    Hey. Quick question for anyone that maybe can answer. I had a&p 1 and 2 transferred in to GPC from 2004. Got B's. I know they said that if u try to take a course over it would be averaged. Does this apply to these courses that are outdated and we are forced to do over? Didnt even occur to me until today. Kinda bummed if so

    I went to the informational session last year ans asked the same question. They told me it wouldn't apply to classes that we have to take over due to time restrictions.

    I am applying for the Fall 2013 program (transferred in and waiting for transcripts to post to GPC) and I am a little worried! Re-took TEAS V and only scored a 68 (last score was a 64) and I studied that book front to back! I am done with all of my core classes, except History which I am taking now. Can anyone fill me in on the info session? Like I said, I have taken a&p (C in lecture/B in lab), a&p2 (B in lecture/A in lab), and micro (A in both lecture/lab) already so if I don't get in Fall semester I'm just sitting out till Spring with the hopes to get in then! I just wanted to ease my mind about GPC's acceptance standards with a TEAS score barely making the mark. I'm TERRIBLE at timed test please don't judge my score THANKS!
    I was accepted with a 67.3% on the Teas test and a 3.76 GPA. GPC focuses more on the GPA, just be sure to score profiecent on the test and you will be fine. I just graduated December 14th and was a RN Janurary 4th. You can do it!
    Aasiyah and whoadee like this.

    I'm hoping they don't only focus on gpa My GPA is only around a 3.2 but my teas score was a 79.3 and a 90 on both reading and math. I'm so nervous my grades aren't good enough, the wait is killing me! Did you know anyone in your nursing class that had a similar situation as me? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! good luck to all of you applying this year!

    keepmovinglpn congratulations on graduating! That is awesome! Can you give us an idea of what the schedule is like at GPC? I've read that you have clinicals twice a week, every other week but do these last the entire semester? Also, how many days per week do you have lecture? I'm trying to get some idea of what I'm going to do for childcare IF I get in! Congrats again

    Well my schedule was some what different bc I was in the bridge the 1st semester and then the LPN's merged with traditional the 2nd semester.
    * 1st semester (LPN bridge) one day a week class 9-4pm and one day a wk clinical. **note this doesnt include the sim lab days or check off days**

    * 2nd semester (summer) merged with the selected few traditional track students and HAD to take: OB, PEDS and PSYCH all in the summer. Between clinicals, class time and school work you are there Mon-friday 9-3pm. **note if you choose to enter the lottery to do the accerated track with the LPN's you will not be able to work during the summer FACT**

    * 3rd semester (my last semester) was alot better, much more laid back. Class every other week and one day a week clinicals (I did mine on Sundays) and then you have perceptorship.

    Hope this gives you some idea.
