I am currently a practicing Chiropractor with the aspirations of becoming a Nurse Anesthetist. I recently received admissions to KU School of Nursing. Aside from loans I do not qualify for financial aid. Unfortunately, I have loans under my name for myself and my husband and as a result I have a tremendous amount of debt. Therefore I have applied to Research College of Nursing Accelerated BSN Program, in order to work my nursing school loans off through a loan forgiveness program associated with this school. This sounds like the perfect solution.
HOWEVER, I am afraid my grades will suffer due to the accelerated pace, and lower my odds of being admitted into a CRNA Program. I currently have a cum. GPA of 3.6. I am married with a 5 year old daughter. Can someone please give me input on what their grades were like in an accelerated BSN program, 18 months.
