I am applying to UMaine(Orono) as a transfer for Fall’15 and i would like to know how competitive is the traditional BSN nursing program there. What is the stat of those who got into the program. Have anyone else applied? I would also like to hear any opinions of the program and anything else you guys might think is helpful to know. Thanks!

I think it tends to be pretty competitive (but I guess competitive is relative). Sorry I don’t have any specific stats of accepted students. I’ve never looked into nursing before. (I can’t stand the sight of blood.) But I did find this:

“Students who do not already have a valid R.N, license and are transferring to the School of Nursing must have completed a minimum of 30 credits, including the following areas with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5: biology or anatomy and physiology, English composition, social sciences, and math and/or statistics. Space is limited; candidates with the above credentials are not guaranteed admission. Transfer to the School of Nursing only is available for fall admission. Applications and all supporting documents must be submitted by May 1. Applicants who hold a valid R.N. license who want to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing can be admitted for either the spring or fall semester. ese students will be applying for admission into the R.N. to B.S.N. program. To be considered for admission to the R.N. to B.S.N. program, applicants should have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75, including a 2.75 GPA in math and science courses and a 3.0 GPA in the nursing major. R.N. to B.S.N. applicants should observe the regular suggested application dates above.”

thanks! I have been accepted into Umaine nursing. By any chance are you currently a student at UMaine? I would like to find out some information about the school and the area since i am not a resident of Maine.
