco. I really do not want to go to Cincy, unless I have no other options. I am still waiting to hear back from Florida and OSU, however since both programs are very competitive, I doubt I will get in. I have a 3.5 gpa, am a state tested nurse's aide, and have lots of work and volunteer experience. I am lost.. I have no idea what to do from here. I want to either stay in Columbus, OH or transfer to a school in a warmer place, such as Florida. Can anyone offer me any advice? I never thought I would be in this situation, again. I have also considered applying to more nursing schools now to give me some more options, but it is already May, therefore many deadlines have passed. I have looked into switching my major, but I am not interested in doing that. I know what I want to do with my life, and that is become a nurse. I am so confused. Any help, advice, or thoughts would be much appreciated!!

I am sorry you haven't gotten into your first choice program yet. Depending on what happens with the other schools you are waiting to hear from - I would reapply, and take a great deal of time on your application essays. You have an excellent GPA and it sounds like experience as well. It is hard now with so many ppl with 4.0s or graduate degrees applying to BSN programs. It isn't that you and so many others aren't great applicants, it's just that there are so many great applicants. I think you should keep applying and take great care in writing your essay to answer what is being asked of you in a concise, error free essay... Grammatically perfect, easy to read, no fluff.

have you taken your nursing pre req's?

not taking these classes will cause you to be overlooked for other students.
