Your gpa?

  1. I will begin applying to nursing schools next quarter and I was wondering...of those of you who were accepted into nursing school what was your cumulative gpa in the prereqs? For those who weren't offered admission what was your cumulative?

    I have no dillusions (sp) about the difficulty of getting into nursing school and was just curious about others gpa's since it is the primary factor for acceptance. Thanks for sharing!!!

    I had a 3.3 when I was accepted. The way they decided who got in was based on a point system. You got so many points for having co-reqs done, how many credits you had, a couple for living in-county, and points equal to GPA (so I got 3.3 points for that.) All told, I think I had 29 points out of 32.

    Oh yeah, and I got a 99 on the NLN entrance exam. That counted for 10 points.

    I had a 4.0 and had all my pre-reqs done ( well I was still in Micro when I applied). My class had 63 to begin with and the lowest gpa was 3.6 something.

    4.0 in pre and co-reqs when accepted (only have child psych left to take)
    No health care/volunteer work at all
    Scored in the top 3% of the nation for the TEAS test
    There's 142 of us this year, I know some people that got in on 3.0s w/ a lot of previous health care work.

    4.0, but that was weighted at 50% for ranking purposes - the other 50% was my HESI exam score.

    Good luck to you!
