They don't tell me why. My gpa is a 3.46, I volunteered at 2 hospitals, and one of them, I have stayed there for over 2 yrs. I got my CNA license and did clinical at a nursing home. They don't do interviews. That's why, I don't really know what I should work on. Personal statement? Experience? We don't take test either. Thank you for replying.
I'm not sure about the programs you applied to, but I know the BSN programs around here have a very competitive GPA to get in. If you don't have a 3.6 or higher, you won't be considered. That's not to say the programs you applied to are the same way. However, it's usually a huge factor if the admissions program doesn't have a points-based system or an entrance test exam (e.g. HESI)
Also, you said you won't be done with your pre-reqs until spring. While many programs will allow you to apply before you're done with your pre-reqs, many of them won't even consider you unless all the pre-reqs are completed. Do they take apps twice a year or only once a year? If it's twice a year, then apply again after your pre-reqs are done. You can always ask to speak to someone in selective admissions and ask them what you can do to make your application more competitive for the next application cycle.
If you have to wait another year to apply, you can always work on courses that are applicable towards the BSN (e.g. Chem, Organic Chem, Stats, Pathophysiology, etc.)
