My school required a 2.8 overall GPA and a 3.0 in specific pre reqs (a & p 1 & 2, microbiology, nutrition, chemistry, college algebra, statistics, introduction English & genetics). But it varies every program. I would call the school.
My school uses your overall GPA and then looks at your science GPA separately. Overall, best GPA's get in. The school I am applying to is VERY competitive and if you don't have at least a 3.6 (overall & science) you won't even be considered :/
I am hoping to get accepted in February for the fall 2014 class!
I am applying to a community college that only looks at 13 credits and a TEAS Test. The program is a AS-RN program. I already have a B.S. in exercise science, however the 13 credits they are looking I have a gpa of 2.92 and they require a 3.0 . I am a little nervous. . will they still look at my application ?
You are accepted into the nursing program at my school by either taking the pre-reqs and earning a pre-nursing certificate OR by getting a certain score on the SAT or ACT test. For the ACT they only look at math, reading, and composite scores. Even with being out of school for 13 years I managed to score high enough on the ACT to get accepted. Currently in my 1st semester of nursing related classes.
