Having a D in one of my classes, transfer

Hi! so I'm almost done with my first semester at RCC. I've taken 4 finals and I just checked today that I failed one of them and as a result ended up getting a 65 average (D) in my NUR 103 class. I wanted to apply for fall 2016 but I'm so scared that they won't accept me because of this. NUR 103 is just this calculation for drugs class that nursing students take here and I knew that even if I got an A it wouldn't matter because it wouldn't be accepted since I aim to transfer for my sophomore year. I've thought about retaking it, but I've already made my Spring schedule and there isn't any room. I want to apply to the nursing program and it's not a pre requisite but I'm so scared of it ruining my GPA. Even though it's only been my first semester and I'm a freshman, I started off with a 2.9 upon entering because I took some RCC classes in my senior year of high school. I'm scared of this grade ruining my chances of getting into Stony Brook and nursing. While we're on the topic, I think I might end up with a B in A&P 1. Is any of this worth panicking about?
