  6. Should I take Microbiology this summer? Or A&P II?

    Im glad to see you are so excited. Well really you should just take A&P II on the summer since it does build on the knowledge you acquired in A&P I. Plenty of people have taken A&P II over the summer and have gotten As. If you work hard y...
  7. PLEASE HELP i cant get into nursing school

    I agree with some of the other posters on here. You need at least a 3.5 minimum thats how competitive it is. So many people are wanting to get into nursing. Schools will say their minimum GPA to apply to their program is a 2.75 or 3.0, but in reality...

  13. Midlands Tech Students who have been waitlisted

    They are very vague when it comes to sooner start dates. Bottom line is you might get bumped up a semester, but thats still a long time to wait. See if you can get in some where else sooner.
  14. Thinking of quitting nursing program...

    Quit ASAP. No need to continue doing something you dont even have a passion for. Go after something you want to do in life. Its YOUR life and YOU CONTROL YOUR LIFE. Just simply tell your parents you dont have any desire to be a nurse. Tell them what...
