what is a Good GPA?

What would you say is a good GPA for nursing school undergrad to get a job or into an NNP or PNP program? Is a 3.6 considered good?

All depends on where you are, what school you are applying to, and what the rest of your CV looks like. APN programs are increasingly competitive and for the best schools, a 3.6 standing alone is unlikely to impress. If you have a lot of good experience, are a volunteer, or have other accomplishments that elevate your CV a 3.6 might be good enough.

Of course, if you are trying to get into an expensive, on-line, private college, you're probably good.

Look at the University's website. It should give you their minimally accepted GPA to apply to their program.
