Very Scared

  1. Hi. I am doing a career switch to nursing and am vey scared. I have a BS in another degree and will be applying to 3 schools in my state that have MSN programs for people w/o RNs and nursing degrees. I don't know what I am up against. I need to take 6 prereqs before applying. I have a lot of the prereqs completed already from my original BS but there are problems. The prereqs are the basics-anatomy, psych, sociology.... But some of these classes I took 5 years ago when I was a freshman in college and I didn't do great in them. I passed them but didn't pass them with flying colors. Luckily I exceled at the science classes but got a C and a couple B's in the liberal arts stuff. My undergrad GPA was a 3.76 but I am afraid that these couple prereqs will work against me. Any advice?

    I suggest that you research the preregs and then take no more than 2 "hard ones" and then add a "easy one".
    This way you will not begin to feel so overwelmed by the amount of work that is involved. You might also want to check and see if one the preregs is offered during a mini-mester. I have found that the mini-mesters are a little easier.
    Hope this helps you out and welcome to the Nursing Profession.
