It has been quite a while since I posted due too circumstances in my life and studying. I wanted to post this in regards to the pressure I am feeling and my nerves getting ready for nursing school.
I am currently planning on applying for the nursing ADN program and after completing the ADN program I was hoping to get a job and while working finish off my bachelors. The reason why I am feeling a bit of pressure is because this semester just finished for me after completing all my pre-reqs and I only really have a year to complete my nursing program because my parents are putting up the house for sale soon and planning on moving to PA. Anyways this is not why I am posting this article.
I ended off my semester with a B in anatomy and physiology part two. With my school there is no such thing are C+, C-, B-, B+, A-, A+, etc. You either get a D, C, B, or A. 70-79.4 is a C, 79.5-89.4 is a B and 89.5-100 is an A. For both A&P one and two I ended up achieving both a B. More specifically I achieved a 87 in A&P 1 and a 88.3 in A&P 2. I am a bit upset for not getting an A in either one of these because I understand how important these classes are for getting into the nursing program along side the GPA. For the Lab portion I achieved a B in A&P 1 and then I achieved a A in lab for A&P2.
My overall GPA for all my Pre-reqs out together ended up getting a 3.3. Personally this is not what I was hoping and I feel like I am already failing honestly because from what I heard and understand the Pre-reqs are extremely easy compared to the nursing programs
The only requirement left that I am missing before I can officially apply for the nursing program is to take the TEAS exam. Im signed up for this exam on 8/02/2018.
The reason for me posting this thread is due to my question regarding my grades. Do you believe a B in both science courses will be enough to get into the Nursing program or do you believe I should just take these classes over? I also do understand that no one here can predict that and it mainly comes down to luck of the draw. I am just nervous and a bit paranoid that if I can only achieve a B in the pre-req science courses than I will do horrible in nursing school.
Some of you may be wondering too why I have not mentioned microbiology. My school actually does not require this course until we get accepted into the program.
I think the reason why I am also a bit nervous and paranoid is because my friend who got into nursing school before me and got high A's in all his pre-reqs messages me all the time telling me how he is barley passing nursing school with high 70's.
I am sorry for the long post and I appreciate anyone who has read this and will take the time to reply to my post.
