I Want to apply to Adelphi's nursing program...

Hello, I was a nursing student in queensborough communty college, failed two courses and sent for an appeal, which was denied. I would like to apply to adelphi's nursing program and want to know if they will consider allowing me to enter their program?? (of course after passing the teas exam and have a high gpa).

You have a high GPA after failing two nursing courses?

I don't know Adelphi's specific requirements, but it would be a rare school indeed that would accept you "as is", without requiring you to repeat coursework. During what semester of your nursing program did you fail these courses? Were they two separate courses, and you failed them each once.....or twice? Most schools will allow you to repeat one nursing course (is this what you already did?) but not two.

The most obvious answer, it seems to me, is to call the school's admissions department and ask! After all, it's unlikely anyone here is going to be in your identical situation, and it is only YOUR situation that matters.

Hi thank you for reading my post. I have 2.9 gpa after failing two nursing courses.

The two courses that I had failed were two separate courses, i failed each one once, my school only allows us to repeat a failed course once. I repeated only once and passed but then the next course i failed by two points, i sent for an appeal but it was denied:(

Well, to be perfectly honest, unless Adelphi has rather low standards or a very high enrollment availability for some reason, you aren't likely to gain a spot in their program. 2.9 is most definitely NOT a "high GPA". It's below the minimum for consideration most places. And yes, you do have two failed courses: one course you failed and then repeated for a 'pass'; you then had another 'fail'.

You'll most definitely need to speak with an admissions person there, but as I said, unless they are a VERY forgiving program.....your chances are not good.

Adelphi wouldn't even look at my application after I withdrew from a science class (micro). If they wouldn't take an authorized withdrawal, I doubt they'll consider a failure but call their nursing admissions office

Oh I'm sorry to hear that. I spoke with admissions they said I can apply to their program but I'm not eligible which was ironic to me. I guess they just have high expectations from what you are telling me.

Their expectations are pretty realistic. I don't know many schools that accept re takes at this point- Stony Brook doesn't accept them after the fall 2015 applicants. Nursing schools are competitive. I think LIU Brooklyn's cutoff is a 2.75 and a HESI exam, maybe try them I think you said your GPA is a 2.9? St. Paul's might look at you as well. I know QCC requires a 3.0 and nothing lower than a C for admission but I think you said you just left them, NYU and SBU rejected me with a 3.54
