    Quote from VioletKali
    A&P 1 and 2, BIO 168/169 will give you more points.

    Yes Nursing is a completely different application.
    What kind of things do they ask for on the application?...How do they tally up points?...Do they give extra points if you have your CNA certification, CNA work experience, extra classes you've taken other than PSY 110, BIO 163, ENG 111, etc.

    It's a basic application. Name, address, etc..

    They look at the required courses and your GPA related to those courses. You get so many points for an A, B, C. You also get extra points for every point over 18 your earn on the ACT test, which they use as an entrance tool.

    The 60 students with the most points get in. CNA, work experience, etc, is not something important with the point system.
