Any opinions on chicago states nursing program? What about the hospital closest to it?
I got in on the 1st try. I know a lot of people that were getting in on their 2nd/3rd try after retaking some of the science courses that they received a C or below in. There are alot of people applying but if you have good grades especially in the sciences then it shouldn't be hard for you to get in. They told me that to be competitive have at least a 3.0 gpa even though you only need a 2.5 for consideration. Most people that get in have a higher gpa than 3.0. They use a point system and give you 1-4 points for about 5 sections, Science gpa, CSU credits (depending on how many you have you will get I believe 1-4 points) this year they added points for getting a Teas test score over 80% (I didn't have that requirement when I got in) I can't remember the other sections. You also have to take nelson denny, and have a interview with your nursing advisor because they have to reccomend you in order for your application to go to the selection commitee.
