Yesterday I went to the University's information session about nursing school and found out how they accept students.
They take about 188 each year (last year they had 300 apply). You have to have all (64) prerequisites completed before you are allowed in. They will let you know you are accepted Spring Break before their courses start on the 1st of June. (This is based on you completing the final spring semester with good grades). They start at 4.0 GPA and work on down till slots are full. That's it, no essay, no pre-entrance exam...just based on GPA alone.
So my background is: I am 36, have 2 boys (9 & 11 years old), don't work, and have a supportive husband. I attended college out of high school (back in 1991) and got C's in about 21 semester hours. Right now my total GPA is 2.5
I can retake them for better grades (I know I can do better then back then) and they will accept them.
So my questions are:
Do I just start completely over?
Do I need to refresh on Nutrition, Biology, and Human Growth & Development (it's been since 1991-1992 since I have taken them) for A&P, Microbiology or upcoming nursing classes/clinicals?
Would you go part-time course load for 3 community college years or pack it in to 2 community college years and get it over with?
Any suggestions, ideas, information would be appreciated.
Thank you so much for any help. Have a great weekend!
