Getting into UNCG nursing program
- 0Apr 10, '10 by 2ndcareerjoThis year was really competitive. Around 90 of us got in and I'm not sure but I believe the gpa's were around 3.75 and higher for the ones who got in. They take the top 90 to 95 students. I have a friend with a 3.60 who didn't get in. I love it and am so excited for next fall.
- 0Mar 17, '11 by horseloverkaylaI am stuck between going to ECU or UNCG for nursing. I have heard that UNCG has a very competitive program, as well as ECU. I want to eventually do Neonatal work, but I'm first planning on just getting my bachelor's. Can anyone give me some guidance on which nursing school is best? Or what UNCG's nursing school is like?
- 1Apr 19, '11 by Murse StudentI just got into UNCG SON you have to complete a Nursing 210 and Lab then you get evaluated in the lab component. The Administrative side will pick the top 90 to 95 students depending on slots based on GPA and eval from Lab instructors. Also make sure you get A's in your sciences save any B's for other work not your science courses, though some students have gotten in with a B in a science you want to be as competitive as possible. You have to apply at the end of fall beginning of spring and you receive an acceptance letter or refusal letter during spring break. I really don't have any information in ECU but UNCG SON is great so far, great Professors they are always there to help!
- 0Jul 26, '11 by Nancy ForbesI graduated from UNCG SON in 2009. 90 of us got in, all had a GPA above 3.75 I think. We were told admission was based only on GPA, not lab 210/220 evaluations, but that may have changed. It's a good program, all and all. Very tough and very rigid, you follow every rule or you are out, end of story. Some instructors are great, some are awful which is probably no different from any other school. It's a demanding program but I can tell you it prepared me well for the real world of nursing so it was woth all the effort and sleeplessness.
I'm now doing my MSN online and miss the interactions in a class. Best of luck to you!
