First and most important you need to determine why you performed poorly in the classes you took. If you don't already know, learn how you comprehend material and where your weaknesses are so you can correct them. If you have substantial credits towards a ba/bs 90+ I would continue. You might want to lower your course load in the beginning to get yourself on the right track and gain your confidence back.
I agree. It's crucial that you figure out why you have performed poorly in school (and fix that) before you invest more time and money on more courses that may not improve your GPA and overall situation.
However ... I would strong caution you to look closely at your finances before you complete your non-nursing degree.
There are too many people out there (many on this forum), who have racked up thousands of dollars of debt in student loans "finishing up" degrees that they are not now using in their careers. Those debts can be crushing later on in life. Also -- and this is key
-- once you get a bachelor's degree, you become ineligible for certain types of financial aid. If you get a non-nursing BS now and then want to go to nursing school later, you will not be eligible for some of the financial assistance that you may need.
Unless you have tons of money and it doesn't matter ... investigate the financial aid situation that you will be in for your nursing education before you get a another degree. If you read some of the threads about financial aid on this board, you will see many posts that say things like ... "... and I don't qualify for the subsidized loans etc. because I already have another degree."
