Do I have a fighting chance?

Hi everyone, :)

I am presently doing pre-nursing at CPCC, and have been worried about my grades. Life's hectic (violins play in the back), and my grades sometimes suffer. :imbar

These are my grades sofar:

English 111- C ( i know, this is sooo sad)

English 112- B

Psy 150- B

Psy 241- A

Math 161- C :imbar

Math 155- A

CIS 110- C:imbar

CIS 111- C:imbar :imbar

A&P1- B

A&P2- A

Microbiology (175)- B

Microbiology (275)- not there yet

Communications (Public Speaking) - B

Chemistry 151 (Chem 1)- B

Chemistry 152 (Chem 2)- not yet

I still have to take a foreign language, so I guess I'll just take Spanish.

Myth in Human Culture (Humanities)- B

SOC 230 - A

SOC 210- A

60 hours volunteering in the ER

CNA certified

My choice of schools:

1. CPCC's nursing program

2. Just enter straight into UNC's nursing program

3. Mercy

4. CCHS

5. Cararrus College

I am still planning to take Bio 155 (nutrition), Chem 151 (Chem 2), Micro 275, Spanish 1, Spanish 2.

Do you guys think I have a chance? (My C's are scaring me) Maybe I'm just realllllly paranoid. :uhoh21:

Also, if anyone can suggest other schools in North Carolina, which are worth looking into? I would so appreciate it. I'm going to apply everywhere!!

Thanks! :)

Welcome to the NC Forum, CharlotteCNA :balloons: My advice is to contact the Allied Health or Nursing Coordinator at each of these schools of nursing. Only they are able to advise you as to your prospects for getting into the nursing programs. Best wishes to you :)

I would call and make an appointment with an academic advisor/rep from the schools you want to attend. Talking with someone will ease your anxiety and show them you are serious.

Don't sweat it!

I agree. Some schools go by GPA, others emphasize other requirements.

Good luck :clown:

Thanks guys :). Yeah, I'm meeting with someone from UNC soon..so that might relieve some stress.

Hey,

Please check into the program at UNCC really well, we have heard recently that they only have a 70% pass rate. I do not know how you would find out this information. I am currently at Queens University (presby school of nursing). I do not want to talk bad about any school. It is just what we have heard recently.

that really doesn't look too good...:(...thanks for the info.

Hey,

Thanks for the web site.:)

If you are in the area I heard East Carolina is a really good school.

For more recent (2005) results, here's the linK:

Wow, my school is really pathetic! Worst in the state for 2 years running, what a distinction (Robeson CC) (When I applied, the pass rate was in the mid 80s, low 90s, shows how quickly a program can go to pot, oh well)

Hi, I've been accepted at Queens in the ASN program? Do you like it? What is the passing rate? Any feedback would be nice. Thanks, Zazou.
