Those who got into LMU, what was your GPA?

  1. 0 In early December, I applied to Lincoln Memorial University's accelerated nursing program in Knoxville for Fall 2014. Those who got in or did not get in, what was your GPA? Is it a competitive program? Also, how soon did you receive notice and an acceptance or rejection?

    I just got my letter this week. I applied in October and was accepted into the BSN program at Cedar Bluff. My GPA is 3.8

    Good Luck!

    I graduated from this program in 2012. My GPA at the time of application was 3.4. If you have a 3.0 or above and all the prereq's you should be fine.

    Hey Joker269MPCO, I just got accepted to LMU for this fall. How is their program? What can we expect? I have read a few posts on here that has made me a little nervous, but overall I'm very excited to get started. I would just like to see someones point of view of the program that recently went through it.

    Thank you!

    I enjoyed the program. It is fast paced, but overall I thought it was good. They had some staff changes after our class graduated, so im not sure about how it is now. While I was there the staff was there to help you get through, not to see who they could weed out like some other programs. I thinke we lost a total of 5 through the entire program and only 2 of those were academic and the rest were personal issues. Unless things have changed drastically you should have a good experience there. If you have any specific questions feel free to ask me or PM me.

    Thank you! Thats very good to know that they are there to help you and not weed you out! That makes me feel a little better. Where did you do your clinicals at? and Were you able to get a job right after graduation? I am not from the Knoxville area so I am currently trying to find where to find apartments at! It is not an easy task.

    lpc008, I did clinical at UT and Parkwest Hospital. They also have clinicals at Blount Memorial. I did get a job in an ICU right after graduation. I was hired before graduation and started about 2 weeks after graduation. Start applying at the beginning of your last semester and you should have no problem. I think pretty much everyone in our class had a job within a few months of graduation. There is a large apartment complex just down the road from LMU on Cedar Bluff Road. I think its called Sunchase. I cant vouch for how nice they are though.

    Thats really good about getting a job right out of graduation. I hope that is the case for me! :] I did go by Sunchase apartments a week or so ago and they were pretty nice and in a good location. Thank you for telling me about them.
