I'm a student at Emory who originally intended to do their Nursing program after two years, but instead decided to go for an ECON degree with the intention of working at the Fed.
Well now, as a rising Senior, I'm pretty darn sure I don't want to do Economics after graduation or go to grad school for it. I was thinking that perhaps I could take an ABSN which would be perfect for me. To that end last semester I took A&P I and II, I've also taken statistics as well as Chem I & II,
The issue lies in that I don't think I can take all
the prerequisites for an ABSN before graduation, in part because Emory doesn't offer them all (even ones it requires for its own ABSN
). Also, and the bigger problem, is that I have 3.27 GPA which I understand could make it impossible for me to achieve entrance to one of these programs.
I've tried talking to people at my school about this but they don't seem to understand or want to understand the path I'm trying to take. Really, I'm just hoping one of you has seen a student in my situation and know what I should be aiming for.
Also, do I need to start applying to other Universities now so that I can apply to their nursing programs
in the Spring? Can I apply without all prereqs completed, as I might have to take them individually at other schools that have the?
If I am too anemic a student to apply to ABSN's, then are there two year programs that I could apply to?
Thank you in advance for any wisdom you can share, I truly appreciate it!
