Thank You Note to GPC's Nursing Program - page 5

I can’t neglect to thank the faculty and staff of the GPC nursing program for my experience while enrolled. The reason it is important for me to say thanks is because my plethora of negative... Read More

    But it's okay to think (or question) that people are " just a bunch of mediocre students who had no choice" because they were not above average students in school. It's funny to me that many people ask questions about what's posted, and on one takes offense, but usually if more than one person takes offense to something, it's probably because it was offensive. I could've thought of many ways to ask a question without making a negative accusation along with it. Just ask the question, there's no need to put your opinion, definitely it it's negative, of the people who are subscribing to this post, let's not forget what this post is about. There are over 5 pages of comments about this same school, and most of the posts are negative comments. A valid way of asking this question is " These are my scores...etc..., I see all the things that people are saying about GPC, do you think that I will personally have a hard time with the program...?"
    Please let me clarify again. Yes, this was determined by staff to be an appropriate question. Worried did NOT accuse anyone of being mediocre. He/she only asked if that was the case here. If he/she would have stated, "you people are just a bunch of mediocre students," THEN it would have been unacceptable and edited/deleted. People are taking offense because they FEEL like he/she was calling THEM "mediocre" which he/she did NOT. Please, reread the original post by Worried without being personally invested/bias and I believe you will see what I am stating. There is a big difference between, "Is it mediocre students or is it really that tough" and, what many people here are reading..."It IS mediocre students, it's not that tough."

    All that being stated, I would like to remind everyone that attacking others, as well as openly disagreeing with staff decisions on the public forum, is against the terms of service. This thread is going off-track. In order to keep it open. Let's get back to the op's post about GPC and not about WorriedStudent.

    I will be attended GPC in that summer. I was there last week and when I inquired about the LPN bridge progam they said that there was no bridge for 2009."It is being revamped". I guess all the comments on here are true and the school as well as the nursing board has realized this. I hope by the time I finish my prereqs that they have fixed the issues and their "attitudes". Wish me luck

    After reading this thread, are we sure the nursing program is that bad over there, or is it just a bunch of mediocre students who had no choice but to go to Perimeter that are complaining?

    Me: 1200 SAT score out of 9th grade
    Compass: Reading/Writing/Math (out of 9th): 99/99/63
    NET: 90th percentile with no prep or studying.
    GPA: 3.75 Biology, 3.35 Nursing program, 3.8 overall since starting back to school.
    Gifted program since first grade.

    I guess I am wondering if I will personally have a hard time with the program...

    I am an escapee from the GPC nursing program and am happy to say I am now thriving in another program and yes actually believe I will graduate. I would just like to say that if 6 pages of mostly negative comments don't convince you to stay away from this school maybe this last thought will........No one and I do mean no one transfers into the GPC nursing program, they only transfer out! Good luck.

    I started last fall and I think I got my letter in April or May.

    Thank you for your response. The letter that I got said that we would get our letters by April 30th. So, is it really as bad as this post says?

    It did not take me long to choose NGCSU over GPC....I do need to take A&P at GPC though, has anyone tried the online version or would you suggest doing the physical class?

    Have you taken an on-line science course? Like Chemistry? If so, and you did well than I'm sure it would be fine. But I promise it is nothing like taking History, Political Science, etc.

    I took Chemistry on-line and vowed never to take another science class on-line.

    Hello Everyone
    Has anyone applied to the fall 2009 program?
    and for those of you that have recently been accepted (last semester) what were your grades and gpa, and net score?
    I currently have
    -A-class/A-lab For A&P 1
    and
    -A-class/B-lab For A&P 2
    -Taking Micro Now starting Jan 12th
    -Net on Jan 17th

    I graduate this May from GPC. I had all my sciences done before I started nursing. But when I applied I still had to do micro. In A&P 1 I had a B and A&P 2 I had an A (figures right? LOL) I had everything else done except for my humanities. They accepted me on my first application. If you're Phi Theta Kappa I think it looks real appealing to them and as long as you have most of your sciences done you're in.

    I would highly recommend having most, if not all, of your classes completed before starting nursing. It's incredible how much time this one class will take up your time. Most classes are 3 credit hours, nursing is 9 or 10. So it's like taking 3 other full time classes. AND THEN SOME LOL

    Good Luck!!!
