What was your GPA, when you got accepted into nursing school?

  1. 5
    There seems to be a lot of questions on how important GPA is to get into a program.
    So I decided to start a thread where people can see , and average them out. We can all speculate on the importance, but to see the numbers, sometimes helps.

    I hope it helps some people. I hope we all achieve our goals.

    I start in January an RN program, my GPA is 4.0

    When I started nursing school in 2009, my GPA was 3.9. However my program put a lot of focus on ACT scores, in which I had a 29. I had no trouble being admitted.

    I actually raised my GPA in nursing school. It's easier for me to excel in subjects that interest me, and I knew that having a good GPA was required for masters programs. I have never understood the concept of " C's get degrees; it's an excuse in my opinion.
