Im looking for a nusing school to apply in New York or New Jersey never realizing how competitive it is!! Im looking for a nursing program in Assoc. for now. took some of the require classes for the program but my grades werent so hot, ive repeated A & P I 3 times due to some personal issues not realizing how important it is just to get in the program (obviously my school advisor did not help) and most school will not accept. Im taking my last class in A & P II and im doing fairly well in this class my GPA is 2.83 any suggested as to what should i do, ive done lots of research and im so stressed out, i really want to become a nurse and im feeling rejected by the school system now. i feel these school can be very unfare to us students ive thought about LPN straight into BS for nursing but what if then i still get rejected?
PS. im also willing to take my Pre nursing classes over, and not pass them over to the school for eval, but is that possible?

Hi, Does anyone feel that all the hard work that they did in their pre-reqs will not be worth anything if they don't get accepted?
ABSOLUTELY, those exact thoughts have crossed my mind....I am 47, I don't have all the time in the world left and for once would like to have a great career and make decent money. The only thing I may get out of my science classes is that doctors and nurses can't fool me easily if I or my beloved family members have health issues.... one already tried, blaming me for being dehydrated when she couldn't get any blood from me. She did a bad stick job and tried to blame me....I told her I am in A&P and want to be a nurse, she didn't say much after that:roll
If I don't get into nursing school I will go back into elementary teaching (my original plan). I could have higher quality discussions with the kids about brains, guts etc...all the stuff that little kids like to talk about LOL
I absolutely love kids.
I hope that we all survive the nursing endeavor and don't lose our humor and zest for life over it.
Something good has to come out of all our efforts. I wish you the best of luck and I am concerned that you are not getting sleep. I have no answers for you and can only lend a shoulder to cry on....
Hang in there!!!!!
