UNC nursing

<p>does anyone know what the process for gettin into the nursing program at UNC? How difficult is it to get into the program? Is there a percentage of accepted student instate vs out of state? thanks</p>

<p>Assuming you are an admitted first year, you have to take the pre-reqs your Freshman and Sophomore years before applying for your Junior Year in the program. I believe that most of the professional schools (Journalism, Business etc.) admit a majority of their students around junior year. Apparently, there are a couple (2?) different programs you can apply for in your Junior year that have varying lengths. The shorter program (that gets you your degree sooner) is more competitive?</p>

<p>I couldn’t find any admission statistics from the nursing program itself, but a quick Google search turned up this:</p>

<p>“No, I don’t think they are as strict for the 24-month program. They have a 2.5 GPA [requirement] for the 24-month program. When I read the 3.4-.3.5 thing on the transcripts from their chat session, that was just an average, so they accepted people way below and way above that.”</p>

<p>“I’m nervous about my GPA too b/c I think the average GPA (based from their admission forum) is around 3.4-3.5 and I’m no where close to that, but I’m hoping that they see us both as what we can offer the nursing field and not just as GPA’s. I hope we end up in the program together…that would be exciting!”</p>

<p>UNC’s nursing program is one of the best in the country and they just decreased enrollment by 25% due to budget cuts. This would make it more competitive for future applicants. A 3.4-3.5 GPA especially from Carolina’s science pre-reqs seems pretty tough. Very few people make As in the intro Chem, and Bio courses. Most people make Cs = 2.0GPA. Though maybe your other classes will help bring up the GPA.</p>

<p>Also, not sure if residency factors in, but they do mention they look for past service experience, essays etc. outside of GPA.</p>

<p>Hope that helps!</p>

<p>Wow thank you so much for the information. I really appreciate it!</p>
