I graduate with an ASN in May from UNG (formerly North Georgia College and State University.) I did not get in to the RN-BSN bridge at my own school (nor did almost every applicant at our school.) I have a 3.81 gpa! They are looking for folks who are: working in a hospital already, whether an LPN or a PCT (patient care tech), folks who are members of professional organizations such as GANS, folks taking the Leadership class at our school (4 semesters of MORE papers and crap), and all core classes for BSN done. You may get in with a 3.5 if your core classes are done, or if you are an LPN, or maybe a combo of the above mentioned. Otherwise, GPA alone gets you nowhere at UNG. Not even for current students! I'm looking into RN-BSN bridge programs, hopefully online, that I can use my Hope Scholarship
(which I only have until summer 2015.) Anybody have any ideas? Oh, and hopefully a school that is not competitive!!! I would just like to apply and give them my money, haha! I'm tired of competing for a good life! I'll always work hard, but I hate the politics.
