I am on the verge of a panic attack. I graduated last year with a BA in Psychology... Had I have known I would ever consider nursing and realize the value and unparalleled room for career options, I would have taken my sciences, etc. A LOT more seriously...I have a cumulative GPA of 2.82. I have been studying for the GRE just to realize that I don't think it will help me that much...and certainly won't replace a competitive GPA. I see threads on here about potential options for those in my shoes--I am already 25 though, I have juggled school and work and the military for years. I knew I would need to go on to get my masters degree, but as it stands I am far from eligible for a BSN - MSN program, let alone most BSN programs. I want to have the opportunity to be in a position to earn my MSN before I am 30. I would not work at all while I am in an accelerated program. I have saved enough to this point that this is possible, but to have to take many additional courses before even getting into a program, or wasting money applying to schools that won't even give me the time of day, would be extremely counterproductive to my end goal, ultimately. Are there any schools out there that would look at my extensive patient-care volunteer experience, GRE scores, professional resume, essay/explanation letter, interview me, etc. in lieu of a GPA below par? I am willing to go ANYWHERE in the country!!!
