My name is Ashley, I'm currently a 23 year old pre-nursing student, getting my pre-requisites at my local community college. I'm driven to become a nurse because I want to help people, specifically mothers of loss though I'm aware that's not where fate may lead me after all - that is my goal right now. After losing my first born due to a placental abruption and seeing how compassionate my nursing team was, it has been my goal and dream to get out there and hopefully help other mothers cope with this awful loss. I am now a mother to a beautiful 2 year old girl and three pittie fur babies - Diablo, Sadie, and Otis.

    Please help my grades are killing me!!

    @NuguyNurse2b Yeah, I'm definitely seeing now that even ADN programs are competitive and wherever they end up accepting me, I will go. I just have to keep my fingers crossed that it's a decent one that will actually prepare me for the field.

    Pre-req question!

    Thanks for the input, everyone! After speaking with an advisor (and taking a breather to think clearly and not in desperate mode), taking both courses together wouldn't be smart and, of course, not possible. I have found a reputable, high-NCLEX-pass-rate school that doesn't require those two pre-reqs (and I have taken all of the others they require!) to at least obtain an ADN, so I think that may be my only option at this point. Fingers crossed that I get accepted!

    Any hope? RSU Question!

    So today I had to sort of face the fact that I wouldn't be able to attend Nursing school in the Fall of 2016 due to missed deadlines and courses that wouldn't be complete in time, however, as I am scouring for a glimmer of hope, I've come across something (I think). I looked into RSU's nursing program and literally 50% of the courses within their curriculum to obtain an ADN I've already completed! Hypothetically speaking, I could complete the program within two semesters (right?!). Here's the situation: In their first semester curriculum, the courses called for include Nursing Concepts, Foundations of Nursing Practice, an Elective, and Pharmacology - well - I've already completed pharmacology and the elective! So that is two courses out of the way (and I've already called to see if they would transfer and they do). Then, for the second semester curriculum plan, they have Therapeutic Interventions I, Nutrition, and Microbiology. I've already taken Nutrition. Third semester - Therapeutic Interventions II, Intro to Psych, and Comp II. Psych and Comp II are already completed so that leaves only one course for that semester. Final Semester - Transition to Nursing, Nursing in a Complex Environment, History Elective, and Am Fed Govt. History Elective and Am Fed Govt. are already completed. Would they allow me to just combine the courses I haven't taken? I don't see how it would make sense for me to retake courses.

    Pre-req question!

    I looked to see if I could do that and no luck. Chemistry is only offered as a full 16 week course. BUMMER! I'm going to head to advisement tomorrow and see what they can tell me. If I can't, I suppose I'll have to deal with the fact that I won't be going to nursing school for another two years.

    Looking for some encouragement and advice!

    I've really considered my community college's ADN program, however, I've been here for nearly three years! I'm so close to being done with my pre requisites that I figured going another two years for my ADN would be pointless if I can spend the same amount of time getting my BSN. I probably have to face the music and just do an ADN. I really wish I had known about the ADN program at my school sooner. I literally had no idea it existed until last year. :/ Ah well.

    Please help my grades are killing me!!

    I'm freaking out about my grades as well, though my situation is slightly different. I have B's in Anatomy and Bio but I still need to take Microbio, Physiology, and Chemistry. My GPA for my Pre-reqs are 2.8! By the end of this semester I should have a 3.0. I know some schools only look at your most recent grades, and not the past marks. Others, however, like the school I'm DYING to get into look at ALL of your grades cumulatively, which sucks for me. I'm going to apply to all of the nursing schools in my area and pick the best one. :/

    Pre-req question!

    So I'm in a bind. I wanted to apply for Nursing school this upcoming spring, however, my physiology and microbiology are going to have to be completed during the Summer of 2016 because I need College Alg to take Chemistry and I need Chemistry to take Micro and Phys. Has your school ever let you take two courses (that need to be completed separately) concurrently? If I could take College Algebra and Chemistry in the same semester, I'll be good to go and can apply in the Spring.

    Looking for some encouragement and advice!

    A move would be interesting but difficult with a little one and spouse with ESRD. Thank you for your thoughts! Maybe one of my local schools will "see something" and accept me. I'm certainly hitting these last few semesters hard for the best chances. :)
  9. Hi all! I'm closing in on my student career with TCC, I have a few pre requisites to complete and then I plan on applying for nursing college! However, I'm not very confident in my chances of being accepted, well, anywhere. My GPA is barely going to reach a 3.0 by the end of this fall, given I earn all A's. These past three years have been extremely rough, financially and emotionally (and I am by no means someone who loves to give excuses for anything), so I have had some bad marks and have needed to retake classes to get academic forgiveness. I will also be completing my last pre requisites in the spring and summer of 2016. Does this mean I will have to wait until the Fall of 2017 to go to nursing school? I see where application deadlines are normally in the spring, so my last two sciences won't be completed at that time. Do they let you apply while still completing a few courses? If I earn all A's from here on out, I'm assuming my GPA will be over 3.0, but I know in reality, nursing prospects are going in with HIGH GPAs. Also, will they take your letter explaining why your academic career was rough into consideration? I know I'm capable of a 4.0 if not a GPA in the high 3's, but due to some circumstances, I fell short. However, becoming a nurse is a serious, serious DREAM and passion of mine. I want to do this so badly but I feel a bit hopeless. Has anyone ever gotten accepted with a gpa in the low 3's? Thanks!!

    Any info on Langston Nursing 2016

    Following! I plan on applying then, as well, but my GPA is horrid (okay, not horrid, but not great at all), I'll barely have a 3.0 by the end of this fall semester and hopefully it will be much higher by the end of the Summer 2016 semester. I haven't completed all of my sciences yet except for A&P which I got a B in. Maybe if I complete the remaining sciences with A's or B's I'll at least be a contender?! Haha. And then Other courses I've had to retake so I'm not sure if Langston honors academic forgiveness or not.
