I just got my acceptance letter to CSU Channel Islands Cottage Hospital BSN program at the Goleta Satellite Campus... Anyone else out there get one as well? I would love to talk to people about it who are attending the... Read More
- 0Oct 6, '11 by BeachsideNicHi...keep in mind that the fall program is at the camarillo campus, and our program is with Cottage Hospital in Goleta / Santa Barbara. I would suggest asking on a thread for the Fall CSUCI program and the responses might be more useful to compare your scores. Good Luck to u!

I'll be up there for the orientation and will take a look around, but it never hurts to have some extra pairs of eyes! I'm trying to keep it under or around $1000/month if possible...It's been a long time since I lived in Santa Barbara, and I know that rents have gone up! Relocating is challenging, but I am very excited to get back up there and start school!

I highly doubt you'd get into a competitive nursing program and not the university offering it! Keep your eyes on the mailbox and don't worry
- 0Thanx, Liv2srf,
In fact, I spoke with the nursing coordinator today, and she said that it's not unusual to hear from the university later... She also said that they have a very close relationship with the admissions personnel and that nursing students get priority admission once accepted into the program. That made me feel good and she got me all pumped up about the program... We are really so fortunate to be pioneers in this new program. The individualized attention we are going to receive is unparalleled. She also reminded us that it's intense and we should be prepared to dedicate the next 2 1/2 years to a toooon of work. I have faith in all of us that we will all have a great experience and end up with amazing training and a great nursing career.... I can't wait until Orientation!!!
- 0Oct 19, '11 by futuresocalnurse805I've also talked to a few people in nursing department and I feel a big difference between them and other programs is that programs like VC and Moorpark won't hesitate to drop you if you're not keeping up but CI will do whatever they can to help you pull through and succeed! This makes me feel really hopeful because it is going to be very intense. Even though we don't have to worry about gen ed we will be carrying a heavy load and unlike the last cohort we don't get to ease into nursing classes. They're going to throw us in the deep end and we're going to sink or swim!
