Hey everyone, I am in some need of some advice......and just my luck, all the pre-med advisors are gone! I am currently a nursing student, actually in a nursing program....but medical school is my goal. Nursing won't be a career for me, only a stepping stone and back-up. Many of you might say, that was not wise....hind sight is 20-20 . Here is my problem....I can't get all my pre-reqs done while in nursing school. The schedule of classes and clinicals really limits my time options. Here is another problem....I've dropped my GPA down to a 2.78. Yes, I got a D last semester in nursing, which isn't passing. So, I have to repeat the semester. If I decide not to complete nursing, do you think I will have a big problem explaining myself to an admissions comittee as to why I didn't finish? Will this make me look bad??? Some aspects of nursing I enjoy, mainly the medical aspects, which there aren't a lot of. Nursing is a care-giving role....and although I can do it, it isn't something I really enjoy. I want to learn the medical side of everything, which is not what nurses do. I am in some need of serious advice!!!! Thanks you guys!!!!
