Question on Statistics GPA

  1. 0
    Hello! First off, I am in love with this website
    I recently decided to get into nursing and it's been a whirlwind of a procedure so far. This is my first post, so please bear with me

    I graduated with a BS in psychology (overall GPA: 3.55, psychology GPA: 3.61). I only have to take 3 more classes to apply to an ABSN program in Florida. I think I'll do well in Micro, A&P and Chemistry (I have a 3.9 in that class), I didn't do so well in my Statistics courses. I took two and got a 2.7 in the first and a 2.8 in the second. The programs I am applying to say that they need an overall of 3.0 (which is fine), but how heavily should I weigh my statistics grade into that? I'll have about six months of volunteering experience and possibly a CNA degree when I apply to the schools in Florida. When the school says that you need a minimum of 3.2 in each class, do they really mean it? I'll be distraught, because I'll have over a 3.8 in everything else. Do I have a good chance at getting into an ABSN program?

    Thank you so very much!!!

    How are you getting a 2.8 in statistics? Not a B-? I'd ask the schools you are applying to but generally, I've seen the sciences weighted more heavily but they require a 3.0 in specific nursing pre-reqs. You should be fine but I'd ask the school.
