Oh my fellow nurses and nurses-to-be, this has been an agonizing five months of awaiting a decision from Rutgers Nursing to let me know if they will accept me into their undergrad nursing program.
By June 30 I should have their final decision.
I need some insight and perspective from my peers.
I was turned away last year as an applicant who was wishing to transfer from a community college, with some credits from a major university. I had a 3.85 out of a 4.0 GPA and an amazing essay.
I entered into Rutgers School of Arts and Sciences to complete my Psychology degree and planned on applying to accelerated programs this year, however, this past February, made the decision to reapply to the traditional track just in the case that they would reconsider me since I had invested a year at Rutgers by then.
I now have a 3.79 GPA, have made the Dean's list both semesters, won an Academic Excellence Award my first semester (had a 4.0), and have completed Pathophys, and Organic Biochem at RU by this past Spring.
Applications for school-to-school transfers were due by June 30, however I submitted mine on February 1.
My friends have been notified already that they were not accepted
and put in their applications two months after I did.
Since applying, I began volunteering for the local EMS and have begun on my EMT certifications and clinicals, which I notified admissions of, so that they knew how serious I am, and so that they are aware that I am being trained in emergency care and taking vitals, etc....
I need to know where you all think I stand-- it's been a loooooooooooong road of fulfilling geneds and applying...the wait is killin me!--Five days until I hear back. Do you think that I am a definite "no", and they are waiting to release an email to me, a "maybe" because there is no word yet, or a "yes".
