Getting into an ADN program and becoming a nurse was so much more difficult than I thought it would be! For the program I am applying to: 1) the minimum GPA is 3.0 (they won't even look at your application if you don't have a 3.0), and for sciences it is over 3.5--most accepted have over a 3.5 overall GPA, 2) TEAS V tests scores are averaging the high 80's to low 90's for admission, 3) you have to be invited to interview 3) over 300+ apply for the once-a-year entrance for the 30 slots 4) after you go through all that, and are accepted, you have to pass all your nursing classes, 5) then you have to pass the NCLEX, 6) then you have to start applying for a new grad position which, after reading so many posts, I see is very difficult (lots of new grads don't have a position even a year after getting their license!) The GOOD NEWS is that once you have your license and have a year under your belt you can breathe a little easier
. Congrats to all that have been accepted for 2012 and Good Luck to those that will be trying in 2013!
