    RN to BSN or MSN prior degree GPA

    So I'm working on finishing up my ADN program and should end with at least a 3.5 GPA. Before going to nursing school I got a Bachelor's degree in exercise science from UNC. In undergrad my GPA was less than idea. By the time I graduated it was right at a 2.4. I know for sure I will be applying to RN to BSN programs because the hospitals in my area usually require you start working on one within a year or two of being hired. However, I'm also considering some RN to MSN programs. Is there anyone here who's done an RN to MSN program? How competitive was it? What was the work load like? Do you think it would be better to go through an RN to BSN program first? Also, will my prior degree's GPA have any affect on the GPA they will consider for admission for BSN or MSN? I really messed up the first time I went to college. I was young and made some bad decisions on top of having a lot going on. I just really want the hard work I've put in over the last 3 years to pay off and move on past my previous bad decisions. Thanks for any input!

    Also I applied with 184 points. dhenderson88, don't worry, depending on where you live it may just be that your mail is slower. The letters were post marked September 20th. I got mine the next day presumably because I live in Raleigh. The girls I know that got theirs today live a little further out. So maybe you'll get yours tomorrow!

    They just received my transcript from Vance Granville for bio 169 2 days ago so I hope that does affect my points. I requested my transcript be sent in July and I had to call them over and over because Wake Tech never got it the first time... í ½í¹„ Also, I'm totally interested in the Facebook group!

    I spoke with an advisor on Monday when I turned in my application and she said no later than Mid October

    Just got my TEAS scores back! I got a 92 composite score!! 98 on the reading, 100 on the math, 83 on science, and 88 on English! I'm so happy right now I could cry haha. And I also just found out I made a B in Bio 169 instead of the C I thought I got. So I'll actually be handing in my application tomorrow with 186 points

    Right?! I was so surprised when they told me I had to wait for my score. I've checked pretty much every hour on the hour today but hopefully it'll be up tomorrow.

    So I just finished my last prerequisites a few days ago and took the TEAS today. I'm getting a little bit nervous. Without the TEAS I have 154 points. I took the TEAS through PSI so I have to wait "48 business hours" for my score... I feel like I did pretty well on it though and I'm fairly certain I got at least 12 points for it, if not 20, which would give me 166 points total or 174 points. I'd feel a lot more comfortable if I had the latter lol.

    I talked to an advisor last week and she said to have at least 160 points to be competitive and the 180+ range is typically definitely accepted. BIO 169 is the last class I need to take and I'm not sure I'll be able to take it over summer. I went over my points with an advisor and without 169 I've got right at 161 points.

    Ooh. I definitely didn't know that. It's been awhile since I did an info session or talked to an advisor. Might go do that sometime this week.

    I'm planning to apply for Spring 2018! With the way things are looking and the grades I'm currently making in HUM 115 and BIO 155, before taking the TEAS test I'll have 141 points. I still need to take BIO 169 which I'm planning to take in the summer before the application deadline and I still need to take the TEAS test. If all goes as planned I'm hoping to have 215-223 points before the application deadline. I'm studying my butt off right now. I'm so nervous because I've heard it's competitive but hopefully it will all work out :)
