Hi All, I thought I would start a new topic for those of us who are planning to apply to BHSN's Nursing program for the Fall 2013. I will get things started with my stats (which aren't... Read More
0Feb 20, '13 by MR1970Oops, made a mistake! My status changed in December to "Under Review" and I got my acceptance letter on January 18th.

Thanks for the info. I will wait for my letter to come....hopefully soon! Congrats again on getting in. I'm still 'Well Jeal' as the Brits say!!
0Feb 21, '13 by MR1970Good luck to all. Someone in my AP2 class just got her letter the other day, so they are moving along getting those letters out.
0Feb 23, '13 by Nurse2bKay2012Thanks MarcusPaxton,
That was very informative, and it made me feel a little bit better. I am still waiting, but my status has said "under review", since JAN 25TH. Iam starting to grow inpatient lol.
Rosemary's_Baby, when did you apply?
I also applied to the connecticut community colleges and to springfield. (fingers-crossed)
0Feb 23, '13 by MR1970Hey NurseKay2012, you should be hearing shortly. Remember, they get the majority of the applications the last week of the application period. So I am sure they are SUPER busy reviewing.
How do you feel your application package will do? Are you happy with all your items, GPA, TEAS score, etc?
0Feb 24, '13 by WannaBNurse23So I recieved my application ID, & temporary password, I kept putting it in the website and it said "invalid ID or password" after 3 tries they lock you out so I went under "forgot user ID or password" I put in my email & they sent me the user name and password to that email. It turned out the paper that they sent me was missing a digit! So I used what they sent to my email & it work. "Application under review". So keep an eye out for the wrong information.
0Feb 25, '13 by WannaBNurse23Quote from JaRoJoCTYes I applied to NVCC. Waiting for anything from them too.Hi WannaBNurse23,
Welcome! I know what you mean about checking the mailbox! I literally stalk my mail lady! Last week...I met her on the sidewalk!....in front of my neighbors house!!! I couldn't wait for her to get to my front door. Is that pathetic or what? Have you applied to any other programs, if you don't mind me asking?
0Feb 25, '13 by Nurse2bKay2012Hey MarcusPaxton,
I think my application package is ok lol. My gpa is 3.8, but my teas score wasn't that good I only got a 78. My references are really strong and I am already a health care professional working as a Respiratory therapist. Decided to go back for nursing ( I want to be an APRN). Soooo hopefully I will get in, my application still under review. Does it change once your letter is sent out?
0Feb 25, '13 by JaRoJoCTMarcusPaxton:
Wow! You got in there pretty early! I wish I had done that also...then I wouldn't be kicking myself right now!
I sent in my application on Jan. 22nd...so it hasn't been that long now that I think about it! I don't think they have one of my college transcripts, I'm just realizing, bcuz I also applied to Southern and they sent me a letter on Friday saying they are still waiting for the transcript...and I sent a request to that college asking them to sent an official transcript to both BHSN and Southern at the same time! So I will just keep waiting. I hope you get in to your school of first choice! Good luck!

You have great stats and a great resume...so you should be fine! My stats aren't great, and now I'm really worried. You should be just fine!

Hi, i also applied to NCC to both their Nursing and Respiratory care program as a backup. How do you like being a Respiratory therapist? Was the program hard?
0Feb 25, '13 by Nurse2bKay2012Thanks JaRoJoCT!!!, I hope so tooo ! Fingers still crossed xxxxx
You will do fine!!! Don't worry about it
Sofia Hines: I love being a Respiratory therapist!! It's an awesome profession and the money is really good! But after working In the field for a few years, I fell in love with Advance practice registered nursing(aprn). I could do a bridge program Rt to RN but I can't do online classes . So I have to do it the looooooong way! Lol
I also wish everyone luck !!!
