    Hello Makingithappen3, There is a section on the scoring sheet which gives you points for overall GPA and Nursing GPA. If you have D/Fs on your college transcript you wont get the 10 points for that but that does not mean you wont get in. You can look into retaking a class.Using the repeat and delete as an option. I thing your Pre Algebra is a remedial class and they dont count.Your HESI score can be another way to make up for points you lose with those classes. Dont panic you are going to get in. From this point on focus on getting A's. The Five year cutoff refers to A&PII if you took it more than five years ago you have to retake them. I wil be at Charity Thursday so send any questions you have and I will get the answers from the faculty. KEEP IN TOUCH!!

    @makingithappen3, they really only take in to consideration your overall GPA and your pre-req GPA. So if your D and F are in classes that are not your pre-req you can still have a pretty good overall GPA if you have a lot of classes under your belt. I have an F and a D and some C's from previous college and the F gets no points towards your GPA. Since I have taken so many classes my overall GPA is a 3.2 which includes the C's and the D I have. But I made good grades on my pre-reqs, when I decided to get my act together and have a 3.75 pre-req GPA. Also if the D or the F is a class you need you can always retake it boost your GPA and they will replace that grade. I had a C in Psychology and retook to get an A and it boosted my pre-req and overall GPA. Good luck! I just applied for Spring 2013.

    Hello to all of you. Was searching like crazy to get info on CSON and stumbled upon this page. I have so many questions, about pre reqs, the Hesi, admittance, and just basic day to day routine of the actual school program. I work now full time as a telemetry monitor tech, as well as two other part time jobs, am 40-so a bit older than traditional student, have two kids 9&11 and am really wanting to start pre reqs in the spring. HELP! Lol
