Repeated classes. Would I be able to apply into the nursing program?

by Veronica P Veronica P (New) New Student Pre-Student

I currently go to Sacramento State for school and have repeated 5 courses within my pre-reqs and co-reqs. One of them I have withdrawn from, so it should not be on record. So far as the school/ nursing program sees, it's 4. The pre-reqs I had to retake was A&P I, stats, psych, nutrition, and english as I had personal things going on. I didn't fail but received D's in them. Now that I have taken them again, I received A's the second attempt. The only one left to retake is nutrition along with microbio next semester. I know all nursing programs are different as to what they require, especially their point system. Also, I am fully aware that this may set me back and deem me ineligible, as to which I am considering majoring in health science and going through accelerated nursing programs. Please let me know what you all think. As I know it is up to me what to do, I would still love feedback. Thanks.

The program I taught in focused on overall GPA, not necessarily repeating courses.  Also, they looked at other factors for overall decision.

You should check with the programs you are applying too.  My college only allows a maximum of 2 repeated courses. I did have to retake stat because I got a c+ and the minimum grades for my college was B- other than this I had to make sure I passed all the rest of my course..
