I am a Sr at UNC and love it. Our nursing program is strictly GPA based for admissions. My traditional class had a minimum GPA of ~3.68, so if you have >3.7 you should be competitive (accelerated was lower, but I don't know the actual number, sorry). There are two traditional class starts, one in summer and one in fall, with an accelerated class also starting in the summer. We have a few different pre-reqs than other Denver area Universities; you have to be a CNA, have biochem (but not micro), nutrition for nursing (rather than the standard nutrition everyone else takes), along with pharm and patho. Our pass rates are usually somewhere around the 92-93% range (here is a link to all the program rates in CO http://goo.gl/9a4fT
We have a small campus with ~10k students so our classes are also small. Nursing classes stick together, so I stay with the same 35 people throughout the program. We get along great and even started a private FB group where we share notes, activities and just stuff. The profs are top notch and are behind you 110%. This summer we had a student get an internship at Mayo, a few got internships at a local hospital and a couple of us got jobs at University of CO Hospital in Denver. We have good clinical sites (ie. Children's H in Denver, VA for psych, etc) and I had a nurse at clinicals tell me she was surprised how well prepared and confident we were compared to other programs.
If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
