Hey everyone, I'm an NJ resident looking to get into an ABSN program. I'm enrolled to take A&P I, II, Microbiology, Nutrition, Microeconomics, and Bioethics this coming year and apply to NJCU, Rutgers, UMDNJ, FDU, SHU, and Felician. I have a 3.8 from my first two years (at community college) and a 3.1 from my last two years at TCNJ, a really good state school. I feel like I won't get into nursing school with my GPA. Do they look at your whole GPA or just your 4 year college GPA? Do I have a chance or is it not realistic?NJCU said I have a good chance but I think they are just another adcom blowing smoke to get application money. What do you guys think? I'm 24 and have some patient care experience as a psychiatric technician. I'd like to do psych nursing and my BA is in psychology. Don't be afraid to tell me the truth and please don't sugarcoat anything.
I know Umdnj and Rutgers need a 3.3 minimum so I'm thinking their average is 3.8... It seems nursing school is just as competitive as medical school these days.
