SDSU Fall 2012 admission hopefuls - Page 26Register Today!
- Apr 27, '12 by naniinasciQuote from CorianderI'm graduating this May, but I am looking forward to continuing my relationship with the school and the nursing student organization which has become so important to me.
Pharmacology will be a class in your second semester, so don't worry about having to get it out of the way. I'm pretty sure I'm allowed to give you the curriculum here (if you don't already know it.)
Fundamentals of Nursing (Med-Surg 1)
Cultural and Mental Health
Leadership and Management
Those are just the base nursing classes. You will, of course, have your General Education classes to fit in there, but they're easy to schedule, and some are even online.
Nice!!!! Thank you!!!
- Apr 27, '12 by naniinasciSDSU sent some rejection emails today (my husband also applied to SDSU and he just got one ). So if any one you have not received either an admission or a rejection letter yet, it probably means that you are an alternate. I wish best of luck for all of you!!
- Apr 27, '12 by Rachel130aI got in! I was so happy I started crying and I never do that!
My stats were: 87.3% TEAS, 4.0 cum GPA, 4.0 prereq GPA, over 1000 hours LVN experience.
87/90 points. Waiting for acceptance has been enough to add a few more gray hairs to my head!
Congrats to all my future classmates! Can't wait to meet you all!
- Apr 28, '12 by irondonutCongrats to those who have received the acceptance letter! Does anyone know what needs to be done before classes start? For those who want to get a head start.

- Apr 28, '12 by naniinasciQuote from csuarez99Oh sorry to hear that!!! :-(I just got rejected
Did they give you the opportunity to "roll" your application to the spring semester?
- Apr 28, '12 by Distraught_ConcernedI didn't get in either... and SDSU was the only school I applied to :/. I wasn't sure HOW to apply to other schools... I don't think I am getting into SDSU...EVER. I've got a total of 60 or so points. Since we can't fix our grades if they're above a C, I'm screwed.
Can you guys help me on the application processes involved with sending your application to multiple schools? I wasn't sure HOW exactly.. I had so many questions. What credits were applicable? Did you need to be accepted first? I'm so depressed and confused right now.
Is there really anything I can do... aside from just give up and go to community college? SDSU's course forgiveness policy doesn't allow me to make up any of my grades.... Even if I participated in the 1000+ hours of work experience, I'd still have ~ 65. I feel like I've utterly failed at everything.Last edit by Distraught_Concerned on Apr 28, '12
- Apr 28, '12 by CorianderFor those of you who didn't make it in this time, DON'T GIVE UP!!!! I didn't make it my first application, either! Roll it over and see what happens next time.
If you were accepted into the university but not the nursing program, take your General Education classes now and get them out of the way. If you weren't accepted into the university, PLEASE check out the local community colleges. You can figure out which classes can equal the general education classes at SDSU and get them out of the way there (often for MUCH less money!)
I went to community college for 3 years and really had a great experience. I learned two years in that I wanted to go into nursing, so spent a little more time preparing for that application. Take Spanish classes or another language if you don't speak one already... that will also give you a bit of a boost. Start volunteering or find a nursing assistant position.
If your heart is set on nursing, follow your heart. Know that you will get there. Create a vision board with nursing stuff on it (I did this!) so you can look at it every day and know that you WILL be a nurse!!! On my vision board, I had a picture of my head on someone else who was in scrubs (lol), pictures of the BSN pin, the RN pin, and also a picture of the school of nursing. I hung that board in my bathroom where I could see it every day, multiple times a day.
Now I have to make one with finding a job on it.
In all seriousness, you can do this. You WILL do this. You will all go on and be incredible nurses. I know it!!!!
- Apr 28, '12 by RNY2@coriander- thank you for being so motivational and helpful! I have a concern though... I feel like most of the information I learned in the prerequisite classes I have forgotten. What should I do to prepare for the program, what information is really vital?
- Apr 28, '12 by CorianderRNY2, I think physiology was the most important. It carries over into almost every class that you will have. If you have your notes from that class, you can review them and probably have an easier job.
Also, start doing drug calculations. You can find lots of them online.
