Purdue Nursing Program

  1. 0 Hi all! I've been on this site for a while now but decided to become a member after I got my nursing acceptance letter(didn't want to jinx myself. I'm usually good at that, lol). One thing that I've always looked for on here but never found was info on Purdue's nursing program. I found people on here that have asked questions but have received no answers. I was wondering if those individuals got in the program and if they had any advice or comments to give a new student. I got into the Calumet branch so I'd really like info on that one, but will be happy to provide info to anyone after I start. Thanks!!!

    Hi,
    I am a current nursing student in my first semester at Purdue Calumet. I love it here, so far the teachers have been really helpful. It is very important to keep up with your classes because you must have a 78% or higher in each class to pass. The only thing I don't like is that they have changed the GPA scale for the nursing program. For example, to get an A- you need a 93% instead of a 90%. To get a "B" you need an 87% instead of an 84-85%. I'm just about to finish up my first clinical and I learned a lot from it. If you have any specific questions let me know!

    Sorry, can't PM yet. Nursing school keeps you busy, lol. Well they look at your overall GPA but really at the core requirements, like English, psychology, A&P and chemistry. I just found out, though, you only need those four classes to get in for my graduating class. A lot of people in my class told me that they were in A&P2 our first semester and are taking micro next semester or in the summer! I had all credits needed for the degree, except nursing credits, when I got in. I think it puts you into a better position to get in to have more credits done than the bare min. But you would be able to graduate sooner if you get accepted now than getting accepted later. They have changed some stuff around for the graduating classes after me so called the school of nursing and make an appointment with the undergrad advisor (I don't know if I can say her name on here but all her info is on the school of nursing website). Make sure you ask what is all the classes needed to be accepted into the program and if it is still only those four then I would think about doing those classes at Purdue cal because I heard some people talking about how Purdue cal doesn't take some of ivy tech credits. Besides you will more than likely meet some of your future nursing classmates and these ladies and gents really look out for their own and help you out before you even get into the program. Sorry for any grammatical errors. I'm doing this on my phone, lol.
