Nursing schools in Massachusetts?

  1. Hi so I am a student from California who finished 3 years of college. I've been applying for a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing for the past 2 cycles and I've been rejected from all the schools I've apply to (all in California) so now I'm trying to expand my search since I feel like I'm wasting my time as a newly switched Health Science major student.

    I was wondering if anyone could recommend to me schools to look into in Massachusetts.

    These are the stats for the pre-requisites for Californian schools (i don't know if it's the same for schools in Massachusetts):
    My science GPA (anatomy & physiology, microbiology, chem): 3.15
    My non science GPA (english, communication, psychology, philosophy, statistics): 3.48
    Current overall GPA: 3.59
    TEAS: 86.7
    HESI: 86.7
  2. Poll: Are my stats competitive?

    Your GPA is low, thus you will have trouble getting into most nursing schools since the competition is fierce. I would find a way to get your GPA up, and then try again. Also MA state schools give priority to MA residence, so I believe you would have to be a resident for at least a year before being treated the same

    Hi Annie,

    Thank you for responding! I'm trying to look around at different out of state places I could have a chance of getting into; I guess Massachusetts is just as competitive as California is.

    Yes, I think you will honestly find that in all states.
