For those that were accepted into KCC's ADN program, how much did your work experience and/or CNA certification play a factor in your application & acceptance? I've heard from some students that it doesn't matter if you have high scores such as a 3.8 pGPA/cGPA (with all co-reqs finished) and above 125 NLN scores...you'll eventually gain acceptance as a top candidate. I'm wondering how much it will help for those that don't have those high scores, for example a 3.4 pGPA/cGPA (only KCC cGPA, since that is the only thing that is counted) and 118 NLN composite. I'm not afraid to apply, I'm just trying to figure out my chances
. Regarding the pre-reqs/co-reqs, I know that I can't increase my chances because I am retaking 2 of the co-requisites b/c of the 5 year time limit. Oh and I got A's in those classes before so I won't be able to increase the pre-req/co-req gpa...it could only decrease and I'm making sure that this won't happen.
So yeah, if anyone knows about the weight that work experience and/or CNA certification have in gaining acceptance, then please speak up. It will be great help to me and many of the other pre-nursing students out there that have NOT SO competitive scores. Thank you in advance
