I had a borderline GPA and applied to Frontier, Ball State, and Austin Peay (Regents). I have worked at Vanderbilt for 2 years on a surgical med/surg floor. I had a 3.0 in my ASN program and then I did an online (Ohio University) BSN program and had a 3.7. I was turned down by Frontier and Ball State but did get into the FNP program at Austin Peay. Now I just hope I can make it through the next 3 years!
PS - I am from Cincinnati and went to UC for some of my undergrad. I also have a few friends doing their Adult NP there and they like it!
