Admission Requirements for BS in Nursing

Degree Requirements   

 An applicant who meets Georgia College requirements may be
 admitted to  the university for any academic term and be 
 classified as a pre-nursing student. The admission enables
 the student to take general education courses only. 
 Acceptance as a pre-nursing student does not guarantee
 progression into the upper division nursing major. 

 Formula for Admission
 An admission score is calculated for each BSN applicant. 
 The score is comprised of overall GPA, TEAS score, and SAT or ACT
 score.  Each item is weighted as 1/3 of the admission score. 
 The top overall scores are the students that are admitted to the
 program. There currently is no interview, essay or letter of
 recommendation required.

Nursing Major
Enrollment in the nursing major is limited to the most qualified students as determined by the Admission and Progression Committee of the School of Nursing.

The criteria upon which admission to the upper division nursing major is based are: 

1. Acceptance to the University.

2. Completion of the core curriculum before entrance into the  
    nursing program.

3. Must have a grade of "C" or higher in all of the following 
    courses: English 1101, all Area F courses, Area D sciences, 
    and MATH 2600 (Probability & Statistics).

4. Take the TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) before the
    deadline stated on the nursing application. The TEAS is available
    at the GC Testing Center and other locations nationwide. More
    information regarding the TEAS test can be found at the
    GC Center for Testing website.

5. Take the SAT or ACT and submit the scores to the GC
    Registrar's Office prior to the deadline on the nursing
    application.

6. Must successfully pass the Regents and Legislative
    Requirements.

7. Overall grade point average of at least 2.75. A GPA
    of 2.75 does not guarantee admission. Admission is competitive.
    The 2.75 GPA is effective for Spring 2008 admissions and for 
    transfers that declare Pre-nursing as major and request for major
    changes.
