Nursing Quality Point Ranking System


Nursing Quality Point Ranking System

 

A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75 is required to be accepted into the Nursing Program (for high school students, this GPA is 80%).

In addition to the GPA minimum, students may earn additional quality points for the completion of co-requisite courses and relevant work completed prior to their application for Nursing. The Nursing Quality Point Ranking System is utilized as an objective way to further evaluate applicants for admission into the Nursing Program. The more quality points earned, the higher the student is ranked.

 

Please refer to the chart below for calculation of quality points.
