GPA determination for nursing program

  1. 0
    When you were accepted into the nursing program were only the nursing prerequisites used in determining your GPA or all college courses ever taken?

    I'm sure it depends on the program you're applying to. I'd check the program websites or call an academic advisor!

    Definitely check with the program. Most look at both prereq and overall GPA.

    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.

    Mine uses 4 classes that are given points, and then an adjusted scorre from your TEAS IV test. Highest scores go.

    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!

    At my school, they solely base acceptance on cumulative GPA.

    My school only uses prereq GPA. Thank goodness because I wouldn't even qualify with my 2.3 cumulative GPA.

    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 ?
