RN to BSN Programs that are more lenient for Students with Undergraduate past

Currently completing an ADN program at my local Community College in Pennsylvania. I previously attended a University for 5 years in a completely different major, but dropped out because I wasn't happy in the field I chose (which my grades reflected 😅). Needless to say, my GPA from my previous University was around a 2.6, but now as I am in Nursing 2 at my Community College, with 2 more Nursing Classes and 50 some credits done, I have a 3.5 GPA. I really believe changing my major, completing a Phlebotomy Certificate and finding my passion for Nursing helped me to succeed at my current school.

With that being said, I'm curious if anyone - maybe with a similar story - had issues getting accepted to an RN to BSN program after graduation. Some possibilities in PA are Penn State World Campus, La Salle & Cal U of PA Online. I will definitely look at other state options, but would love some advice/experience. 🤓

Update: I found that my community college partners with Drexel University, which allows a discounted tuition. Definitely going to look into going to their online program!
