FGCU Nursing Program fall 2011

  1. I just applied to get into the FGCU nursing program for fall 2011. I am so stressed out and worried about whether I will get in. I got an 83% on my TEAS with an overall score of 75% for the science portion but my GPA is only a 3.13. What scores have people gotten who have gotten into the program in past semesters and who applied to get in for the fall?

    Applying to schools is a long & stressful process, I know exactly how you're feeling right now. I was admitted to the FGCU BSN program last semester (Fall 2010). I scored an 86% overall on the TEAS & a 76% on the science portion, and my GPA was a 3.3. The average GPA was between a 3.4 and a 3.5 last semester. There was a girl who got in with a 3.0 but she had in the 90s on the TEAS. I would say you're right at the cutoff & it could be a 50/50 chance. DEFINITELY apply to more than one school, I applied to three or four w/ only one acceptance. Even apply to community college associates programs...you get paid the same as a BSN RN!!
