BHSN: Applying to Bridgeport Hosp for Fall 2013

  1. 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 great...but not too terrible!):

    TEAS - 78% (planning to re-take)
    GPA - 3.2 (currently)

    I also applied to GWCC and Southern, so hopefully I will get into one of these programs!

    I also applied to BHSN and Gateway.

    TEAS: 86.7%
    GPA: 4.0

    Anyone have any experience with either program that they are willing to share?

    Hi, long did it take you to hear back from admissions? I'm just curious how long from when you sent in your application until you received your acceptance letter. Also, did you apply to any of the other nursing programs? I know you said you have sent in your deposit for BHSN already, but I just wanted to know if you had also applied anywhere else.

    To all those who stalk this forum as much as I do, please leave a comment if you applied to Bridgeport's program. Anything will do! Even if it is just to say you are waiting to hear back, just like me. It's nice have company while we wait. So just add your thoughts. Thanks.

    Playing the waiting game but I haven't heard anything. I called to make sure they have my application. They do so everyday I check the mailbox hoping there's something there but nope.

    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! 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?

    Hi NurseKay2012,

    No...nothing yet. How were you able to check your application status on the website? I know it sounds crazy, but I am taking 2 courses this semester, and I can hardly concentrate because I am justing obsessing about when will the mail get here! And these bank holidays are killing me!!...No mail today...Nooooooooo!!!!

    Bhsn, sent a paper giving me my applicant Id and temp password. From there you can see what they have and what they don't have, and if your application is under review . I still have not heard anything yet smh. Getting aggravated!

    Wow! Ok. I haven't received anything at all from them...but I can understand your frustration. Especially if you got a letter telling you your application is in review, and then there is nothing after that. Good luck! I hope you get in, NurseKay. Is Bridgeport the only school you applied to, and are they your first choice? Bridgeport is my first choice because it is a hospital-based program, and I've heard nothing but good things about how great the instructors are. Best of luck! I hope you hear from them soon.

    I actually sent in my completed application (with EVERYTHING) the very first day the application period started in September! LOL! I was prepared! LOL!

    I got a letter in November which gave me the online access code to check my status.

    My status changed to UNDER REVIEW in January and a month later I had my acceptance letter.

    If your application was complete EARLY, they probably had a chance to review it before the influx of applications they receive at the end of the application period.

    I also applied to Gateway's program (as a backup plan) in case I didn't get into BHSN.

    And for those of you that are able to check your application status online... When they do make a decision, your status will change from "Under Review" to "Decision Letter Sent". Then you just have to wait for your letter.
