Cal State Univ, Northridge Accelerated BSN (A-BSN) 2013

  1. Hey guys! Are there any individuals here applying for CSUN's ABSN program for the Summer/Fall 2013? I'm currently applying and would love to hear from those who are into this as well. I'm still finishing up my prerequisites this Fall 2012 but I'll be submitting my application soon. Just reply to this topic to share/discuss anything about the application process...hopefully we all see this to the home-stretch next year

    Anybody hear anything from Admission Office?

    According to the last informational session I attended, -------------(the speaker) said that the admissions committee will look at the applications around January of next year, so I guess we all just have to wait.

    Hey fellow ABSN hopefuls!

    @SABCAL: On my CSUN portal it shows that I have applied to the 2nd Bachelors program and that my preliminary transcripts have been received. Besides that, nothing else yet from admissions.

    Best of luck!

    Hi AbigailRose! Yeah, that's pretty much what my CSUN portal shows too, and that they have received my application. My heart is literally pounding in my chest both because of anxiety and excitement

    @ReaperX: I know just how you feel! I take it CSUN is your top pick? Did you apply anywhere else?

    I just checked my portal and it says "You have been provisionally admitted to CSUN." From the CSUN ABSN 2012 thread another applicant said this probably means I have been accepted to CSUN, but not the Nursing Department at this point. So....halfway there right? Ha!

    Actually, CSUN is my only pick lol I wish I could've applied to other schools, but the ABSN is more "practical", and cost-effective, for me at least.

    That's what it says on my portal too...I've checked the CSUN's Nursing website and the FAQs there, and it says that we'll be notified around late Feb/March But according to those early threads here, they received confirmation e-mails that their application has been received around this time!

    Can't do anything about that, though, except wait. *sigh*

    Hi nextway55! That's pretty much what we have posted in the portal...nothing so far from the Nursing dept.

    i also saw the info as below. Is that normal to you too?

    But I already sent 2 sets of the updated transcripts of Fall 2012 to Joanne early this month. I don't know if she hasn't forwarded to Office of Admission ( that's why it still shows incomplete task). I wrote email to ----------- to confirm if she received the transcripts but she replied due to many applications at this time, they are unable to confirm. Sigh. But I think that we need to get admitted from Nursing Dept first ( which is more important) and later University admission. Correct if I am wrong.

    ================================================== =====================================

    Incomplete Tasks

    Admissions Preliminary College transcript(s) has been received. Final transcript(s) is required with final grades by the date listed below.

    I know that we have to be admitted to the University first and then be accepted into the Nursing dept (which is the reason why it shows "Provisionally Admitted" on the Portal, i.e. we will be admitted to the University pending acceptance into the program of the Nursing dept).

    I remember -------------- saying that we have the option of sending out 2 official transcripts to the dept, since they can just walk to Admissions and give them the other one. What I did for mine, though, since I have a course that is in-progress last Fall, is that I sent them separately: one for Admissions and one for the Nursing dept--same address, but different recipients.

    Yours would eventually work out as well, especially now that Joanne knows about it, so don't worry

    Hi everyone!
    I've been lurking on this site for a while now and am finally making my first post! I too have applied to the CSUN ABSN program and am anxiously waiting for any information.

    I have a few questions- for those of you that received CSUN's acceptance letter in the mail, do we have to mail/fax it to the Nursing Dept? Also, have you guys received an email from the nursing dept confirming that they've received your application? I haven't, but I read that past applicants received one around the end of January.

    1st day of February is tmrw...the waiting continues... :***:

    Hi afractaluniverse! Thanks for dropping by this topic

    You know what, I also got that letter today, but I have no idea whether we should mail it to the Nursing dept or not. I don't remember ------------ saying anything about that when I went to the info sessions...I'll probably e-mail them tomorrow about it and ask as well about that e-mail confirmation thing that past applicants have received around this time.

    I know, right? It's a new month already tomorrow and I feel like I'm walking the plank or walking towards the edge of a ravine or something lol
