I've read through last year's version of this thread 100 times, so I thought I'd start a new one. I'm planning to apply for NCC's 2014 program. I'm taking A&P I right now (A- midterm grade, hoping to make that an A!) and will... Read More

    How do I calculate my nursing gpa?
    There is a link on the nursing admissions packet online where you add your grades and credits in.

    For some reason I'm not seeing that link. Is it any different than a typical GPA calculator you can find on Google?

    Go to Nursing Admissions on your school's website. It will open a PDF file. At the end of the packet(I believe) you can put in the credit and grade you got for the classes and it will calculate. But the classes are different from what the application asks for. You can also go to your unofficial trade script. Take the classes they asked for on the application, add up the credits and the points received. Divide points by number of credits. Hope that helped!

    I wrote to one of the nursing advisors about average TEAS/A&P/GPA's/number of seats and this is what she said:

    "Yes the program is very competitive. Typically we receive a few hundred applications, 70% of which will meet criteria. Of those students those accepted by rank have TEAS scores in the 70’s, GPA’s over 3.2 and A & P grades higher than the C+ minimum but you do not need and A in the course. Every year is different and you don’t know what the scores will be of the other students who are applying at the same time so obviously your job is to do well in A & P and on your TEAS exam. We expect to admit 80 students for next year."

    Those stats don't really seem to be consistent with what I've read here. "Over 3.2" seems so generalized and even 70's on the TEAS sounds low to me. But what do I know! Any thoughts? Is this a canned response or what?

    They admit 96 students. 48 for Fall and 48 for Spring. I was told that the first 48 are best of the best, all A's, best TEAS. Then the other 48 are random. That is just what I heard. But I know people with 4.0's who haven't gotten in as well. She is right though, it really depends on the group of applicants that year.

    I scored an 85.3 on my TEAS exam today. I'm fairly happy, but I think I might want to retake it. My A&P grade is an A- right now with two tests and a final exam to go. I'm not so sure I can get it up to an A, but I'm fighting for every point! What do you guys think?

    You can do it!! An A- is great and with two tests, you should be able to get it up!! Good luck: -)

    Hi everyone!

    I have also read through last year's forum several times,
    written down their stats and then followed to see who did and didn't get in. (I know...I felt a little crazy!)

    I will be done with my pre reqs this semester--taking A&P II, English Lit, Sociology,
    and three other electives because I want to graduate with an associate's degree next spring
    before (hopefully) starting Nursing next fall.
    I will be applying to Capital, and am really hoping this works out,
    since I haven't invested myself much into a back up plan.
    My Nursing GPA is 3.89, A in A&P I, and TEAS 72%.
    I will be retaking TEAS in hopes of getting
    it up to high 70s at least.
    For some reason, even though I studied for it, I couldn't get the score I expected,
    but I am thinking(READ:hoping) that my Nursing GPA may work in my favor since it's 50% of the admission.

    I did the SAME thing, so don't feel too bad haha. If you can get that TEAS grade up I think you'll be in really good shape for this year!
