Changing career to nursing......hopefully.

  1. Hello,

    I am interested in changing careers from social work to nursing. I have been looking at some accelerated bsn programs in Ca and even other states. My dilemma is that I don't have a strong undergrad gpa (2.5) but my prerequisites which have been completed since last year is a 4.0. I also have an MSW which I obtained a 3.8 in. When i applied to my MSW program I was placed on a conditional acceptance in which I had to have a 3.0 in the first semester of classes to continue in the program and I was able to obtain a 4.0.

    Since I'm pursuing a second bachelors, I doubt programs will even look at my masters. Do I have a chance to get into an accelerated program although they are requiring at least a 3.0 in previous undergrad degree?

    Thank you

    It really depends on the program. You need to present your case to as many schools as meet your criteria in terms of price and location, and see what happens.
