Generic Track @ ECU

  1. Is there anyone in the traditional track at East Carolina University? They allow 130 ppl into their program. And I know all 130 ppl do not have straight A's in their prereqs. I guess my question is does anyone know someone who was accepted to the traditional track and maybe had a "C" or two in the prereqs? Also does having your CNA I and CNA II certificate really give you a better chance of getting in the program? Anyone feel free to comment.

    CNA 1 and @ shouldn't matter.
    My old roommate got in after making a D in stats (although this was several years ago and it's more competitive now).

    Being an A student doens't mean best nurse. We had C students that were better in physical care and techique than A students. But always strive to be your best and you'll get through. Yes, having your CNA I is required at many schools before you can even register for nursing school.

    I have it on good authority, that a CNA I or II is not required for admission into the generic prelicensure ("traditional") BSN program @ ECU CON. However, an excellent GPA is. The newly admitted class (fall semester 2009) has an average GPA of ~ 3.6. It's getting more and more competitive. Additionally, the class admitted in fall 2010 will have to score well on a prescreening text (NLN Pax) as part of the admission requirements.

    Thanks everyone for your comments. Although I was not saying that a CNA certification was required for admissions, I was just wondering would it up my chances of getting into ECU's program, but I know a HIGH GPA is more important. VickeyRN I have feeling like you know more about the ECU program,has the program admitted anyone with the minimum GPA?

    From personal experience, you can probably get on the wait list, but count admission out. I had around a 2.8 or 2.9 and got wait listed. Speaking with the person who dealt with some of the undergrad admissions, it was suggested I either a) take a full course load and make straight A's to bring up my GPA or b) go to a community college. I already had all of the classes I needed, so I opted to go to the community college and graduated two years later with my ADN.
