Hello everyone, I'm new to the site and I was wondering if there are any fellow CSN RN Spring '13 hopefuls out there. I just turned in my application today and I would love to get to know some of my potential classmates... Read More

    You will need them done by the time you have your meeting with your advisor, which is a few weeks before classes start. You have to have a clinical ticket before you can go to clinical, and that requires CPR, background check, drug screen, immunizations, proof of health insurance, step 2 TB test. The only thing you won't have will be your last HepB shot if you don't already have the series, but you will need it before 2nd semester starts!
    I had blood titers done showing my immunity to everything including Hep B...do you think that will suffice? Hopefully all I will need to get is the 2 step TB. I had my TdaP done this year so I'm ok with that...ahhhh I'm so anxious!!! Last year the Spring '12 class found out Oct 19 so I'm hoping we might get lucky and hear that soon too! I don't think I can handle the stress of not knowing any longer!

    Hi everyone,
    I started getting nervous about not hearing from the school so i started looking around for forums and happened upon this one. Thank you so much for starting it and all the information posted on it. I applied with 29 points so it sounds like i should be good but i will drive myself crazy until i get the call. However i wont be as crazy since i know there was such a low number of applicants. I really hope they start making those calls soon. I also hope they dont alter the number of students allowed in. As long as the applicants pre-reqs are completed i dont think it would be fair decide to allow less students into the program but that is just my opinion.
    For anyone who is already in the program i was wondering about the immunizations. When do we have to have them all completed by? Is it the first day of class or do we have some extra time?
    I was paranoid (or shall I say my paranoia began and never ended) over the summer about turning in my application too early and I stumbled upon this site and I've been hooked ever since. I check for new info here at least twice a day I too am going crazy waiting for "the call". Every time I hear my phone ring, I panic! I'm going nuts over this!

    I agree, it won't be very fair if some people don't get in even though they have all of their pre-reqs done. I guess that would be their way of "saving money" but it would suck for us though....

    Good luck to you all! I almost went csn for nursing but life happened and then we moved to Colorado. It's a good school though, I took lots of pre reqs there. Hang in there. The wait is tough, but oh so worth it! I'm halfway through first semester here at CMU and its a blast! Learning about nursing is amazing.

    The wait is so tough! Reading through prior posts it looks they call on Wednesdays... I doubt we will get a call tomorrow, but I probably won't be far from the phone. We are coming into the home stretch.

    Nothing is for certain and therefore, you have a good reason to be anxious. I mean this for all students and not just you. But the great thing is that there is only a few more weeks before they start calling the students. Keep your fingers crossed. Oh the shots, you will be having a new student orientation and then they tell you all that you need. The chances are that you have already had your shots if you went to school in the US, so you gotta track down your shot records. Some shots are 3 series of shots spread out throughout a 6 month period so they just want to see that you started those. You will have to sign up for CPR. This process takes a while. When I did it the first time, I applied for fall so I had all summer to do everything. I think timing will be more important this time since we find out and there is only 2.5 months in between and lots of holidays with it. Good luck!!

    That is what I had done the first time I got in. That is exactly what you will need.

    I was told by the limited entry office that October 10th is the last day for late entries for the Spring 2013 term. They extended it because of the low amount of applicants for this term.

    For those whose health plan does not cover immunizations past 18 years old, The Health District is cheaper than Walgreen's. about a third cheaper.

    I wonder how they got the word out on that? There is nothing that I can see (I may be overlooking it) on the website about extensions. The advisement sheet still lists September 1st as the deadline. The new deadline could significantly increase the amount of applicants. People could have been taking the TEAS for an additional 6 weeks after the initial deadline and still be eligible to apply for the program. Thanks for the update!
