I am applying to an accelerated MSN program that uses the following criteria for admission, with none carrying more weight than any other:
- Undergraduate or graduate academic preparation and achievement
- Personal qualities as assessed from interviews
- Professional recommendations
- Personal statement
- Standard Test Scores - TEAS & ACT
I interview very well, will be turning in recommendations from docs/nurse practitioners I work under at the hospital, have worked very hard on my personal statement essay (and my undergrad was in writing! ), and will be turning in a 29 on the ACT and have been testing very well on TEAS practice exams and am studying my TAIL off.
I'm just hung up on my undergrad GPA from my Bachelor of Arts program - I believe its a 2.7. In my nursing program pre-reqs, I have 5 A's, 1 C. They require a 2.6 for the pre-reqs.
Print and share with friends and family.
