NJCU FastTrack BSN Program Admission Requirements - page 5

I'm getting ready to apply to the 2011 FastTrack BSN Program at New Jersey City University. I was wondering what standards people had that were accepted to the program in the past. I know it says 3.0... Read More

    Yeah I received the email in the beginning of May. They took forever to update my information, but it's all there now. If I were you I'd just try to login to the site anyway. Your user name are as follows:

    Username: First Name Last Name
    Password: First Name Last Name

    Thank you. I am wondering why I don't see any file or information when I login to the system....I got the email just few minutes ago. lol

    Okay well since they're just updating your information now it seems, hopefully you will get an email soon that says your documents have been uploaded. Did you send your entire application at the same time?

    This Friday it will have only been three weeks. They said 4-6 weeks after the end of the deadline. I'm going to assume it will be more towards 6 weeks.

    Hi fellow nursing hopefuls,

    NJCU is at least going to take another month to evaluate applications. I spoke with the girl at the school and she told me that they were going to wait 2 weeks past May 20th to let missing documents trickle in. As of Monday of last week, she told me she had piles and piles of papers on her desk and that documents are still being uploaded to the system. Based upon this I think that we will not hear anything until at least the second or third week in July. They sound short staffed, and it is the summer. I would LOVE to know by the beginning of July but unless they get their act together I think its going to be later.

    Does anyone know about the safety of the campus in JC? Where do students park? What is a typical week schedule look like? I know it's a lot of work but I am trying to see how many days I will need to commute to Jersey City,

    Good luck all,

    Do you have any information on the questions that I had in my last post? Like the safety of the campus and schedule etc?

    No sorry. I wish. But not really sure what u mean

    I know the schedule is basically full-time (Monday-Friday 8-5 type of deal, with one day at clinicals) It all depends on what schedule you get, since it can definitely vary. But I think that's basically what it's like. I know there are other posts on this website that discuss that.

    As far as the safety in Jersey City, it's not exactly one of the safest areas in NJ, but the campus is actually really nice. When I visited for the orientation I parked at an on-site parking garage, and I felt pretty safe. I mean I wouldnt suggest walking by yourself late at night, but chances are if you make it into the program hopefully most of your classes will be during the day and also you'll have friends that you make in the program to walk with, etc. I have friends that live in JC, and although there is always the chance of your car getting broken into or getting mugged in any city, it's really not THAT bad of an area and if you're smart about it you'll be fine

    Great! Thanks for the info! I appreciate it.
    Are you waiting for admission into the program this fall or are you in the Communiversity cohort?
