Quote from RS0302
I just found out I recieved a C for this term in a&p. I'm a little dissapointed, but all I need for the RN program at my school is a C. I'm just worried that a C is going to lower my chances at getting into the program. I know all schools and programs are different, but do alot of people get into programs with a C in the course? I recieved A's and B's on my other pre-reqs but I'm sure a&p is the most important. Maybe I'm just making a big deal out of nothing...I just really want to get into the RN program here.
My school uses a point system. You basically get a point for every course you took at that school (regardelss of the grade you earned as long as it was passing), points on your score (percentile) on the NLN pre-entrance exam, current GPA, high school class rank and GPA, work experience, volunteer work for your community, letters of recommendation, and lastly personal essay.
The more points you earn the better chances of getting in. It is very competitive and there are only 49 spots available so you can just imagine
I also believe that you should go talk to your guidance couselor/advisor and ask them to tell you exactly where you stand. Based on their response you can take it from there and see where you need improvement.
Do not dispair and do not give up. Things will turn out for the better
