    Hi guys, I decided to join your posts as I also applied for Fall 2013. 104 out of 123 doesn't sound like a bad probability. I was wondering how many point did you get? I think I have 28.
    hey Juice! Welcome to the thread!
    It doesn't sound too bad to me either. I have 29 points. I was told "you've got nothing to worry about". So...I'm going off of that and trying not to stress. If you're curious, you can read what the cut off was for past semesters by going into the previous threads. It's a lot of info to go through, but its in there somewhere!

    They used to take more. Maybe they are having filling positions? You can only have 8 students per clinical, so maybe some teachers are leaving or switching to a different semester.

    I was also thinking maybe they don't have as many professors for fall semester... I applied with 26 points... So I am of course stressing :/

    My clinical instructor is leaving after this semester and she currently teaches 3 sections (24 students). It's a shame because she's awesome! Maybe they don't have replacements? I also know of another clinical instructor that quit just before spring break!

    Lost two instructors! Oh no! I hope we are left with good instructors, as it usually makes or breaks class. How is school going for you so far, Christina? I was under the impression that we wouldnt know until mid May, so waiting until the end of April is a little more tolerable. As far as points go Juice2013, I think I had 30, if my calculations were right.

    I'm sure you will have great instructors, there are still plenty of good ones left . The semester is going great so far! I am constantly being challenged and I'm learning new things every day. I start at a new clinical facility tomorrow and I'm really excited! It is not easy but when you put the time into the work and it pays off with good grades, it's really worth it. I have had to sacrifice work and my social life, but it will pay off in the end.

    With the amount of applicants they took in, I'm sure that you will get in. I'm actually glad that they are accepting less people now. They were putting out WAY too many graduates each semester. It's also nice that the bar isn't quite so high anymore. When I first became interested in this program a few years ago, they were getting 300+ applicants and the point cutoff was between 26-28 for a few semesters. It was getting a bit too competitive and I'm glad it's turning around. I hope you all gets good news soon! The wait is tough but just wait and see, the work is even tougher!

    Yes, there are sooo many new grads and Im concerned there are a lack of jobs, but we just have to work hard and remain positive. CSN takes in a lot more students compared to NSC BSN program, which I plan to bridge into. I do know the social life will be put on hold while in school and I am totally prepared for that! Good luck in your new facility! It s very exciting indeed!

    I'm planning to bridge to NSC too! I've heard mixed things about job for new grads...but the people I've talked to personally don't seem to be having issues. So I'm super hopeful that it won't be a problem for me either. With fewer applicants over the past few semesters than in years previous as well, I think it's positive for us. My favorite nurse at my parinatologists office graduated from CSN only a year ago! (She works for one of the best docs in town!).

    I love hearing positive stories, Soxley. There is too much negativity going around about the job outlook for us. now just to wait patiently until the end of April!

    Hi, this is my very first post here
    I too applied for fall 2013 as well and I am so excited! Looks like we have to wait longer than what I thought we would... as long as we get our calls the wait is well worth it. Good luck everyone!

    You will hear this, a lot! CSN has some of the best grads around. Many of the hospitals want our graduates because we have the clinical skills needed. Everyone I know who graduated last semester all have jobs already!

    Sunshine Daisy, that is definitely sounds very promising! We all want to have jobs upon graduation!!!
