    I spoke with an advisor about the PRE NURSING and it's 2.5 for PRE 3.0 for BSN. Now i need someone to exaplain something to me because the advisor i spoke with over the phone i don't think understood my question. OK...so let's say my GPA to enter PRE NURSING is 2.5...ok that's my other college work...NOW...ok i'm admitted into pre nursing and finish up my pre-req's at UNLV let's say like 5 classes and i get all A's in them...obviously my GPA would be a 4.0...what's my GPA for the BSN entrance, do they average the 2.5 (all other college coursework) in with the 4.0 or how do they configure your BSN entrance GPA?

    What did they end up telling you? I am curious.

    well basically that the pre-nursing gpa requirement is 2.5 and the BSN requirement is 3.0, and i guess they're doing away with the matriculation thingy and going straight from test scores and gpa to get into the BSN program.

    UNLV is no longer letting nursing students in by matriculation date... unless you have enrolled as a pre-nursing student prior to 2006. They are now going by your grades in the sciences and math. It is a point system depending on the grade in the class and how many times it took you to pass it plus the NET score. Many classes require a B to pass. It has become competitive and since they are in the middle of changing things it may take a while to get in; they are still working on those with rolling entrance dates while trying to change to the GPA/score thing. This last semester they let about 6 people of 55 in on the new scoring system. Gives you something to think about! go to nursing.unlv.edu there is a form to figure out what your score is.
