Nurse Practitioner/CRNA School after an ABSN - How is GPA calculated?

So in my ABSN program, only 5 science courses are taken into consideration for admission (Unless you count statistics?): A&P I & II, General Chem, organic chem and microbio.

I'm basically trying to distance myself as far away as possible from my original bachelor's degree (Biology BS, hated it so much, barely passed Micro and Organic (The harder 300 level versions) with a C but I have an A in the other prereq courses). If a DNP program looks at my GPA, they divide it into cGPA, sGPA and nursing GPA. How would this work for an ABSN degree? What goes into the science GPA, just the 4-5 prereq courses previously mentioned? What about cumulative? Are some schools selective with their sGPA, as in they only care about a few science courses in particular? Will I be required to show my grades from my original BS in biology?

Every school is different so there is no quick, single answer. you will need to contact the school/program directly for information.

Are there schools that only look into nursing degree grades then? I'm seeing several schools not mention anything about a science GPA, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they don't take them into account. 

Also does science GPA basically just mean the 4 main course prereqs (AP 1 and 2, micro and gen chem/orgo)?
