Univ Wisconsin Milwaukee CON (BSN) grades as follows:
Anything below a 79 and you can not progress in the major, and must repeat the class until you earn at least a 79. Not for the faint of heart.
I'm wondering what kind of grading school you have (or had if you're graduated now) in your nursing school. At the University of Portland an A is 95-100, A- is 91-94.9, B+ is 88-90.9, B is 83-87.9, B- is 80-82.9, and a failing score is below 73.
I'm trying to see if this is in-line with other nursing schools in the area. It seems like our A range can be near impossible sometimes. Especially since we don't round up or down (i.e. a 94.82 is a 94.82 or an A-).
I'm excited to be back in college at 43 and haven't been in a classroom for 20 years. I'm seriously considering a second career in nursing, motivated by what I perceive to be an exciting, challenging, flexible, and rewarding career path.
My first college experience culminated in 73 GenEd credits and a 2.033 GPA. I never declared a major.
I was lacking direction, motivation, conviction, and overall commitment to my education in my younger years. I could not feel more differently now.
The good news is I have ample opportunity to elevate my GPA.
Will CRNA schools still consider me if I can deliver 3.3-3.5 for my forthcoming 95 credits and a BSN?
I understand many/most CRNA programs also require the GRE, and likely consider NCLEX scores along w/ other assorted criteria as well. I expect to be close to 49 or 50 if/when I apply.
PLEASE those w/ firsthand experience and knowledge, I am grateful for any information you can share with me regarding what is my best shot.
