    Looks like it was some kind of error on sf gateway- I'm so relieved! I will b for sure attending the sequoia program. Btw, I guess it happened to a couple people, so as long as you got an acceptance email you should be fine

    On a side note does anyone know if the program is 4 semesters now or 5 still? It seems like they are changing the program a little bit. I'm still a little confused on how much the whole program will cost since we are extended learning people.

    Apparently in the last SFSU/Sequoia information meeting, they informed the new curriculum will also be 4 semesters effective in Fall 2013.

    I was also wondering about the overall tuition costs for the program? how much much are we expected to spend in the whole program now that it is only 4 semesters?

    I too got in! Looking forward to meeting you all come fall
    As for the immunizations, that was something that was supposed to be submitted as part of the nursing application (at least that's how I did mine)- I do believe it is also a requirement for SFSU regardless if you are applying to the nursing program.
    Does anyone know when the orientation is or how much the program will cost for all 4 semesters?

    Anyone know how to or interested in making a Facebook group for our Sequoia/SFSU class? let me know- i think you have to have at least 2 people to create the group.

    That is a great idea!

    I would love to join - or if you want start - a Facebook group for our cohort.

    I can setup the Facebook page this afternoon and share the link on this thread.

    Hi Everyone,

    So, I have just created a Facebook group for our class.
    Look for SFSU/Sequoia Nursing - Cohort 10.

    If you have been admitted and are intending to enroll for this coming fall please join, so we can keep the conversation going!

    Hi all,
    I am one of the applicants who got into both SMU ABSN and Sequoia BSN programs. I am now weighing both and I am in a situation to choose one. Any pointers or tips will help me. Does anyone know if there is a guaranteed job in Sequoia Hospital if you do Sequoia program, because we signed a contract saying that we, applicants will work in Sequoia Hospital for 2 years after graduation?
    Thanks in advance,
    Sue

    At the info session I attended the director said Sequoia hired 17 of their grads last year, but some years they only hire a few. I think it's based on whatever Sequoia's needs are at the time. So there are no guarantees, but given the new grad market around here it's nice to have even the possibility of a job at graduation.

    Congrats on getting in to both programs! That's a tough decision.

    Hi Space Monster,

    17 jobs is not bad. It is good news. I thought SMU was the best choice. But now Sequoia BSN in Canada College sounds way too good to be true. Get to finish BSN degree in 4 semesters, costs only 20K all together for 4 semesters, and there might be a job availability. Am I wrong or missing something here? I want to make sure that I got everything straight with Sequoia program before saying no to SMU ABSN program that will be done in a year, but will cost me around $65K.

    Thanks,
    Sue
