I am thinking about applying to their Pre-Nursing program but am a little confused. I searched around on the site for admission requirements to this program but to no avail. Does anyone know what kind of things they're looking for? Since it's not a degree program, are they still paying special attention to grades aside from the ones that can transfer over? My highschool GPA finished at about a 3.8 but my college GPA for the classes that I have taken is considerably lower, way lower haha. But as far as my classes that can transfer into the program, all A's and B's. I just need to know if I'm wasting my time and money applying to that program and if I should just finish my pre-req's somewhere else and try for the nursing program later on. I like the idea of automatic entrance into nursing after the program and have heard a lot of positive things about the school. HELP! Any info would be great! Thanks!

- Jun 3, '09 by brownroses2I forget all of the details that they are looking for and require. You should go to one of their information sessions... they cover all of this in their meetings and tell you exactly what their minimum GPA requirements are, etc. It's worth the hour of your time!
- I went to the administration office today and the lady in admissions told me that it didn't matter what my GPA was, as long as it was at least 2.5 by the time I applied for admission into the program. The only things they would be looking at other than that were the required courses, if you'd taken them before (i.e. Microbiology, A&P 1 and 2, etc.) I am considering transferring to the pre-nursing program there, since my GPA isn't good enough for UNCG's school of nursing. I plan on taking Microbiology during my last semester (Spring 2010) at UNCG, and she told me that as long as I had no lower than a C, I'd be alright, because my SAT/ACT scores from high school were good and my GPA from college would be at least a 2.5 by the time I applied (at the end of the Fall 2009 semester.) The only thing that stands between me and the college now is housing! I'm incredibly broke outside of financial aid and know nothing about and no one in Charlotte whatsoever. Anyway, good luck!
- So are you saying that a 2.5 gpa pretty much gets you in? I've been looking at this school for a while and the woman I spoke with when I called didnt know too much, maybe she was the receptionist. But I'll have my Bachelors of Science in health studies in may and my current college gpa is about a 3.3. I dont live in NC so I cant just pop into one of the info sessions. Based on what you were told, do you think I should apply or would it be a waste of my time?
- Sorry if I confused you! I'm not sure if it flat-out gets you in. I asked the admissions lady what my chances were of getting in and she told me that I was "a competitive candidate" and that I had a pretty good chance due to my ACT score and GPA. As it stands right now, I will have a cumulative 3.14 from all my previous coursework, and my high school ACT was a 27.
- Oh okay! And by the way, your ACT score is very good,so if it were up to me I'd let you in
- Haha, thanks! However, now I'm ashamed to admit that right after I'd posted that reply I got a funny feeling, and went to check my score again to make sure I'd had it right. Alas, it wasn't. I made a 24. But still, hopefully good enough to get into a nursing school. It worries me.
- LOL...Thats still VERY good. I live in MI and everybody I know that has taken it has scored between 19 and 21, so in my book youre above average!
