From what I understood, they do not pay attention to the GPA. I think as long as you did well on the HESI and do well on your interview you'll be accepted. GOOD LUCK!

Hi Science101

I am going to SPSON today to take the IQ test and hand in my application. It has always been a dream of mine to become a nurse and all these posts scare me about this school but the program seems so flexible and the school has been around for so long how bad could it be? I wanted to know if you got a job as a nurse right after graduation and did you go on for your BSN? And, was this education worth it to you? I know things are hard and I understand people want to take the easy road and this is going to be tough, I attend a cuny school now and it is messy and if you are not on top of it it can turn out bad. I am just super nervous about these posts.

Not for nothing but the two Saint Paul's schools of nursing have the *lowest* board passing rate of all ADN programs in NYS: 41.8% (Queens) and 43.9% (Staten Island). Even the Swedish Institute managed to eek out 57.5%. http://www.op.nysed.gov/prof/nurse/nurseprogs-nclexrn2013-17.htm

Don't want to rain on anyone's parade but those first time passing rates are appalling.

Hey so how were your GPA's for those who were accepted? I have a low GPA (low 2.0) but I had a good HESI score, and great interview. Plus i have some clinical experience. What's my chances of getting in? Anyone else with the same situation.

hello I know that is this an older post but hopefully you still do use this account. I live in staten island and I was considering going to Saint Pauls Im just hearing negative things about this school, like they are shutting down and are about to lose their accreditation. Have you heard anything about that I really do not want it to be true because I was looking forward to attending Saint Pauls. I just dont want to get screwed over in the end.

Yea I don't really use this anymore. I attend the queens campus which is a good campus. No flaws since i started a month and a half ago. However, my friend goes to the SI campus and she is facing a lot of problems. Apparently the school lost their accreditation and a lot of seniors are having trouble finding bachelor programs to take their credits. I wouldn't go there if I was you. If you have any other questions email me directly at lfe.dope@gmail.com

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!! I just passed my HESI exam and now waiting for them to review everything. It is true that if you're rude to someone they will be rude right back. I've had nothing but a pleasent experience with the Queens location and look forward to starting this Fall, hopefully.

I honestly heard the Staten Island location is HORRIBLE!!! Please consider Queens. They are not loosing their accredidation and they are very much on point with the whole process. Like the lady said no one is going to hold our hands, BUT we do deserve the resepcet due since we are spending money and pursuing a career.

Hello how did things turn out for you? I recetly applied did everything I had to do. I sat and waited to hear back from admissions. With hopes of starting sept 2017. To my surprise after chasing these ppl down they finally called me and said they already had enough ppl for that fall. That they may call me in a month or two to see if i am still interested. Im so upset. Will they even call me back . I doubt it.

Hi Science 101,

I read your post since I am interested in enrolling at St-Paul School of Nursing, thank you for all the good info you provided. You mentionned that you have volunteer experience in hospitals around Manhattan. Since I am trying to get experience in the field, I was wondering where and how can I find volunteer opportunities in hospitals around Manhattan or Queens?

Pick a hospital and just Google "volunteer" and you'll find how to apply.

Here is the one for Lenox Hill/Northwell: Volunteer Services Department at Lenox Hill Hospital | Northwell Health

Keep in mind volunteering today is pretty much like applying for paid employment. You'll need to file an application, be interviewed, clear background checks, etc... In short the days of walking in to a volunteer office in the AM and walking out with a candy striper uniform several hours later is pretty much over. *LOL*
