How were everyone's grades upon acceptance into a nursing program?


Hey everyone,

I just applied to some nursing programs and am a little weary because of my grades. Was wondering how they compare to others?


A+P II - C+ (unfortunately)

Micro- A



and all my other credits (about 30) atleast a B+ and higher.. anyone else get into a program with these kind of grades or worse!? any input would be great thank you!

The BSN program I'm applying to just had an average GPA of 3.59 for their currently enrolled students. They take into account the pre-req GPA first, and then the overall GPA here. Then they look at your A2 and entrance letter, if you choose to write one.

Luckily for me the program I was just accepted to only looks at "competitive selection" class grades and their overall GPA. I had a reallyyyyyy low GPA from my first attempt at college at 18 and have just now got it built back up to a 3.0.

Anyways my grades were all A's in A&P 1 & 2, English, Psychology, College Algebra, & Medical Terminology. All my non competitive class grades were A's, mostly B's. Also I had a PAX-RN score of 93.

Grades counted for 40%, PAX-RN score counted 60%. My total was 96.4 out of a 100 and I just got my acceptance letter in September!!!

GOOD LUCK TO YOU!!!!!!! Let us know if you get accepted :)

I got into a competitive BSN program

AP1- A

AP2- A

Micro- A


Nutrition- A

Chem- B

Lifespan- B

All my general education classes were As, Bs, and 1 C (I had an F but it's not a class in the curriculum so they didn't factor it into my GPA)

My TEAS V was 'Proficient' which is apparently all they need.
