As someone who does admissions for a RN program, we’ve caught several applicants trying to pull this over just to find a RN or LPN course or reference to transcript from program previously. They get denied outright, and that follows them if they apply again. we have actually also dismissed someone who we found out about their dismissal from a previous program. They had 40k invested and dismissed without chance for appeal on academic dishonesty. They tried suing and lost. Another 10k likely lost for lawyers. Let alone the ethics behind this being wrong, this advice is flat out poor in terms of setting yourself up for success in the future. Agreed. Don’t lie on your applications. I transferred multiple times with my first degree and failed an entire semester at one school due to depression-induced “unofficial withdrawal” (basically I stopped showing up but was still enrolled so failed everything). Everywhere I’ve applied since wants all transcripts and they get my semester of Fs from that one school along with the performance I’m more proud of. I would take some time to care for yourself and your family before reapplying. If you jump back in before you’re ready to give it the attention it needs and are unsuccessful again, the failures will start to build up in to more of a pattern and it will be harder to find a school willing to give you another shot, not to mention the costs to you. When you reapply, I would include a personal statement explaining what happened, how you have worked to be in a place where you can be successful now. I think it’s up to you how much detail you want to include beyond it being a family emergency that caused a lot of trauma to you and your family.
