science course retakes

  1. Can anybody tell me if it looks bad on your nursing application if you retake your science classes. I retook A&P2 and micro. I did pass them the first time but with B's and C's. I retook them and I'm proved my grades to A's and B's. I really needed them for the points. I made a 91 on the HESI A2. so I'm not worried about that. I'm just worried about how bad it looks that I couldn't get A's and B's the first time around. Also I have several drops from where I was unsure of what I wanted to major in. Any advice please.

    there are no strict guidelines that every nursing department has to follow when choosing applicants so, it's tough to answer your question. get in touch with a counselor and find out what specific rule your school goes by, in regards to course retakes.

    to give you some good vibes, my school allows 1 retake for science courses without any penalty. after that 1 retake, points are deducted for each retake thereafter.


    good luck!

    thanks so much....I will def. ask. I do know we can retake them up to three times but no more. Also I doesn't say anywhere that they deduct points so all I can do is sit back and pray these next 2weeks go by fast!!! thank you again
