    Getting into NP school?!

    Okay, So, I have a big problem. I am in my first semester of BSN school, and I have a feeling I'm going to get a C in fundamentals and Bs in both Health Assessment & Therapeutic communication. Here's what happened, I was very sick the first several weeks of school, I was just diagnosed with anemia and Vitamin D deficiency. Sure enough, after I started supplementing, I felt way better, and I got an 85 on my last test. I bombed my HESI with a 71.48. I'm going to find out if I can retake fundamentals, but I was wondering how this might jeopardize my chances of getting into NP school. This is really what I want to do with my life, my total GPA before nursing school with like 111 hrs was a 3.945, and I am wondering how bad a C will look to graduate school. Also, I have no prior experience with research or leadership, how exactly can I get experience in that arena. I haven't held a job in the medical field or any job for that matter, will that also look terrible on my resume for graduate school?
