Prior degree in psychology; took the above courses at a community college while I was applying for the nursing program. Took me a year to get into the nursing programLast edit by Ayvah on Mar 8, '05
Mar 8, '05I got As and Bs all the way, too. I did get a C in a nursing course but that's because I was working full time and messing around too much and didn't really study as much as I should have. My nursing program says it will take students with Cs, but even if they used to do this I don't believe they do it anymore. Its way too competitive. With so many A students on the waiting list I really don't think a student with Cs has much of a chance of getting in.
Mar 9, '05My grades so far are...
Cell Biology A-
English 101 A
Intro Soc A
Intro Psych A
Developmentel Psych A
Interpersonal Communications A
I had an interview for the nursing program at my school, so right now I'm just waiting to find out if I made it in or not.
Mar 9, '05I graduated over ten years ago with a pre law degree and a GPA of 3.7. In Nutrition, Growth and Development, Pharmacology, Psychology, Algebra I made all A's. Both A & P's are accounted for the above GPA, but I made B's. I haven't taken Micro yet. From what I hear at my school it is tough and if you make a C, you are lucky. I made my first C last semester in Fundamentals. I was bumbed. My average was 85.8 and that is a C. They do not round up. That six credit hour course really affects your GPA. However C=RN.
Mar 9, '05You guys are making me feel so stupid! My entire class is averaging a C, and if I had to guess, the majority of the grades from all of us throughout the program have been B/C (of course, I'm referring to the actual nursing program classes and not pre-reqs, so maybe that's why!)
At least I'm still here...... :chuckle
Mar 9, '05I had a 3.8393 to get in. Since starting in January of 2004 - straight As, but it is much harder to keep straight As in nursing school than it was in the prereqs.
Best of luck to you!
Sarah RN in October 2005!

Clinical Nursing Across the Lifespan A-
Alterations in Psychosocial Adaptation (first 2 exams over with...90 and 86)

At this point, all I care about is getting my damn "C" and getting my pin!!! We just had our picture done (hard to believe they ever wore those caps in nursing!!) and it made it feel that much more real! Putting that little white hat on made me realize that in 7 more weeks, I shall find out whether I will have the honor of taking the NCLEX.

Mar 20, '05Our school is divided into quarters, I did very well in all my prereqs and right now am in the actual nursing program I have had an A- in human bio 1 & 2 last two quarters and a B+ and B in nursing past two quarters. Next quarter (spring) is microbio(pathophysiology) and nursing 111.

Micro - taking this summer
ENG 1 - A
ENG 2 - this summer
MAT 110 (algebra) - A so far (2 tests and 2 homeworks to go, but it'd be hard to mess it up)
PSYCH - A
Elective - A
Humanities - still have to take (prob next summer)
I start nursing core classes and clinicals in August
Mar 21, '05I graduated from college in 1990 with a gpa of 2.26 (majoring in beer/boys...) I had to beg to the higher powers to let me graduate.
Now, I have completed all of my prereq's with the exceptions of pathophysiology and pharmacology and I have a 4.0
The program I am entering in May is pretty competitive accelerated BSN program at a state school in Colorado. We interviewed with two local hospitals that offer tuition reimbursement in exchange for work commitment after graduation.
I think I am pretty spoiled now, I'm in for a tougher time keeping up this grade average.
Mar 22, '05Human A&P 1- A
Human A&P 2- A
Gen Chem 1- B
Gen Chem 1 Lab- A
Gen Psych- B
Human Growth & Development- A
Nutrition- will take this summer
Mar 22, '05I was reading this because I was interested too in what kinds of grades everyone has.... I personally have a 4.0 BUT don't let that freak you out. I know of lots of people with 3.5's (or in that neighborhood) that are getting in the GPA based admittance program here. I'm in California too and the program I applied to is GPA based... of course there are still some lottery type programs out there too.
