The right time to apply to nursing school?

Posted

Hello Everyone,

I only need my sciences to get into a nursing program. I am currently taking A&P 1 and will be taking part 2 in the Spring. I plan on taking Micro this summer. Should I apply this Spring for the Fall program or should I wait to apply in the Fall for Spring 2011?

That’s kind of a broad question, depending on each schools criteria and how much you have done…. Such as do they admit by GPA, some, even in the same district, have wait- lists, and then some give standing on a wait-list to previous applicants.

Make a flow chart that lists each school’s criteria, and application dates, and reapplication criteria, so you don’t get confused. Finally as a general rule you’ll be better off getting in line as soon as possible. It took me 6 times at 3 different schools before I got in (Sac.Ca.);, wish I had applied sooner, before “RN fever” hit!

That's what I did: I took A&P 1 in the fall, A&P 2 in the spring, and Micro in the summer. I applied for nursing school in January and I started this fall. Once your finished with your science classes, what are you going to do during the fall?

I hope I will be able to make it into nursing school for the fall. I plan of re-taking some classes to raise my GPA. I currently have a nursing GPA of 3.0.

if admission is based on current grades, check and see if they will take future grades, or if consideration is based on what is current when you turn in your app. That may help your decision.
