I am a university student who is about to graduate with a bachelors degree in a liberal arts field. A few years ago I started taking a few nursing pre-reqs. I got a "B" in my A&P I class at a community college, so I decided to take a 300 level A&P at the university I attend. Long story short, I got a lower grade taking it the second time! There are a few different nursing programs that I am wanting to apply to, and here's the problem... one program recomends we re-take courses in which we recieved a grade less than an "A" (and does not accept any grade lower than a "B" in the pre-reqs), while another program warns applicants that it looks unfavorably at course retakes. I also have a few "W" grades and a "D" in a chemistry course where I only took the first and last exams.... Yes, I have been flaky in the past.
What should I do? Should I forge ahead and retake the classes I screwed up? I feel like I have lost my chance to try to get in to nursing school because I wasn't really sure of what I wanted to do career-wise.
Any adivce or words of encouragement are appreciated!
