Competitiveness Grades etc - page 3
I know, it's on almost everyone's mind. We want to learn, we want to learn well, but we also need those GRADES. How competitive are nursing schools in your area? Do you obsess over your GPA? I've... Read More
Sep 27, '05Good points LandShark. I'm applying to BSN programs. My programs all require 61 units of pre-reqs. They are
Anat and Phys I
Anat and Phys II
Microbiology (which has a pre-req of basic biology)
U.S. History I
U.S. History II
Human Growth and Development
Fine Arts elective
Cross/Muliticultural elective (I chose cultural anthropology)
I will also apply to the ADN program as my back-up plan and if I do, I will also have to take pharmacology.
I think I got 'em all. My GPA is 3.9, but I only have about 30credits I'm shooting for a 3.8 since that Anat and Phys I class blew my 4.0 . I think only one person got out of that class with an A.
Sep 28, '05The school I'm going to requires:
High school Chemistry, Biology, and Algebra
English 111 and 112
PSY 230 (developmental psych, human lifespan development)
SOC 215 (Sociology of the family)
PHI 225 (Ethics)
Elementary Statistics or Calculus
Sep 28, '05Quote from sunnyjohnHeather are you applying to Purdue Calumet or Purdue North Central?
I'm actually applying to IU Kokomo for their BSN program. (I think... I'm having trouble making up my mind between ASN & BSN )
Are you in Indiana?
Sep 28, '05The school I am applying to only requires 12 hours of prereqs be taken before nursing school. However, due to the heavy course load, they do reccommend that all prereqs and co-reqs be taken before beginning the nursing program:
Freshman English Comp I and II
American History I
American Government I
Physical Activity (2 hours)
Anatomy and Physiology
Intermediate Algebra I (or competency based on placement testing)
I will apply in late February, so the only classes affecting my GPA at that time will be the ones I am taking this semester (pscyh, bio, and sociology, and I clepped out of English Comp I to get the 12 hours of credit).
