    well, i graduated from a very respected college in the state, and well, i guess if you fail. Just keep on studying, maybe transfer to another college which has the same curriculum. Just don't shift courses, it'll just make your nursing subjects a complete waste of money and effort.

    umm i would call the adviser b/c its varies by case. i really don't wanna tell u the wrong advice especially since ur in another state. but, i got credit for 1st and partial 2nd semester. i tested out medsurg and mental and started at 3rd semester,where i left off. it may sound easy cause i worked fast and got in all my paperwork quickly, but it wasn't a smooth process. have u tried places in ur area 1st?
    how difficult was it to test out of any course you are asking to be accepted for transfer credit? how would you rate the level of difficulty? were you offered time to study before taking those exams? how exactly did you do it?

    i touchbased the advisor and this is what the advisor told me in return:

    i was forwarded your e-mail about transfer. every student is taken on an individual basis regarding transfer credit, would need to look at your transcript. however transfers are accepted on a space available basis, you would need all our pre-requisites as well as pass the hesi entrance exam. in addition the school does not automatically accept grades for previous courses passed, you must test out of any course you are asking to be accepted for transfer credit.

    I just wanted to add my experience since im in a similar situation. I failed out of 3rd semester OB & peds due to clinical. I was denied my appeal but got into another school even though its in a small town at least its a BSN program. I took credit by exam for adult med surg and psych..everything else transfered (foundations, patho, nurs research, pharmacology)..now i get to start 3rd semester at a different school. I thank god every day 4 this because I did receive alot of "No, u can't transfer if you failed out of one program" from counselors, but I did get two schools willing to accept me. The moral of the story is YES u can get into another program and YES ur credits can transfer if u find the right school..I hope the OP & every1 else going through this got into another program!!
    Besides TAMIU, please list out the other one of the two schools that is willing to accept you.

    Hello. I'm about 4 years too late to respond to this but your situation is what exactly happened to me but except i failed on the third semester not the last semester (which would be the fourth). My program also only have one chance to repeat and I appealed as well and got denied. Instead of giving you advice since I am going through the same situation now, I wanted to know how did you deal with it and where did you go from there... Right now I'm still lost....Thanks
