Has anyone gotten into nursing school with a low gpa? - Page 5Register Today!
- Dec 15, '06 by catzy5Quote from Cstarz2k5My school is similiar, you can only get a minimum of a c in the introductory courses and can repeate only 1 class once to meet the 2.5 gpa..my mistake was trying to take on to much at once now i gotta retake math..and my A&P grade isnt all that appealing..i think i'll still ask to see if they will accept A&P 2 instead of A&P 1 for my introductory science course..if not i'll repeat that course and take a higher math. seems like there may be hope for me yet.....Thanks 4 the advice...
You said as far as science classes go thats not really an option..is that what you where told or speculation?
for my school its not an option for the sciences because they are so specific ap 102 and micro there isn't anything higher i could take to replace it (at my school). Chemistry is needed but not a pre req if it were you have other options of higher chem classes to take. But like everything check with your individual school they all vary so much!
- Dec 16, '06 by USCUAmberI got accepted into the program with exactly a 3.0 GPA so I'm sure you can find somewhere to get in. At my school the only thing you cant retake if you are a nursing majorer is a science more than once. Which I had to do myself and I still was able to get in.

- Jun 28, '08 by lkjmpQuote from stpauligirltell me about it, it's also VERY depressing when your gpa is lowCongratualtions on your acomplishments. You will give a lot of people hope here.
The constant pressure of "I've got to get an A in this class" gets old......
- Jun 29, '08 by coolpeachOur school admits on a point system with no waiting lists. You add your GPA + points for completing support courses + Hesi entrance exam grade points after 75. That being said GPA is a smaller portion of the points system than the Hesi entrance so you could make up the difference by doing extremely well on the test.

- Jun 29, '08 by baldeePeople, it would be helpful if you stated what school you got accepted into: CC, State College/University, Private School, or Commercial Trade School.
Otherwise your posts have no relevance AT ALL!! :roll
- Jun 29, '08 by RhodyGirl, RNIt is definitely possible to get into NS with a 3.0
I had a 3.3 when I was accepted.
I also have a friend who was accepted the semester before me and she had a 3.0 right on the dot!
Don't let other people scare you. It might be a little more difficult, but you can get into NS with a B average. Look at all of your options; community college, public 4 yr college, private school, LPN programs, and diploma programs.
BTW, I go to Rhode Island College: www.ric.edu
- Jul 27, '08 by Butterfly3001WOW if forgot all about this thread until now. I started this thread like 2 years ago and Im back to say it is possible. I finally got in both a LPN program and RN. I chose the RN program. My school is Santa Fe community college in Gainesville fl. Its based on points my points went up this year because I retook my entrance exam and got higher scores and I got in. So it is possible. Even though it did take me two years, it was a loooong road but oh so worth the wait. Keep at it guys and don't let anyone tell u can't do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
