Hope everyone is having a fabulous 2012. I know it is early but I am curious to see if there is anyone else on the site planning on applying to the Rutgers ABSN program. I plan to start gathering my transcript requests by the end of this month so I can apply as early as possible. Some questions that went unanswered at the October Info Session:
-Does anyone know when the application opens? And where we put which school (Newark or New Brunswick) we'd prefer?
-What specific hospitals does the New Brunswick program use? And for what specialties?
And a few questions about everyone else:
-Where are you from? Which school are you applying to?
-GPA? Prereq grades?
-Anything else about yourself or why Rutgers Nursing?
I'm from Hunterdon County, I plan to apply to New Brunswick (it is closer and I'd like to see a variety of hospitals). My undergrad GPA is 3.6 in PoliSci and Criminal Justice. So far I have a 4.0 in all my prereqs (only have Chem and Devel Psych left!). I want to be a Rutgers nursing student because of the rigor, challenge and prestige of the program. I want to be a nurse because as a CNA I love my job and I want to expand the possibilities!
