My overall GPA is 2.7 although my nursing courses GPA is closer to 3.0. What are my chances of getting into a program? Aren't there some that look at more than just overall GPA?

Quote from meandragonbrett
Do some post-bacc work. Take some science courses and retake some of the other courses you have done poorly in.
I agree with this. I knew a lady that is now the Chairwoman of Education of a very prestigous private college. She told me that when she got her undergrad, she graduated with a 2.0 GPA. Years later, she wanted to get into graduate school. She found an SEC school that would allow her to take graduate level courses as a non-degree seeking student. She took 5 courses, got A's in all of them, and was admitted to the Masters program.
She must have done will, because she now has her doctorate
There is ALWAYS hope!

I have 10 yrs. nursing experience, 8 yrs. ICU with the last 2 being CVICU..post op hearts. I will have exceptional references from the 2 cardiovascular surgeons I've worked with, plus other references from professors and managers. I plan on shadowing a CRNA as much as possible until I apply. I haven't taken my GRE yet but will start studying for that now that school is finished. I plan on taking my CCRN in the next month and don't think I will have any trouble passing that.
