You could contact Umass Boston to inquire about the gpa of their admitted class for the past year to see how competitive you would be if you apply.
If you are doing well in your science coursese (A&P) etc, you could also ask if they look at your science gpa more than your overall cumulative. Don't be afraid to ask questions of Admissions people at UMass
Curry College also has an acclerated BSN program (16 months)--and their deadline is in March 2008 for the Jan. 2009 entering class.
I got my bachelors in Sociology in 2002 and then got and then completed an M.Ed. program even though I KNEW I wanted to be a nurse. I was too impatient to go through and take the pre-req courses like A&P, chem, microbio, but I wish I had done that rather than complete an M.Ed. and then still want to get into nursing! (My undergraduate GPA was 3.48 and my grad GPA was 3.89)
I was accepted for spring 2008 program at LM/Regis nursing program, so I have resigned from my job in education!
