    Hi everyone,
    My name is Tina. I'm a Junior at the University of Florida and I'm praying I get accepted to their Nursing Program. I've finished all my prerequisites and am now just waiting to hear if I got in. I'm also working on a Bachelors of Health Science Education while I wait to get into the program. I'm 21 years old and have been married for a little over a year. I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you in the future.
    Oh By the Way I have a question. My preprofessional G.P.A. is 3.0 and my overall G.P.A. is a 3.3. The program wants a minimum G.P.A. of a 2.8 but that is no guarantee of getting in?What do you think my chances are of getting into the program? How many of you got into your nursing programs with a 3.0? I'm really really scared. Any info at all would be a great help
    Thanks

    tina, hello and welcome!

    i must say, you are an impressive young-adult to be working on one degree while waiting to complete another. with your zeal and your grade point average alone, i would say yes, you are in, but since i am not the one admitting you, lets, see.

    i do still feel you have a great chance of getting in if the gpa and having all the pre-reqs are a big part of being accepted.

    i do wish you well in your marriage and in all of your future endeavors.

    keep on striving as you are and always, keep the faith!

    Hi, My name is Tammy. I am in my first year. I am working on my pre-req also. This is my first post. I have been surfing alot and reading all the other forums. I too am scared, excited, anxious, and petrified!!!! I am 35 y/o and have two boys, 9 & 14. I currently work in the medical field. but as a medical secretary. I am going to be a RN because I actually would like to work with the people, not the insurance company. I'm tired of sitting behind a desk and talking on the phone to people who have no idea what is actually wrong with a person. They just care about cost containment.

    Hi, I'm Jacky and I am starting my ADN program in March 2003! I'm married with a 13 y/o daughter and this is my 2nd time in Nursing school. The first time, I had to have surgery in the last quarter and talked myself out of going back. How dumb is that?? Anyway, I am going back, 10 years later, and am going to finish this time. Nice to meet all of you and good luck in your studies!
