How long is the program?
To me, it seems ridiculous to dismiss someone when they are so close to the finish, but I get that these nursing schools need graduates who are likely to pass the NCLEX (I.e. the better the NCLEX pass rate, the better the school's rep, the more suc..."students" likely to attend, the more money they make, and so forth).
Was your program an ASN program? I have read that they are even harder than BSN programs (I.e. the skills portion). What exam/subject caused you to missed the mark by less than a point?
If you do need to apply to other nursing schools, be open to an LPN program. From there, you could apply for an LPN to RN program. BUT, do look into @NewRN'16 's suggestion before trying this route.
SIDE NOTE: You should ask a moderator to remove the name of your school from your first post. With the school's name and the other information about you, someone you know in real life could figure out who you are here.
