Hi Joyfull77. To be honest I don't know what my GPA is. It's just been crazy juggling work, school and home life that I don't remember what the actually number is but I can tell you whatn my grades are for my pre-reqs for University of Portland, for some reason it is easier for me to remember grades. A&P I (B), A&P II (B), A&P (A), Microbiology (B), Statistics (A), Nutrition (A), Chem 104 (B), Human Development (B), Intro to Fiction Literature (A), Bio101 (C), Bio102 (C), Bio103 (A), Theatre Appreciation 101 (A), History of Western Civilization (A), Cultural Anthropology (A), Womens Studies (A), World Religions (B), Biomedical Ethics (A), Psychology 201 (A), Chem 104 (B)..... and I'm currently taking History of the Old Testament so that should meet the theology requirements if I do get accepted into University of Portland.
I have worked in medical billing for 3 years. Then I worked at an out patient radiology office for 7 years. I also worked at an orthopedic surgeons office for almost 2 years, and just recently I was laid off and I got my CNA1.
This is my second year applying to the University of Portland's nursing school
. Last year I applied and was waitlisted (ranked #67). This year I'm waitlisted and ranked #1.
Last year I also applied at Linfield and was waitlisted. This year I applied to Linfield and was rejected.
I think they look at the whole package
It's been frustrating...but I'm hoping for the best. Good luck Joyfull77.
