Rose State Nursing Program
- 0Jun 22, '10 by afineparadigmWondering if anyone is starting in the fall? What was your GPA and Preference Points? Is there an alternate/wait list and how fast is it run through?
I have one class - Micro, and I can apply. I'm cutting things really close, particularly with GPA vs. preference points. But I'm hopeful, and walking by faith.
Thanks for sharing!
- 0Jul 1, '10 by CalledtoCareThe cut-off this fall was 131. They go strictly off of preference points to get in. You can go to the website www.rose.edu to get the info on how to add up your points. You get points for GPA, completed course work, compass scores, and experience.
They do have an alternate list. I know it seems like I have a million deadlines this summer that all say: If such and such shot record or whatever isn't in by such and such date, your spot will be given to someone on the waiting list. I do not know how many people from the wait list get in, I would assume quite a few do since some people may not get everything in on time or might choose to go to a different school or something like that.
- 0Jul 18, '10 by SayraWow strictly preference points? That makes me nervous. I saw on their site that you get points for classes taken there and living in the district (which I have done neither) so I was hoping that a strong GPA would help. Oh well though, you've got to just do what you can and stay positive. Good luck to those who are applying to start in Spring!

If you complete all the pre-reqs then you get 34 points so it would be to your benefit to take all the classes to better your chances of getting into the program!Wow strictly preference points?

- 1Jul 20, '10 by CalledtoCareYou 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!
