Have any students with a 2.7 GPA been accepted into the BSN program if so which one?

That would be something you need to ask the program you are applying to. Most have a mininum GPA requirement. At my school it is a 2.5 but it is very competitive so if you had that you would be pretty much out. Can you retake any of the classes you scored poorly in?
I attend Ivy Tech Community College in Indiana. I really like it and my advisors and professors are there to help me reach my goals which is what I like. I am eventually going to transition to get my BSN but right now going for my ADN. They take into account 4 classes, which you are awarded points for, and your Teas exam score. I have all As in the 4 prereqs, A&P I, A&P II, English 111, and Psych 101. Those are the classes they look at but you must have a 2.5 cumulative GPA to get in. We can retake any class once and they will take the higher score. Maybe you should look into going the route I am, get your ADN, then BSN. Most community colleges in this area go off a points system.
Wow! Yeah that does sound more ideal:yes: I'll have to research if my CC i'm attending has that!!
I had a 2.8/2.9? I got a few Cs, physics, biochem, organic chem, got into a few ABSN programs. Every case is different, I honestly didn't think I would get in anywhere. I wouldn't worry so much about the numbers, just focus on getting good grades in your pre reqs, being a well rounded applicant, etc.
The school I will be applying to requires a 2.7 for transfer. You have to apply for nursing After your already a student, and the nursing only looks at their prereqs for gpa.
So, it would be possible to have an overall 2.7 gpa, and a 4.0 gpa on the nursing application for bsn program.
Most schools require at least a 3.0
I have a 3.75 and I got rejected to 3 schools, I would suggest repeating some classes to bump up your GPA

I needed to hear that:up:

Whaat OMG did they ask you to input all your class's or JUST your Science classes?? Sorry to hear that, what a bummer:(
You would be suprised how fast you can raise your GPA, espeacially since you do not have many credits yet. (if I am understanding correctly) I have a VERY low GPA:notworthy: from when I first started college and I am slowly bringing it up. Now that I am more focused I am applying to an ADN program. The selection is based on a point system and they only look at the prereq GPA. Since I have been in school for SO LONG I have almost all of the classes that count as an extra point. Here's to second chances! GOOD LUCK!
Where I am, they have a new dual admission program. You go to a community college and do the ADN, then you can go to the university to get your BSN if you want. The best part? admissions is based on just on the first semester of prerequisites and the TEAS. I have a prior B.S. -- with a 2.6. But, I have a 4.0 in the classes that count and a rockin' TEAS score.
The down side is that its 3°F right now.
