    Career Change - Need advice please!

    Hello! I've been lurking for months and have finally decided to post. There are so many smart people here, I just know some of you will be able to help. I live in Miami, mid-30's, bilingual, single, no kids and my dream is to become a nurse. Received a BA in Psych back in 2001. Took A&P 1 and lab last semester and got A's by studying my butt off. Studying wasn't my forte when I was younger so my BA GPA is low... embarrassing low. Luckily, my program GPA is very good. The problem is I work full-time in a corporate setting and fully support myself. There is no way I can just leave my job to start a full-time nursing program. Miami Dade College has a part-time option, but have read on this board that they look at your overall GPA. If they count my BA GPA - I'm screwed. Has anyone here been in my situation? Did you get into the MDC part-time program and did they look at your overall or program gpa? Are there schools other than MDC who offer a part-time option? Thanks for reading and I would appreciate your help greatly. BTW, I've searched everywhere on-line for part-time programs in the S. Florida area and got nothing.
