Look at the prerequisites you need to take and like another post said try to do them before admittance to Ivy Tech. GPA is not a factor just the classes they require before you apply. I have a BS in Biology and I re-took my A&P class to get a better score to get in. I did okay on the TEAS test (I didn't study) and got into the LPN program on my first try for Spring. Spring is apparently the least competitive time to get into the program. I did apply for both LPN and RN at the Indianapolis, Columbus and Anderson. I got in the LPN program in Columbus and Indianapolis.
Some say go for the RN only. I finished my LPN in a year (3 semesters). I applied and got into the LPN to ASN, so one semester off. I am working as a LPN, working on my RN currently. Going my routine, I have to take an additional semester compared to the traditional IVY tech RN program, but it is worth it. Plus, I didn't want to chance waiting and not getting into either program. Plus, I think it is little easier to work now because I am only taking one class and a clinical each semester for LPN to RN vs. the 2 classes plus clinicals every semester because nursing school is HARD!
I am just trying to get this done as I have been thinking about nursing for 9 years (after I got my BS). My 2 cents.
