    As for your GPA and NLN scores, it's definitely possible to get in with them. Katie's GPA and NLN are amazing, so there is really no question there. But I also have a 3.56 GPA and got a 149 on the NLN and am nervous. At this point, getting in really depends on what everyone else who applied has. The nursing advisor did mention at the open house that on average, students accepted into the generic program have a 3.5 GPA and are expected to get between 145-155 on the NLN. Let's just hope there aren't a large amount of applicants above what is the "average."

    At the Nursing open house they did mention that finding jobs isn't easy. I know some seniors in the program who have expressed some concern about finding a job once they graduate, but that's life since the job market is pretty crappy regardless of what your profession is. However, it's definitely possible to have experience other than clinicals. I'm working in a doctor's office now; obviously not doing anything of importance-basically secretary work and turning the rooms over after each patient, but I suppose something is better than nothing.

    The waiting is the worst part in my opinion. I'm going crazy over here, I really just want to know already.

    I mean, the NLN site says 200....but I think its nearly impossible to score that high. At the open house, the nursing advisor said 165 was the highest score possible, and generic applicants should aim for 145-155.
    Heyy there

    Did the adviser mean that 165 is the highest possible score for the composite portion? Because technically it can go to 200. The raw score stops at 160 (60 + 40 + 60) though.

    Do you have any idea what typically the highest NLN scores are in the generic program??? Are there many people who score about 150/160?

    Technically it can go to 200, but what I think she meant was not very many people actually do achieve above a 165. She said that generic program applicants that are accepted generally have a 145-155, and that accelerated applicants accepted generally have a 155-165. I don't know about in the past, but check this thread and you'll see that applicants this year are doing really well.

    I see... wow didn't know the accelerated program had such high standards!

    I don't know how much better applicants are doing this year compared to the last. I don't think the average should deviate too far from that 145-155 NLN composite average score. Sure, some people get above 155... but then again you can expect just as many to get below 145 who get in.
