So, I have been trucking along taking my pre-req's, I got my CNA between semesters and have landed a job in a hospital. I took the TEAS test and got in to two LPN programs but decided not to accept and just go for my RN. Now, I am an "older" student and my GPA isn't the greatest. My recent stuff is all A's and B's but I have some C's and a couple of D's and one F that I never retook...all very old. So, because of this I am petrified that I won't get into a decent school. I am applying for Penn Valley and St. Luke's for January. Then if that doesn't work I can apply for Graceland but all of these are very competitive and hard to get into with a low GPA like mine. So, do I just go to a profit school such at National American University or Concorde? Will it hurt me in trying to get an RN job? I am hoping to just stay at the hospital I am at and bridge to my BSN since that is what they want. Any thoughts? I just want this so bad and hate that my past of being young and crazy is going to prevent me from getting it. I am not even the same student I was 20 years ago.Was I stupid to not go into an LPN program?
