    Yes, that is correct. NU only calculates your science GPA, TEAS, essay, and number of attempts. My GPA was 3.8, 80% on the TEAS, and I got full points for the number of attempts. I don't know what I got on my essay.
    Awesome, I have similar stats! 3.7, 82% on the TEAS. Do you like the program? Thanks for answering my questions

    Honestly, NU is very disorganized. The main reason why I applied to NU was because they are accelerated so I can sit for the NCLEX sooner. I kind of wish I applied to a different school, but the thought of going to school longer doesn't appeal to me. I have been basically teaching myself. Hopefully, my next class will be better. Some rules at NU doesn't make sense to me. A lot of my classes you have to score a minimum of 76% to pass the class. So even if you have an overall grade of an A, but you fail on the final you automatically fail the class. You have to score a level 2 on the ATI proctored exams and you have 2 attempts if you don't then you fail the class. You have to score a 100% on the medication dosage calculation test you get 3 attempts and if you don't pass you fail the class. My next class says that if we don't get above an 83% as your final grade in the class you are required to go to remediation studies for the next class and fulfill their requirements.
    Oh wow. Thanks for the info. I was thinking of applying for the same reason. It's accelerated. I already have a Bachelors and although I was very lucky to get accepted to get into an ADN program, it would take the same amount of time to get my Bachelors at this school (actually less) :/ Thanks again and good luck to you!

    I started my program this past February (LVN-BSN). I love my classmates. I feel like I've been pretty much teaching myself. The program is disorganized and some of the teachers seem like they don't even want to be there. I guess the same could be said about a lot of other programs.

    What were your stats/scores if you do not mind sharing to getting in the program?

    To apply to multiple schools did you have to take more pre-req classes or some classes were equivalent, I was planning on just applying to NU but it may be smart to apply else where also?

    Hi, I just heard about this program and considering it... For those of you in it, how do you like it? Was it hard to get in? Is National Univ a fully accredited college?

    Hi I was wondering what luck other students have had getting into other programs other than NU? I'm taking my pre-req's at NU but I'm getting a tad nervous about their actual nursing program. I'm afraid I might be setting myself up for only being able to apply NU and no where else. So far I've only been able to pull up transferable units between NU and SDSU and only a few look like they are transferable... I hope someone see's this!

    Hi,
    I never actually went through with applying to others programs because I ended up getting accepted into National's generic BSN program but I was eligible to apply to most community colleges and two other private schools and a couple of the cal states. I ended up choosing National because it ended up being cheaper than the other private schools and faster than the CC and Cal States.
    The only pre-request that National requires that other schools don't is biomedical statistics. Some schools may require biology and organic chemistry while National doesn't. Hope that helps and good luck on your journey!
