No I have not contacted USF but I know they will not take me. They are rejecting students with 3.7 GPA and are super selective. Like I said I flunked out my 1st year in community college and did not go to class hung out with my GF instead typical 17-18yr old, living for the moment stuff. I do show remarkable improvement when I actually started paying for school on my own and got a little older but I did have a few withdraws in Stats II and Algebra. There’s just no way USF will take me from what I read on the boards. I also cant find anything about class time's really need a class that starts after 5pm and weekends.
I know its going to be a longer haul but I think as far as working and moving towards a RN my best option might be to go to P-Tec or Manatee Tech for LPN about 1 year and then to LPN to RN bridge program. I was reading the strings on Excelsior College good and bad.
Hopefully I can work as an HR Generalist / Recruiter while doing the LPN and decide if I want to keep working in HR or LPN while I finish up my RN bridge depending on where the economy is at in 1 year. I can always go for a MSN online option and skip the BSN altogether. I just don’t see the point of two B.S. Degrees. Not to mention Ptec has a LPN online program starting at 5pm with sat clinic, and Manatee has a program that start at 6pm two days a week and both are 1 year and about 5-6k for LPN.
All I know is if I could do it all over again I would have went the nursing route from the start and not screwed around the 1st few years. However I am 38 now so was not thinking like this 20 yrs ago, and my friends would have laughed at me if I said I wanted to be a nurse.
