3.2 GPA Nursing Material

Posted

Hello , I have one C  and that leaves my GPA at a 3.24 , do you think this is competitive enough to apply for nursing school since my school's minimum is like a 2.75?

That really depends on your school and what sort of program it is! Is it an associates, bachelors, ABSN? Do they do acceptances on a point based system or a more holistic approach?

In my experience with points based ADNs, they're EXTREMELY competitive. Even with a minimum of 2.75 GPA, likely the people applying have much higher. I would look into the school's stats, see what previously accepted classes looked like. I know I applied to an associates program with all A's and ONE C in English from YEARS ago and I was like...56th on the waitlist. Definitely look into your school's statistics. Also see if retaking the course will replace the initial grade, as that might be worth doing!

I'm scared out of my mind , I have a mostly B's in sciences (besides the one C) , A's in Math and a B in English , it' s "good" but I'm super scared. I just have to see what my NLN score looks like
