Well my daughter is ending up repeating Anatomy for this Fall 2015. For Spring 2015, We had applied to CSUCI at Goleta, LB(not yet heard back but not counting), and CSU STAN, but she is put on alternate unfortunately.
She is working 20 hour part-time right now and taking 2 classes: Anatomy and Public Speaking(other CSUs need this class, except CSULB will take small group discussion(waste of time for her)).
During spring 15 while waiting, she will work (more) to pay some expenses(we pay for her apt.), and/ or take some classes but not sure what yet. She mentioned about volunteering also but we are not sure how much that would help her chances as timing is kind late I guess. We might look into taking nursing classes if possible but she has to make sure to get good grades or GPA will suffer. I guess we will play it safe and be very smart on spending time and money on something that should be beneficial in the long run.
I also have another kid who will start CSU this Fall 2015. Besides CSUs (due to competition), as a backup plan, for her I am also looking at UNLV and NSC 2-year BSN programs which look pretty good due to shorter time. Cheers.
