Do schools look at ADN or BSN grades?

  1. i am starting nursing school this fall. I will be in an ADN program. I may go back later to get my BSN (if I go to a school that requires it, I already have a BS in chemistry). What I want to know is... Will schools take the GPA from just the BSN or do they use the cumulative GPA. Just curious. Any type of information would be helpful.

    I too already had a BS when I went to nursing school. My school calculated the GPA based on the cumulative of ALL classes I had taken before, just not the nursing ones (or ones related to my nursing degree).

    yu can call the Admissions office for better info, but my transcript reflected a cumulative grade.
