You certainly get points for having a good GPA. There are different ways to get enough points, you just have to figure out the best way for you. Talk to a counselor or go to the web site and play around to see how many points you can get. I got my CNA and that was what pushed my points up enough to get in. I applied and didn't get in a couple of times. I just wanted it really badly and chased it down until I got in!
I would aim at trying to get at least 131-132 points. It varies from semester to semester but that seems to be what they have been taking lately. It doesn't hurt to apply with less points though. You never know, they could have a pool of applicants with less points and take 129 or something. I applied with 126 the first time, didn't get in, but I would have been kicking my self if that was the semester they did take 126 and I just didn't apply! I am not an expert or anything, but that was my experience.
Gook luck to anyone trying to get into Nursing school
. It is hard and competitive, but it feels so good to finally get that acceptance letter!
