    On the off chance you stop by again, I'll go ahead and answer.

    To even be considered for admission, you'll need a 3.0 GPA or better. Most of the people I know who get accepted are sitting at 3.5 at a minimum. Once you're in, you have to maintain/improve the GPA in order to make it into clinicals -- most are let go around the time clinicals are set to begin.

    I'm sure UNCG's nursing program is good but I've had more negative than I have positive.

    A heads up thought if you're looking to save time and still get your BSN.

    get your ADN -- most programs take 2 years, maybe 2.5.

    Then get into a 1-year RN-BSN program such as the one offered at WSSU.

    Time is money.

I am at a 2 year university however I have no intention to stay there because GTCC set there nurses up to do bad in their classes and I cannot mess up my GPA I really want to go to a 4 yr university. Once again thanks so much for taking the time for reply to my post.
