Hello everyone, I am currently looking to apply for GVSU 2nd degree nursing program and am curious if anyone has any information on it. I am also curious as to if anyone would be aware of the chances for a non-GVSU student to be accepted. I ask this due to two factors. First, they have a couple of what I would call random prerequisite requirements, for example a Human Genetics course. I am not arguing that it is not important to know for nursing but it is literally the only nursing school I have seen with a genetics course as a requirement for a 2nd degree nursing program.
Also, a large part of determining who is accepted depends on what they call a "Laker Score" and this score is based on how many credits you have received from GVSU (up to 21 credits). So, given these factors I wonder if it would even be worth it to try? GPA currently is a 3.3 with a prerequisite GPA at about 3.6 (still would need to take a genetics course). Just curious if there are any non-GVSU students who got into the program or if that is rarely a situation that occurs. Thanks for the help everyone.
