Hello everybody, currently I'm in the process of taking my pre-reqs to apply to the Nursing program, I still have a good amount to take, but what scares me is hearing so much about the acceptance rate. Currently I have a 4.0, but as much as I would like to continue with such a high GPA, I don't think I will be able to maintain a 4.0 in the future with the tackling of future classes. My question is to people that have already been accepted into the Basic BSN at University of Michigan-Flint:
- I understand the school wants a GPA of 2.0 or higher, but I know realistically it is higher than that, I plan to try to stay with at least a 3.5 or better, would I still be eligible even with a GPA like that?
- I plan to take a few classes at Mott and transfer them over because of them being cheaper and also because I heard they are alot easier to take there, would this affect me getting in?
- Currently I'm in the process of volunteering at American Red Cross and hopefully soon to be Hurley Medical Center as well, would volunteering help me stand out amongst other people?
- I don't mean to offend anybody by this question, but I'm a male as well and I understand that the Nursing field is starting to grow with males because of their upper body strength to help individuals, would this help me in anyway of getting into the Nursing program?
I've always wanted to be a Registered Nurse and like others am working my butt off for it to be a dream come true, but hearing all these rumors about they only take 45 applicants a semester, 90 people a year, really intimidates me and makes me worry that I won't be good enough to get into the program. Anybody have any useful info that has already been accepted to the program and knows what to watch out for specifically when applying to improve my chances?
