Charity nursing New Orleans 2014 spring

  1. I was not accepted for Fall of 2013, so I will be reapplying for Spring 2014. My current profile score is about an 50-55. I have a couple of C's in my grades that gives me a GPA of 2.8. I made a 82.33 on my HESI. I am wondering if I even stand a chance of being accepted for the RN program. If anyone has any input or advice please leave here for me! The more comments the better!!! All my prereqs have been completed also.

    A profile score of 55 is below the most recent cut-offs! Can you retake some courses, raise your GPA, and improve your profile score?

    I calculated wrong its a 60. Is it still too low? I did retake my HESI and literally made the exact same score as I did before. I was trying to avoid retaking any classes if possible but it looks like that isn't going to be possible.

    You're probably going to want to check with the admissions folks about what score to shoot for. A 60 would have been the bare minimum just a couple of years back but I was told that the most recent class had a much higher cut-off. Still, my info is second-hand and should be treated as such.

    Last semester the required score was 75-80. I Don't expect it to be lower than that this semester. I would recommend retaking classes and really trying to understand the material. Don't go into it with just the goal of getting an A. You need to remember that these are peoples lives. While it may be inconvenient for you to retake a class, it would be more inconvenient to get into nursing school and not be able to keep up, or worse yet, to cause harm to a patient down the road because you didn't actually learn and retain the material. Scraping by with a C is NOT okay. If you are serious about wanting to become a nurse you need to buckle down and retake those classes. I wouldn't bother applying until you have taken every class you can possibly take (AP2, Micro etc) and passed them with a minimum of a B.
