CSUSB Winter 2013 - page 11
Hey everyone, this is the first application process for a Nursing program for myself and I am only applying to CSUSB for Winter 2013. I wanted to see if anyone else is in the same boat as me. I am very nervous for this process!!!... Read More
- 0Dec 14, '12 by Carol220@DarkBluePhoenix, I noticed you were on the CSULB Fall 2012 thread, and I noticed that you are going to CSUSB instead... I'm curious, why didn't you go to Long Beach? I am applying for the CSULB Fall 2013 program, and I believe I have a 9.1 which is what I think you had, but I don't remember exactly what I read... was that score not sufficient enough to get into the program? I'm just wondering if I need to retake my TEAS. . . Thank you, and congratulations on getting into CSUSB!

I got as far as an interview for CSULB. I had about a 9.13 (which wasn't good enough anyway) but I got denied to the university because I failed one engineering class years ago. The nursing dept tried to fight with admitting to let me in but they did not budge. What was really screwed up, is that they knew I could never get into the program (academic wise AND because of the university denying me entry) but let me go to the interview anyway and didn't let me know until I called over a hundred times. That nursing dept has a lot of issues and don't seem very nice to their students so I am glad I didn't end up there.
But for you, good luck. There program is very hard to get into. Just put your mind to it and you will get in!
- 1Dec 31, '12 by DarkBluePhoenixNo problem! Honestly, I would very much apply to as many programs as possible, even the ones that are far away or you may not be inclined to go to. I really didn't want to attend CSUSB but that is the only BSN program I got into, and I am really glad I got in! I thought the drive would be a pain (and it still is) but the people in my cohort are awesome and the dept is really good as well as the instructors!
So my point is, apply to as many places as possible. Nowadays the chances of getting into a program on the first try is slim (i was lucky cause I applied to so many!) and as much as you may not want an ADN, I would apply to them as back up. Rather be in a program then in none at all.
So good luck with CSULB as well. And enjoy your break from school. Once the program starts (no matter where you go) its all busy work and studying. So enjoy no school while you can!!!

Thank you very much, and I'm glad you found something to like about CSUSB, how much time do you have left? I am also applying to CSULA, but I'm a bit iffy about my chances. I think I have about a 20 on the point-scale without volunteer hours, but I am trying to volunteer at a few hospitals nearby so that i can get over 100 hours before the deadline in March. I'm curious what my chances are of getting into that school. I would rather get my BSN of course, but at this point, I am accepting the fact that I might just have to settle for the ADN programs... I have a daughter, so CSUSB isn't that great of an option for me because of distance, sitters, time... otherwise I would go and deal with the drive myself as far as CSULB goes, I am going to retake my TEAS, I still have time, and my GPA is good enough, but that TEAS score really brought my chances down Thanks again for your reponse, I hope you had a great New Years!
- 0Jan 3, '13 by DarkBluePhoenixHey there!
I have 8 out of 9 quarters left at CSUSB. So basically a little less than 3 years lol
As for CSULA, last year the lowest point value to get in was 24/30 I believe. All programs are competitive. Nowadays TEAS scores are increasing and there are way more 4.0s than ever!
So I would retake your TEAS.
Just try your best and turn in what you have. But don't forget to apply to ADN programs! And if you absolutely have to attend one, then make sure you get networking or get a hospital job while in school. That way when you graduate, you have an easy in. My hospital still hires ADN grads. A lot do not anymore, from what I hear, especially in this state. But at least you will have your RN!
Anyway, happy New Year to you as well! Hopefully you get into your top choice for 2013!

Congrats on getting into CSUSB!
Honestly it doesn't even matter which school one gets admitted to. All that matters is that we have the opportunity to get into a BSN program so that we can actually start learning about real nursing.
Which schools you applied to before?
