    hi all! i am taking nursing pre reqs here in new olreans...i had applied to nursing school here and was waiting to hear back from them. unfortunately, i have to make a move to DC this summer and want to continue with my education. I dont know anything about any programs in DC and my counselor at school wasnt much help. i do not have a bachelors degree and hope to get my BSN through a 4 year university in DC. the only thing i do know (or have been told) is that UDC does not have a good program at all. does anyone know where i should look? any leads or advice?

    how is everyone...posted this in the thread above but wasnt sure where the most appropriate place was...figured i give this thread a try...
    i just had a quick question. have been asking around and cant seem to find a good answer. heres my situation...i started my college career at loyola where i was an international business major. it wasnt for me to say the least. I had a horrible gpa (1.9) after 2 years. I decided to take a year off to decide what i really wanted to do. I decided to take my nursing pre reqs...and loved it. managed to get a 4.0 in my two semesters. my goal is to apply/attend to LSU SON but im sure my gpa from Loyola and from DCC (2.6) will stop me from getting in even if i have As in all of my pre reqs (have a 4.0 from DCC). my two transcripts are polar opposites. I am really excited about going into this field and hate that my GPA from Loyola in an unrelated field will stop me from pursuing my BSN. does anyone know how much weight LSU puts on your GPA outside of your pre reqs? i know their minimum GPA for admission is a 2.8...does anyone who has applied/been admitted to LSU SON have any advice. ive been going a little crazy thinking about it and the people ive spoken with in the admissions has just given me the runaround...

    will they consider my gpa from dcc where i took my pre reqs and loyola seperate? or will it be considered as one entire gpa?
    any advice would be appreciated...

    hi everyone. im new to the site and hope im posting this in the right place. i have just moved back to new orleans to start my pre nursing courses at uno. i have already had two years in college at loyola (in the business school) but my gpa wasnt the best. i was hoping to be able to get a fresh start and do very well this next semester

    my ultimate goal is to get my BSN from lsuhsc here in new orleans. i am afraid that, even if i do well with my pre nursing courses at uno that my GPA from loyola will lessen my chances of getting into the program at lsuhsc. does anyone have any advice? acceptance rate? things of that sort...

    any general advice would help. as i said, i am just starting this process and any information from yall would be helpful
