Need Advice for Nursing Students!!?

It’s first semester of my freshmen year of college and I’m a nursing student. I want more than anything to be a nurse and I have 3 C’s on my report card. I passed all the requirements but who wants to see 3 c’s on their transcript when applying for a job? Will I still become a nurse? If I improve all of my grades will I still be a nurse?
P.S. I’m currently in the nursing program!
I’m also meeting their requirements to stay in the program

    Dont worry about your report card..when you will apply for job, they will see your registratn certificate..its important not a report card..

    Freshman aren’t usually “nursing students”. First year students are taking their GE and PreNursing. Have you already been admitted to a nursing program? If so, are you meeting their minimum requirements to stay in the program?

    If you haven’t been admitted to a nursing program, 3 Cs are hard to overcome when you are competing against people with a 3.5-4.0 average.

    Your “report card” isn’t shown to employers. Employers care about your license and your experience.

    I have 2 c's on two of my course work the rest are A's. I have speech and my Bio's to complete and really wanting to get A's so im workin hard on it. Dont beat yourself up too bad because you are already in the nursing program just get good grade here on out. Sometimes I know a lot of people just retake the bad courses and get better grades but who really have time to do that? I know I dont Im not in the nursing program just yet but getting ready to apply and take my teas test. Hope all goes well for you.

    You should be aware of your college’s minimum grade requirements for nursing students by now. Maintinence of an over all 2.5/4.0 GPA is the lowest I have heard thus far. One “C” won’t kill your future, but you need to buckle down and get higher grades going forward.

    No one has ever asked me for a transcript when I applied. The only thing school-related I saw is that one or two hospital systems asked that I graduated from an NLNAC (whatever it goes by now, I think ACEN) or CCNE school.
