MSJC as competitive as any other college. It might be even more competitive than others since they started accepting people only once a year and they are accepting fewer people than other colleges. I was accepted into their program for fall 14; however, I declined because I also was offered a spot at RCC. I have a 4.0 GPA in my sciences and gen eds, I scored 84% on the TEAS. My total points were 95 out of a 100.
This is posted on the MSJC nursing website:
Student admitted to the ADN program in Fall 2013 had an Average GPA = 3.416 and Average TEAS = 72.9%
Students admitted to the ADN Program in Spring 2013 had an Average GPA = 3.824 and Average TEAS = 84.1%
Now you see how competitive it can be.
I have heard that their program is good and their NCLEX pass rate is also great. However, they are not ACEN or NLN credentialed, which can be a problem when you want to work at a VA hospitals. Like mopster said, apply to as many schools
as possible (schools that are accredited by the BRN) to increase your chances of getting accepted somewhere.
