Hello all, I am planning to apply to UMSON in the fall 2016. I haven't seen a thread yet for other hopefuls and potential candidates. So I wanted to start one.

Hey! I just applied for the Fall 2016 CNL program at UMD. I'm only worried my science pre-req GPA, which is a 2.75. I plan on retaking A&P I, which I got a C+ in. I will be taking Developmental Psych in the spring and Nutrition in the summer. The rest of my science pre-reqs are B's. My overall GPA is a 3.28. I'm currently a Senior at Mary Baldwin majoring in Psychology. I am also worried that their only focus will be on high GPA, like people between a 3.5-3.9 and not other factors, like the essay or letters of recommendation. Although I understand meeting the minimum GPA requirement is vital, there are some nurses who have GPAs like myself that can do a far better job than other nurses with higher GPAs in nursing school.

Hi , I want to apply for the traditional BSN program . I too have a science gpa of 2.75 with a B in ap1, B in micro , B in chem , and a C in ap2 so i don't know how that will affect me , I also need to retake my teas I got a horrible score the first time .. I'm nervous to apply because my friend just graduated from their BSN this month and when he was accepted he had a 3.9 gpa yikesssss my gpa is nowhere near that .. But I do have good letters of recommendation and I have great healthcare experience on my resume so I don't know what will work out in my favor or if it's worth applying . I won't have time to retake ap2 unless I do it in the summer because in the spring semester I have the electives to complete for UMD . So I'm just confused as to what to do

I would still retake A&P Ii in the summer. Also let them know that you are retaking the course

Yes I am thinking about that . How did you do on teas , I took it before and bombed it because I didn't study properly ... What materials did you use to pass , If you've taken it ?

I heard that when you retake a class everything would be calculated towards your GPA. They do not replace your good grades even if you retake that class

I'm so terrified to apply to Maryland I feel like I'm wasting my time because my gpa isn't anywhere near yours ^ I may have a 3.1 or so cumulative . My friend had a 3.9 when they accepted him there two years ago . He just graduated this month with the BSN . So if they're looking for the perfect scholars that's not me .. So I still haven't decided if I will move forward or not but I want to because it'll be beneficial I live near campus

I think that we should at least just give it a try. You never know what God may have in store for us. We could even get into the school! For now, let us continue to work hard to show the panel of people that we can become the "fit" that they need as nursing students for their institution. @Nanky my advice to you for the TEAS test is relax, don't get nervous. Continue to study but don't over study.

I understand, you will do fine. And that book is helpful for studying the TEAS. There are also practice tests online that you can use to help you study as well. You can even download the TEAS test app on your phone and that can help as well
