    Hi Lakerfan,

    I am planning to apply to SFSU this fall, for the BSN program. I've got a 3.8 GPA (for pre-reqs) and a 94 on my TEAS. So many people seem to be applying this year; I'm a little nervous about the competition. I'm debating about re-taking Chem in order to get my GPA topped up. How about you?

    Also, I volunteer in a clinic. By application time, I will have done that for about 8 months. I don't otherwise have much healthcare experience.

    Is anyone else out there planning to apply? It would be great to help each other along the process or at least compare notes.

    That's awesome. You got a great GPA and TEAS score. As of right now, my overall GPA is 3.78 and my prereq GPA is 3.74. I still need to take anatomy, so hopefully I can crash it this semester. On my TEAS I got a 83.3%, but I'm taking it again so I can boost it up. I'm also volunteering at two different hospitals in the ER and at a food bank. So by application time, I'll have at least a total of 300 hours or more volunteering at these places.

    But yea, I feel like a lot of people are applying to the program this year! Especially a lot of people who are starting their 4th year at SFSU and some people who are starting their 3rd year.

    I'm sure this thread will become more popular as the application deadline gets closer.

    Wow, two hospital ERs! That's great. How did you swing that? It seems hard to get volunteer positions with meaningful patient contact (as opposed to just filing medical records, for example).

    I guess it takes calling quite a few hospitals to see what kind of volunteer positions they offer. are you applying anywhere else?

    Yes, I'll be applying to the UCSF MEPN (I have a B.A. in Biology), as well as CSU EB and CSU Sac. I amy also apply to Sonoma State but their application isn't due until 2013 (Jan or Feb) so there's time to decide that. I definitely want to stay in-state. How about you?

    Also, any one else please jump in with us anytime!

    I also plan on applying this year to SFSU as well.

    I'm very nervous though because I know how competitive it is
    I have a 3.5 GPA and I'm currently taking my microbiology and anatomy class and next semester taking physiology.
    I am also volunteering at a hospital but I only have 100 hours. You guys seem to have a lot more which makes me think I should volunteer more hours or at a different place?
    I am also taking my TEAS for the first time at the end of next month.

    Good luck with that TEAS, LaSarah.

    Like you, I will have about 100 hours of healthcare work. More would be great, I'm sure, but at least you've got that.

    Hi folks,

    I have just started the application process. Does anyone know how long it takes to get your SF State ID#?

    The Nursing Program asks for it on the application form. I applied for SFSU on CSUmentor but I don't yet have an ID# that I see. They say they are holding applications until after the election but, by that time, it will be a little late to apply. I guess there will still be time but it will be crunched.

    Any advice is welcome.

    have also applied and wondering about the SF ID number for the nursing app. Have you received yours yet?

    LeSarah, how did your TEAS go?

    How is everyone's application process so far?

    Hey everyone,

    I am applying for Fall 2013 Admission and here are my stats:

    Overall GPA: 3.72, Prerequisite GPA: 3.64, TEAS V: 80 (Advanced) and 100 hours of volunteer experience in an ER. I am also EMT-B certified, and Speak English and Spanish. What are my chances?

    I am also applying to SJSU, CSUEB, Dominican University, and Seattle University.

    Hi, everyone...
    My chances don't look quite as outstanding as the rest of you...

    For Fall 2013 admission, I'm applying with:

    Overall GPA: 3.52, Prereq GPA: 3.48 (Blame Chem), with Anatomy in progress, and Physio in the spring.
    Snagged 92% on the TEAS V, a letter from Seton Medical Center for volunteering (been there since January) & I'm fluent in Japanese.

    Hopefully I'll get a decent spot on the waitlist?
