    Hi, I can’t private message you as I haven’t posted enough to send messages yet. I was wondering if you would be able to spare a little time to give me some advice about midwifery.I have seen your helpful posts over the years and think you might be able to give me some honest, straightforward advice and answer a few questions I have. Thanks, Claire

    Rutgers DNP/FNP spring 2019

    For those who were accepted where did you get your BSN? Im in an ADN program at the moment and wondering if an online 1 year BSN will be good enough. It will take me an extra year or two to get my BSN from Rutgers. TIA

    Failed TWO science pre reqs.. Any hope?

    I agree that you should definitely pursue getting those Ws. I got a late w (years after the fact) with very little documentation. As others have said it wasn't up to the professors but a specific department that deals with this. I went through our registration department. Given all your documentation I think there's a very strong chance you can change your Fs to Ws.

    Pregnant & in college?

    Can I ask why you are high risk? I think you will probably be fine with both classes but obviously you know yourself best. I think it would be nice to have something to keep you busy whilst you wait out those early weeks waiting for the baby to start moving and to start showing etc. (I always find the early weeks drag on the longest :) ). A&P is very doable as long as you give yourself time to learn it all.

    Steps to becoming a R.N

    Hi. Welcome to the US. I'm from Birmingham originally and moved to the US 15 years ago (NJ). I completely understand how confusing it can all be. I'm not sure about the answer to your question as I'm going for an associates degree which I start after the pre-requisites are done. My advice is to talk to someone in admissions at the schools you are interested in. They are usually really helpful and that's the main way I figured everything out. Also you might need to get your high school results converted into American. I'm assuming you have A-levels? If that's the highest education you have there are companies that can work out the equivalent of your A-levels to the American system so that you can get in. The most respected one is WES. I'm not sure what the admissions requirements are for a 4 year uni here so not sure if this is something you will definitely need to do or not.
  6. You get points for the 4 sciences: A=30 B=20 C=10 I'm not sure about +'s and -'s Then the 2 English classes have half the value A=15 etc You also need a gpa of at least 2.5 but they only look at the points for the 4 sciences and 2 English. They add up all the points and rank the students high to low and they go down the list offering people a place until they are filled up. Hope that helps. Oh and if you have a previous degree they will also give points for that
