    Hi, everyone. Is there anyone who has attended UL nursing program? What is the required gpa? What is the admission process? Do you have to take pre requisite courses? Does it's reputation of being hard hold true? Just need as much info on the program as possible I am hoping to get in for the spring semester.

    I'd check out the website and make an appointment with an advisor. She/he will review your transcripts and tell you what else you need to take.

    Thanks! Where is Southeastern located are the admission reqs tough? I was thinking on applying other places just in case but Lafayette is only 35 minutes away from me so that's why UL would be my first choice. You being an LPN already probbably gave you a boost.

    Southeastern is in Hammond. I believe the minimum GPA is 3.5 unless you are an LPN then you can be as low as 3.0 and be able to pass the three NLN challenge exams. Good luck in your schooling!

    hi i'm currently at UL i transferred from texas( a community college) i tell you this much they are not detailed or 100% helpful as regards to what classes to take the communication or administration in that department isnt the best BUT the school is one of the best in the nation it's just unfortunate that it doesnt get the recognition it deserves because big names like LSU outshine it.yes the grading scale is HIGH but i believe there's nothing impossible to achieve.if you're really considering coming here contact the advisor but pls let me know what classes they told you to take so i'll know how i can helo you so they dont have you being in school for 8yrs when you can do it in 4!good luck

    I think you have to have a 3.0 to apply, but since it's selective admission based on GPA, it's usually closer to a 3.5. I know someone who had a 3.46 last semester and is #12 on the waiting list for the Fall. I didn't think that being a LPN or anything mattered, but I could be wrong on that.

    Well this seems like an old post. I'll add this anyway. ULL nursing is hard as heck to say the least I started clinical in January and it has been one of the hardest things I have ever done in my life. We had about 140 applicants and they always accept 110 as long as your GPA is over a 2.8. The lowest that got in this year was about a 3.0 I think, which is pretty great compared to many other schools. ULL has one of the best programs in the nation. Our grading scale
    Is super high with a 77 being the lowest C and lowest passing grade. (D's=fails in our program) you are only allowed to fail one nursing class. After that, you aren't eligible to be in the program for like five years. The instructors
    Are pretty cool. They know their stuff and make sure you do too. We've already ha about ten or
    More people drop this semester. 208-fundamentals is the well known hardest class. Even non-nursing majors at ULL know what 208 is and sympathize for us. It'll be worth it though. We get so much experience. Good luck if you are in it!!!

    Waiting list with a 3.4? That's pretty much unheard of over here. I know a ton of our class had 3.1s. I got in with a 3.2.
