They have done away with their "wating list" now applicants are accepted
based on the applicants 1st attending an information seminar . Then grades in
anatomy, physiology, microbiology, and english "100-101", then besides looking
at those exact grades.......they look at the overall GPA which has to be a 2.5
or higher.....they would LIKE to see 3.0 or higher
The new method of selection will become a combination of overall GPA, core
science GPA, English GPA and any documented repetition (failures or
withdrawals) of core science classes. These criteria will help us select
students who are most likely to be successful in the nursing program. The
formula used is the result of a statewide study involving more than 5000
The following four prerequisites will need to be completed prior to
submitting an application.
GPA of 2.5 for these pre-requisites
*Other "Minimum Application Requirements" are still in effect. See GWC
Catalog for details.
Students who apply with all four of the prerequisites completed will be
evaluated first. Students who have completed three of the four
pre-requisites may submit a conditional application to be evaluated
pending space availability.
Current eligibility requirements (i.e. scholastic point system) will be in
effect only through September 30, 2004 for the Spring 2005 semester. All
applicants not selected for entry into the Spring 2005 semester will be
held to the new requirements if they wish to reapply to the Basic
Associate Degree Nursing Program, and be considered again for selection.
