I've ace'd Anatomy, Physio, Chem, and Micro. Unfortunately only have a few more A's and then B's and 2 C's. I took a one year program as an Assistant in the medical field almost 10 years ago, which gave me a gpa lower than 3.0. Sooo that being said, my cumulative gpa with nursing pre reqs not being all A's (accept for my sciences), plus my 1 year program gpa being lower than 3.0. I feel like i'm out of choices. Plus i got a low score on Teas. However, i do have 2 years of medical field exp. and 2 years of language. I feel it all means nothing. If my grades from 10 years ago are going to be counted in their criteria of accepting me im screwed I was thinking of taking a tutoring class for my 2nd attempt for the teas, see how that goes. Even ASN degrees are wanting high TEAS score (80%). And the local lottery schools i've looked at are only basing the TEAS score from the first attempt . My only way of getting in is if a program looks at my science grades, my medical experience, and 2 years of language and letters of reference. Pending i pass my teas on the 2nd attempt with flying colors. I heard of a teas class that charges $1000 to help one pass above 79% but it's not a guarantee. I live in California which makes it all the worse of getting in. I'm willing to relocate, however, i haven't found any programs that will not want my transcripts from 8 years ago.. the admission office as for ALL transcripts. I don't understand why old grades matter. Feeling so defeated. My spouse and 5 year old have been so patient as i did homework all these years (4) and now it feels like it was all for nothing.
Anybody know any colleges that focuse essays, or/& med. exp, and good science grades. Iven if they just look at pre reqs and NOT entire GPA from 8 yrs back. I'm even willing to retake TEAS test:blink:
