CSULB Fall 2012 BSN - page 129
Hi! I think the CSULB School of nursing recently post new pool statistics including those who were chosen for Fall 2011. Knowing that the rating average is 8.91/10, that seems like a huge difference than the previous... Read More
- 0Jan 17, '13 by redwards6Hi! I just applied to the fall 2013 nursing program and had a couple of questions. How many days a week do you have to attend a class or clinicals? I live in south orange county, and I am a mom, so I'm wondering if the drive is going to be too much of a waste of time with care plans to write and studying to do? I am considering moving to Belmont, but I would love your honest feedback. I hope some of you will still get this, and hope all is well!
I'm currently a 2nd semester student, mommy of a 2 year old, and I also work. I currently live in Laguna Hills and the drive hasn't been too bad so far. If you don't have Patho, Pharm, and Nutrition out of the way you're going to have an insanely busy schedule first semester. The students who were taking all those PLUS the nursing classes were at school like 5 days a week it seemed like. I had all those classes out of the way before starting the program and I was at school twice a week, and clinical once a week (but had to be at the hospital the day before to pick my patients for about 30-50 minutes). I managed to squeeze in a capstone as well. This semester I'll be at school twice a week, and we have clinical once a week but sometimes clinical twice a week. It's definitely incredibly busy trying to manage everything but doable as long as you take it day by day
- 0Actually, on second thought, I would hoenstly discourage you from attending CSULB. The way they have managed this program since the beginning has been a disaster. They change classes and times at their leisure without any regards to the lives of people (some of us actually have to work and have to care for our kids). Classes start again on Monday and they just e-mailed us completely rearranging our schedule. I am HIGHLY dissappointed with this program, and had I known this I honestly would have invested my time, hard work, and money elsewhere.
- 0Jan 17, '13 by redwards6Thanks Anna for all of your honest advice! I do appreciate it. I have all of my classes done aside from the core nursing classes. I am truly sorry to hear that the program has disappointed you. As you know, there are not many options available for a BSN in the local area, and my score at CSUSM was not good enough for their program. Thanks again for your advice, and I hope they get it together!
