UAH uses GPA not a point system. Also must take a per HESI which almost all nursing schools in the state have started using, even Calhoun. I graduated from UAH, had a job prior to graduation, and moved up quickly at my hospital. The program was difficult at times but my teachers were also willing to work with me. Enjoyed almost all my instructors and clinical instructors. I went to the school before I applied and discussed my chances of being accepted. Sometimes it's good to go meet the people (or call) an see what they can tell you. They are pretty up front with you.
