Hi guys, Just got referred to this nursing forum so let me know if I should refer my question elsewhere.I graduated in '13 with degrees in Spanish and International Studies from LSU, but finished all my pre-requisites for the LSUHSC BSN nursing program. When I was a freshman, I took most of my pre-reqs as a kinesiology major. Unfortunately I came in with some courses already with a passing grade, and during my freshman year I made some B's in biology and bio lab, sociology, and art. I ended with a 3.64 in prereqs (3.58 overall GPA), and just finished statistics this summer with an A, so I'm hoping they take into consideration I became a MUCH better student as my college years went on. After a year off doing my own thing living abroad and teaching english, I have come back home and after volunteering at a hospital decided after all to go back to school for nursing. It is currently July, and I am taking the HESI and applying August 15 for this coming Spring semester. My question is what should I do this semester leading up to be prepared if I get in, to improve my chances to get in, etc.? Any reason to get certified as a CNA? Continue volunteering? Also if I don't get in, is there any reason to retake some of those classes I got B's in?Thanks in advance!
