I was dismissed from the ABSN program due to academic reasons. Since my passion is still in nursing, I continued and took all prerequisites again.  I am going to apply to only Community colleges.

A&P 1       4.0

A&P 2       4.0

Micro        3.7

Math         4.0

B's in Arts classes. 

Last week, I took and passed TEAS with 89%.

What do you guys think can I get into an ADN program with this application? Or is this impossible for me after being dismissed from one nursing program?

So, what is your strategy now? Do you think we can get into something?

I went to a CC and there were several students that were dismissed from a BSN program and then decided to go the CC route. I don't think you will have a problem at all!!

Can you please tell which community college?

I’m in Indiana. Unless you were dropped for something illegal, I think you would be fine as long as the grades are there. Keep in mind all nursing programs are competitive.

You have shown an extreme effort to get the background information you need. Now, how can you improve your acquisition of skills and knowledge in a nursing program? I am not being mean but do you know why you failed the ABSN program...study skills, test taking skills, skill acquisition,  time management etc.

I recently read about  Daisy award given to one of our graduates who is a practicing ICU RN.  In school he had to repeat a course. He was easy going, attempted every challenge with a serious attitude.  But put in a tremendous amount of effort. He engaged with the faculty, other students and the material. 

The effort you have shown with repeating courses shows your intense effort in achieving your RN. 

If your school asks for an essay, highlight all you have done academically  and personally to meet the RN school head on. Is it possible to get a reference from one of your former professors that saw your passion for nursing education?

I think it depends why you were dropped.  Was it due to grades, test average, etc?  The grades you listed seemed fine so not sure why you were dismissed...

It might depend on why you dropped but try!

Same boat just got dismissed. I contacted some schools for ABSN some won’t take you after 3 years. I contacted university of Texas at Arlington you cannot fail a single course, you have to wait 3 years before you can apply after failing a nursing course at another school it does not matter what state.
