Hey there! I am currently going to school for a non-RN bachelor's degree and I'm very interested in going back to school, after I graduate, for either a BSN or Entry-level Master's in Nursing. One of the biggest issues that I'm finding is my grades. I tried Nursing out when I first started college, but due to deaths in my family my grades weren't that great. I was wondering if I were to retake some of these courses and got an A in all of them, would that help boost my chances of getting into one of these programs? Also, would explaining why my grades weren't the best at first be helpful?
