    Hey, I am currently a sophomore at Barry and I'm freaking out because I want to graduate in time and everyone keeps telling me it is very hard to get accepted into the Nursing Program. I currently have a 3.23 GPA but I am going to strive higher. What is the GPA needed to get accepted? Have you gotten accepted?? If so, please give me a few pointers because I need everything it takes for me to be accepted.
    Hello, well I am also waiting to see if I got accepted to the program for January. My current gpa is a 3.5 but I am still taking four classes so I have not gotten a response yet. I think you need to just focus on getting A's and B's in your science pre-reqs especially. I have heard that Barry is slightly easier to get into then the other nursing schools in the area. At the same time everyone is trying to get into nursing school so everywhere has made it harder for students.

    Ohh okay. I'll be done with the prereqs by next fall so I hope to get good grades from here on out. Only sciences I'm missing are microbiology which I will take next fall, chemistry, and physiology. I'm taking chemistry in the summer and I have no knowledge in chemistry so I am going to take a preparatory chem class in the spring... Is chemistry really that difficult?? Are you completing your prereqs this fall?

    I am done with all my science pre-reqs. I am finishing up my last four classes now to hopefully get in for the Spring program. Chemistry is a little difficult especially balancing equations but if you study who should do fine. For me Microbiology was the hardest.

    Can anyone please give me any insight on the EAT test. How was the vocab? Was it in a sentence structure or definition? How was the reading comprehension? Also, for the essay was it just a topic or was it nursing related? Thank You to anyone who responds!
