Hello everyone,

I have always been a straight A student, but this fall semester I took A&P I and I got a B-. I am extremely disappointed.

I was just wondering what was everyone's grade for A&P 1, and also do you guys think that I can get into a nursing program with a B-. My overall GPA for the semester was 3.6. The school that I am attending right now only offers ADN programs and I am thinking about applying in a different school to get my BSN, but I wonder if this grade would be enough to get into a University. So my question is : do you guys think that this would be anough to be a competitive candidate?

Thanks :)

I was accepted into Jefferson University here in Philadelphia and my GPA is 3.42. My A&P 1&2 grades were B's, micro I had a B as well. It should not be an issue. I will be attending the BSN program. You should be fine I would think.

You do not need straight A's to get into nursing school. I got a C+ in A&P I. My overall pre-req GPA was 3.5 or something like that but I can't remember now. I'm a third semester nursing student and I can assure you that my GPA has declined. Anywhoo, stop stressing about tiny little decimal points of a GPA and focus on understanding whatever it is that you're learning. Actual nursing classes are very different than intro bio & chem classes. Focus on learning how to be a good nurse. I've been doing clinicals for over a year now and I have yet to have a patient that asked me my GPA :) Good luck!
