To assist in the selection students for a baccalaureate program, a school of nursing instituted a group interview process. An exploratory qualitative design was used to assess faculty, community nurse, and student perceptions of the process. Faculty, community nurses, and students who participated in interviews were asked to complete a five-item, open-ended survey. Data analysis revealed that they enjoyed the process and identified it as beneficial. A positive aspect included students' getting to present themselves as more than a GPA. The use of group interviews provides additional information for faculty who are challenged with selecting students for enrollment in programs of nursing.
