I've got 2 years of acute care experience so now I want to plan to get my NP (DNP preferred) but I'm not sure how to start. My actual nursing school GPA was 2.89 so I look like a terrible student. I'm in progress in studying the GRE's but I do not know how to overcome the GPA issue since my old school is pretty far so I cannot bolster the GPA from there. The only thing I have going for me is I have one person thats a higher up at my old job that is willing to act as a reference for me. Any tips on how to get started? I'm losing my drive at my current job and I want to move to the next step in my career.
