I am really trying to decide whether between 2 options. Of course everyone knows that with nursing schools each differ slightly with regards to their pre-reqs.
Here' my situation (keep in mind I have a previous bachelor's degree in another discipline): there are several nursing schools that I'm considering with 2 that are at the top of my list.
The first offers an asn program (private) which is about $20,000 I'm taking the pre-req's needed to get into their program - which I'm almost certain I'll attain good enough grades to get into their program (hopefully
The 2nd school is a state university in which you get an accelerated bsn (for those with bachelor's in another discipline). The total program is about $10,000 which is significantly less than the other - however 2 of their pre-reqs: Chemistry and Statistics are not my best subjects. I took statistics previously with my current bachelors and received a D+ mostly because I including the rest of the class couldn't understand what the professor was saying. - I know I'll have to repeat statistics WHICH I ABSOLUTELY HATE!!! And then there's the dreadful CHEMISTRY - WHICH I HATE TO THE 3RD POWER:angryfire!!!
What would you do? Suggest? Would you take the asn route (MORE PRICEY$$$) knowing you'll have a better chance getting in their program with pre-reqs that are easier? Or would you go for the accelerated bsn (WAY CHEAPER) and risk the chance of not doing well enough in chem. and stat. (The ABSN program says that you have to get atleast a C in their pre-reqs - but we all know that C usually isn't even good enough to be considered)
Anyone can give some encouragement or suggestions? Also, anyone with a similar experience please share???
All comments are appreciated.
