    Hello everyone. I've also applied for the Spring 2013 class, and I've heard about application numbers coming in at somewhere north of 600 in past semesters, so I dropped into the Division Office last week to see if they had a final count. I was told that 157 students applied for this class. This is good news for everyone because it means nearly 1:2 applicants should be accepted this time as opposed to 1:10. Good luck to all who have applied!

    That's good to know. I also heard that the applications were light for Spring 2013.

    Does anyone happen to know if the short summer classes count towards this Spring 2013 application period? The grades for Lifecycle 2 came out last week so I would think that they would be considered since the class is completed and letters don't come out until late September. I had 64pts before this summer class, but now I should have 67. Since applications are less, I pray that I have a chance. Thanks for your input.

    Hey guys,

    I also applied to Spring 2013 and am waiting for the results late September! Time is going by so slowly!!

    So I don't know if this will be helpful, maybe for someone in the future.

    I talked to the nursing counselor before applying and he said that about 80 pts is the maximum. He said if you are above 70 points, you are likely to get in. He said if youre in the high sixties, you have a fairly good chance. Finally, if youre in the lower sixties, you have a chance, but that is borderline of getting in or not.

    Hope it helped. CROSS FINGERS we all get in >.<

    ***ps. DOes anyone know, or know of someone who graduated from ADN program? How easy/difficult was it for a RN with ADN instead of BSN to get a job? That is my concern, since its so difficult getting into a BSN program.

    Rumor? has it that almost all CSUs are not accepting ANYMORE transfers.. in all majors.. ahhhh

    There are a bunch of schools that have a ADN to BSN program so its acutally alot easier to transition from an ADN to BSN then going staight to a BSN.. while having a BSN is advantagous in getting a Nursing job, you can still get hired with an ADN.

    try to get a job at a hospital now so youll have your foot in the door, people who work at a hospital currently have a huge huge huge advantage in getting a job right out of nursing school

    i also applied so we will see, i dont know what my points are.. but i think they are in the 50-60 range... who knows we will see!

    thanks. its assuring to know that ADN to BSN route is easier to get into than straight to BSN. I am volunteering as a clinical care extender. Hopefully that might help me in some way.

    Also, do any of you know if the saddleback nursing program offers stethoscope as part of the material? or do we have to buy our own? I was talking to some nursing students and some said that it was given to them by the nursing program/school and some said they had to purchase on their own. I am wondering because I might be able to get one very cheap, but don't want to pay for it if I was going to be given one ffrom the nursing program.

    when i went to the EMT program at saddleback they gave a stethsocope.. the one they gave me was a cheap crappy one (and i hate the ones with the double tubes, they annoy the crap out of me) im assuming they do for nursing but i wouldnt think its the best quality so i think youd be better off buying one thats a good quality one

    I'm so excited for the letters to come out! I wonder if they will send them out early. I'm also thinking that since there were less applications that they will accept a wider range of students points wise.

    I stopped by the nursing office and they said they weren't even close to ready! >.<

    Only inform by mail, no email.. for some reason I thought I read that they would send an email out as well.

    Good luck!
