    Looking for advice

    For the sake of brevity and transparency, I'm going to attempt to be quick and blunt. I have been a NICU RN for the past 4.5 years. I have my BSN, my only cert is RNC-NICU. My cumulative GPA is 3.25 due to me acting a fool in the beginning of college. My nursing school GPA is 3.47 and my science GPA is 3.54. (Included just to demonstrate I can put in the work once I put my mind to it). I have found schools that accept NICU experience so that part isn't an issue other than it severely limiting the amount of schools I can apply to (vs me having something like SICU experience). I understand based on my stats alone, I'm not necessarily a competitive applicant. I'm looking for advice on what I can do to improve myself in order to start applying in the next year or two. I'm looking into taking some graduate level patho, pharm, or maybe o-chem. Is there anything else I can do? I'm also willing to change jobs and/or apply anywhere and move if I have to, although there are a couple schools near family that it would be ideal to get into simply because then I wouldn't have to take out much in COL loans. Be blunt, be brutal. I'm open to any and all advice and suggestions. Thanks for reading.
