New grad - GPA requirement is it cumulative or nursing classes only

  1. Hi everyone,
    So many of new grad hirings I see ask for 3.0 is this cumulative or just nursing classes. my total average is decent above 3.0 but ifs it's only nursing classes it's lower I struggled in medical surgical. Would it be ok if i gave my cumulative? Just rather not be screened out before I get a chance but same time don't want to lie ...nor misrepresent self.

    Hmm new Grad must be graduated from school within one year so I have 6 months to find work in hospital before I'm not one but still unemployed. This i my first week job searching and so far i just see need exp only. -thank you
