    Does anyone know what the lowest gpa was that was accepted into the nursing program at Gwinnett Tech for the new Fall 2009 class? Thanks a bunch!! :wink2:

    Do you guys think that a 3.5 prerequisite gpa will stand a chance? What is the HESI exam like? What is the minimum score on this test for admission? Thanks so much!

    GaMommy81 - Your GPA should be fine. I got in with 3.67. I don't remember my HESI score, but you have to get atleast a 70%. It just your typical entrance exam. I found it a little easier than the NET. I also had to do an panel interview. Good luck! Have you already applied?

    Thank you. I have not applied yet. I am going to apply for Fall 2010. Do they just pull your file at the deadline? What if I don't get in? Is there a way I could have a back up plan like Respiratory Therapy at Gwinnett Tech since the deadline is the same? I have so many questions. A panel interview. That sounds very intimidating! I will have to practice my interviewing skills. Congrats on your acceptance. Let us all know how the program is.

    I am thinking of applying at Gwinnett Tech for the Fall 2010 class. I'd be interested in hearing from the Fall 2009 students as to what they think about the program so far....

    First of all Congrats on getting your acceptance letters! Did you guys have to take pre-reqs first, then apply; or apply first and then take pre=reqs? and how about the entrance test? do you have to take that first? Please help me out here. I am curently doing my pre-reqs for LPN, and need to take NLN soon to get in LPN program but I have a change of heart! I want to become an RN! what do i need to do? keep taking this classes that they are not going to be counted, or just drop everything and go to gwinnett tech and start taking pre-reqs?
    Thank you for answers in advance

    Re: Gwinnett Tech Nursing Programcan you help me out? what did you have to do? take the pre-reqs first then apply or apply and take the entry test first and then take the pre-reqs? i don't know the order!

    You have to take the pre req's 1st. Eng 1101,College Algebra,PSY1101,AP1 and AP2, and MICRO. Then you apply to Nursing program (deadline Jan 15th for Fall Entry) If you qualify for GPA and Pre-Req's you will be invited to take Nursing Exam (HESI 2). Program is done in LockStep with 40 students admitted each Fall. Hope that helps
