I also spoke to an UAC adviser .... She also went on a huge rant about being blamed for low returns for sophomore year. I felt bad for her but its the college of nursing that is causing all of this. Freshman orientation makes you so hopeful about receiving a BSN in 4 years but they never speak about the low chances of being accepted.
I was thinking about studying Health Education in the mean time. The adviser suggested Psych because I have taken 3 psych classes and received an A in all three because they were super easy!
I agree that GCU is a great school! The atmosphere is amazing and different than CNM/UNM. Plus who doesn't want to wear purple scrubs
(just kidding!). The staff there are so helpful. I was also able to talk with some of the current nursing students and they stated that they loved the school. The price tag is heavy but I feel the program is worth it.
I was planning on taking Patho 1 this summer and I ended up dropping it a day before class. I didn't hear great things about the professor. The class seemed way to short (June 2- July 29) for me to really get a good understanding.
Well thank you much for helping me out and listening to my rambling. Its nice to talk to people who are going through what I'm going to through.
I wish you luck with getting into nursing school! Maybe we will both get into GCU next spring (fingers crossed)! Don't ever loose your hope and drive to become a nurse. We WILL be accepted when the time is right!
