I haven't found a thread for this yet, so I figured I would start one! I am applying in August, after I have my grades from my summer courses. I was wondering what stats other applicants have as well :) I still have to complete... Read More

    Hi tlsmith29,

    I'm also waiting to hear from Oakland. I'm closer to Oakland so it's a shorter commute for me. For April (San Mateo) I did inquire and the clinicals are mostly in S.F. at hospitals (the gal named a few): CPMC, San Francisco General, and Mills Penninsula. I've heard from other posters about Oakland and the hospitals are usually - John Muir, Kaiser - Walnut Creek, and Alta Bates. Someone also said San Ramon Regional. All these are good hospitals. Samuel Merritt is an affiliate of Sutter Health - which CPMC and Alta Bates are among the best in the area.

    The waiting is so hard! I've even taken to reviewing notes from anatomy and physio and writing up a notebook of condensed notes from those classes...hopefully it will keep the material fresh in my brain and give me a quick reference guide if I need it.

    I ditto the wait is hard! Going into the six month following the deadline of 9/1... Well, here's to hoping we all receive (good) acceptance news for SMU ABSN - Oakland in the next few weeks.

    We could hear back as early as next week, since they said decisions come mid to late February. I am getting antsy.

    Did anyone also apply to SMU's entry level master's programs? FNP or CM? I applied to their CM program as well (for Fall 2013) and I just got invited to an interview!! Anyways, I just figured I'd hear from the ABSN program (considering it starts earlier) first...I'm still crossing my fingers and good luck to you all!!
