Hi @RNmoss As mentioned earlier, I got 60/75 on phase 1. I received points for having a bachelors, LVN license, 4.0 in sciences, 3.7 on remaining prereqs, and life experience. I do not have a military background and I don't speak a second language.
I'm not sure what your academic background is. I would confirm with a counselor to see if you are able to retake courses that you got a B or C in to improve the GPA. I've been going to school FOREVER and switched careers so for me personally, I retook my B courses from years ago so that I could replace them with A's, but I had to take them at another school district. For example, I got a C in psych in 2004 from Los Rios, a B in statistics from DVC, and a B in english from Sac State. I retook these courses at Sierra College, an outside school district. It should be easier now that everything is online.
Also with this time, I would try to get an associate's degree because that adds 5 points to the application. You can also try getting a CNA or MA license because that adds an extra 5 points. You can also try to take 4 semesters of a foreign language because that will add another 5 points.
