Hello guys.... I really wanted to get opinions from others in similar situations or inside knowledge of criteria of many nursing programs. I graduated in 2011 with a B.S in business management from Brooklyn College with a mere gap of 2.4 I didn't excel in school because i thought i would be some entrepreneur business guru. i just wanted a degree to claim. And although i have meet many financial goals I'm still not pleased. I'm currently taking my pre reqs at a community college. Its so competitive I'm really worried about having a chance to get into a program. Im interested in accelerated programs stony brook, nyu, lehman, suny downstate, new rochelle, and I'm willing to go the regular b.s route as well with any school that will take me.

Previous gpa from degree 2.4

Science pre reqs 3.86

Experience Ive been working with doctors since 14 (dentist, chiropractor, dermatologist, ob/gyn ,primary care facility which house physchologist, cardiologist, soon tech, labs, podiatrist, as well as pain management doctors) I have a large range of knowledge from each field by dictating for physicians, assisting, and much more

Think i have a chance?

Don't be deterred, I graduated with a 2.3 GPA. I made sure I had a plethora of experience and made sure my prereqs were Stella and boom an acceptance letters is in the mail for me. If I can get in somewhere you can also. And yes it is an accelerated course. Good Luck
