Hello everyone, it's been a tough couple months. I am extremely lost in my life right now... I want to find a nursing program but I do not know where to go. I was previously in a CUNY nursing program before but I due to unfortunate events; I was not able to continue. Since I am barred from most CUNY programs, I tried to apply to NYU but was unsuccessful there. Here are my stats:
My previously schools grades were: 2.278GPA
My General Pre-reqs for Nursing: 3.74GPA
Dev. Psych: A
I'm not sure where to go from here. I know my cumulative will not meet the criteria for many of the other schools. I tried to apply to NYU since it did not state a cumulative in their eligibility but was rejected. I do not know where I can do to increases my probability for the next application wave. I was thinking of volunteering or possibly working in the healthcare field for more experience but I am not sure if that is what it'll take to push my profile forward.
I am lost. I will take any advice.
I know some people will ask.
With those grades and with you failing out of nursing. Is this what you really want to do? -- Yes it is.
What happened in your first attempt? -- Personally from my viewpoint, I was wrongfully punished at the end of the semester in which I was threatened with a 0 on my final. Which meant I'd be kicked out of the program + barred from CUNY. When that wave passed; they never did anything and I had to take my final with the pressure of receiving a 0 on it. I missed passing my semester by 0.1. I actually failed out due to Psych Nursing, my program makes us take Psych + Medsurg, I was doing fine in Medsurg but my Prof. for psych was atrocious. Even so, it is still my responsibility to flex to the professor so I will take this L.
Why is your cumulative so low? -- Young, dumb, no direction. etc. Trying to right the wrongs now.
Do you have any professional experience in the health field? -- No, other than my clinical and volunteer experiences. I was thinking about finding a job and volunteering again to try and see if it'll increase my chances but I am unsure if it will even help. Not sure what to do..
