    Thanks for posting an answer, that helps. Just to clarify then, most people applying for admission to the Truman nursing program have already taken the req. courses such as BIO 226, 227, and MICRO 233? I'm a transfer student with at 3.9 on a 4 scale, but I'm not sure that really makes a difference. I'm signed up for some pre reqs this semester, but if I have to take the req. courses I think I'll have to give up this idea. I'm 40 yrs. old and don't have time to take all these courses before I even get into the program.

    Since truman admission is based on the point system, the more classes you take, the more A's you have, the higher your chances are. NOT all students have all the co req classes. you need to take at least one more class to be in the safe zone.
    The minimum point needed to get into the program is different every year.

    I have a question do you need a CNA license to apply for the RN at truman and if yes does it matter where you get your CNA license???

    Hi,

    you don't need to be a CNA to apply to Truman RN. If you are a CNA, the only thing you get is the 1 extra point on the grading scale.
    I hope this helps.

    I'm a first year student. I really like the Truman Nursing Program! It has its ups and downs, but I would definitely recommend it. The cost for 1st and 2nd semester is about $3,000 total plus $1,000 for books.
