Lowest GPA for acceptance into ADN program?

  1. Hi everyone,

    I am two classes away from having all pre and co-requisites completed for ADN programs but even if I get an A in these last two classes, my GPA would only be a 3.39. I'm feeling like this won't be enough for me to get into a program.

    I am applying to Massasoit, Roxbury, Quincy, and Bunker Hill and have only taken the TEAS V for Massasoit (81%) Even though my GPA isn't stellar, would I still have a fighting chance seeing that all the non nursing classes would be completed prior to application?

    Thanks a bunch!

    I am basically trying to see what the lowest gpa accepted was for ppl going into an ADN program here in MA.

    It's hard to say for Quincy, until recently admissions were based solely on the Accuplacer score.

    Wow - really?? 100% based on accuplacer...and I would bet tons of people get high scores but make horrible bedside nurses. sigh. i think you still have a good shot, that's a good GPA! beware: ADN nurses have a tougher time in the boston new-grad RN job market. do you have CNA (nursing assistant in Mass, I think it's PCA or PCT elsewhere) experience? That might help your application. Good luck! Go RCC!!

    Yes, 100%. I think the first group of applicants under the new criteria are going through the process now. Unfortunately I'm not sure when decisions will be made so I can't offer better info for the OP... Sorry, good luck on your applications though!

    The only experience that I have is clinical / patient of 17 years but in dentistry. I am leaving it to go into nursing. Thank you for your info!

    NCLEX pass rates for bunker hill in 2012 was 79% and for Quincy was 94%.
