this will be quick as i'm out the door in a few minutes. average competitiveness. only 12 at open house. school is known more for its pa program per my md who taught there. having unusual background, lots of volunteering and leadership experiences helps- must do a portfolio of such experience in adn route. my stats were not too impressive- undergrad at csula 2.1 and forgot to apply for graduation in 89- busy traveling the world so no official bachelors degree. however early entry (14 yrs. old) and an honors student with 3.8 science gpa and 1.2 everything else....due to incompletes that went to f's. very irresponsible at that young age but lots of international activism in teens and twenties, speak several languages. managed to settle down few years later and finish med prereqs at ucla with 2.8 gpa while running business in allied health. still didn't bother to graduate. then did nursing program at a pretty competitive jc 3.9 gpa, finished at age 37. also lots of general ed classes at jc to raise cumulative gpa to an unastounding 2. 891- with well over 240 semester units over 22 years. hope you get the picture......i have a very strong leadership background in healthcare though which they really dug and was able to prove my seriousness despite not so great grades.
if u have bachelors degree already why not go straight to dnp? you don't need a masters at some schools...not too many know this. vanderbilt for one.....or direct entry at western is fine. don't bother adn if you don't have to- i just am because its the highest degree i have.
hope this helps
