entering nsg with GPA lower than 4.0???

  1. is it even possible to be selected for the LPN program if ones GPA is less than 4.0? (after completing all pre-req's)

    I want to hear from those that made it in with less than 4.0...just to give some of us hope!!!

    In my state, it is. I have a friend who is an LPN and her GPA was about 3.0. She has since graduated and is now doing a bridge to RN program. She graduated in December of 2005. She has been a LPN for a year now. So, yes, it is posssible.

    I hardly know of anyone including myself that was accepted to LVN school with 4.0...

    My GPA for acceptance to LVN school about a 3.5
    .....................................RN school about 3.4
    I just got accepted to nurse anesthesia school for summer 2007 and I had whopping 3.38 GPA. Don't get me wrong if your GPA isn't the highest make up for it in other areas i.e. working at the hospital as PCA/CNA, volunteer in the health community etc.

    Good Luck and don't forget that grades are only one part of becoming a great nurse.
