Wayne State ABSN Transfer Student Admissions

  1. 0
    Hello all!

    Has anyone been accepted to Wayne State's accelerated BSN program without having taken a single prerequisite there?

    It's my understanding that WSU gives preferential status to students who have completed prerequisites there. Just wondering if there are more than enough qualified in-house, existing-student applicants to fill the ABSN program spots without having to select (complete/total) transfer students.

    Thanks in advance!

    I was wondering the same question. I'm interested in applying but i'm from out of state, and i'm wondering what the chances are of OOS students getting in?

    Wayne State bases their admissions solely on GPA and a majority of students accepted to the program were non-wayne state students. I believe most Wayne students go the traditional route. That being said, they do give first preference to those who take all pre-reqs at Wayne followed by those who take all the science courses there. Just be aware that Wayne focuses only on grades and to get in, you will need mostly A's and a few B's / A-'s. Also, they do not accept students who retake courses so keep that in mind. They started to do interviews last year but this was mostly a formality and does not weigh heavily on admission. I have friends who had 3.9 from community colleges not get in so there appears to be no rhyme or reason on how to get in. Its highly competitive if not somewhat political, Good luck to all of you. I would recommend going to an informational meeting but everything about the program can be found online. Expect only 48 to get accepted out of 300-400 applicants. It appears everyone is trying to get into nursing and Wayne is one of the best schools in Michigan.

    Hello everyone, have you heard about the new changes WSU has implemented, prior to Fall 2014? Well I just attended one of their CD2 information meeting (my second) which informed the applicants that their will no longer be any interviews, and no more 24 hours pre-req for BSN shadowing will be required. The reasons they gave...'It was very difficult for the applicants to get permission to shadowing BSN for safety and legal privacy issues'. Wow... Now they change that pre-req rule....after I searched for over 3 months and finally got 40 hours of BSN shadowing...and especially after I was told repeatedly...No No No! I guess the shadowing was not wasted...because. boy have things changed...so much is computerized now...compared to now and then!

    Now comes the dreaded long, long, long wait until June 30, 2014 for an acceptance notification on Con. That wait is going to be torture for me...just waiting...because I am so happy that all my pre-reqs are done and my application process is complete...now comes the wait. How about you? I planned on utilizing that time to go over NCLEX questions.

    How about you...do you still have pre-reqs to complete? Have you applied to other schools? If so, which school do you think is the best for you? Good luck everyone. let's keep in touch and support one another. By the way I do not have face book so I can't join you there. let's talk for our future!
