NSC "Nursing program-specific GPA"?

  1. 0
    On the NSC website it only explains that "Nursing Program-specific" GPA must be 3.0 or higher, (but a 2.5 or higher for all coursework). But does anyone know which courses are "Nursing program-specific" that count towards the GPA? On the point chart it looks like Biology is also separate? Are the biology classes counted into the GPA AND additional points given for how many takes and the letter grade you received??? Confused! Thanks!!
    PS-I know UNR you need C or higher in all lower division classes, but at least a 3.0 in ones they mark with a star (those need to be A's) but I don't see a similar list for NSC...

    I believe that A&P 1 and 2, micro and chem 110, chem111, medical term. and patho. are the nursing program specific classes they look at for GPA.

    You can check NSC's website and look at the admission page for the statistical breakdown of what the GPA range was for the last group they accepted based on the program they were applying for. It seems a 3.4-3.8 it the average now for all programs. It's getting higher all the time!

    Good Luck

    The program varies on GPA, so aim high and you'll be fine. By varies I mean 3 years ago a 3.6 was fine, then it went to a 3.8 and maintained around 3.5 then back to a 3.7.

    certain times are higher in applications and other times they are scratching for applicants especially in the p/t track. Its only a competitive program right now due to funding and going from 36 students down to I believe 15. So less supply equates to a higher demand.

    Now with that said I still think its one of the better programs for students in the vegas area for: cost, teacher:student, hospital relationship post graduation, yet sadly due to the funding they have lost some great professors (except that community teacher phew good god).

    Here is the Link! They just updated it for the group that came in this Fall 12'...

    I am not going to have the greatest GPA (many of the classes they count were from a previous bachelors degree that I earned where no one cared what I got in English 101), hopefully a 3.4, and I got 87.3 on the TEAS, so I hope I'm still in the ranking for the next start!

    Good Luck
