Hey everyone, my name is Nicole and I am hoping to be accepted into the Rutgers accelerated nursing program
that begins this May/June. I would love to chat with anyone who is currently in the program or who is applying for entry into the program for 2013.
Here's a little about myself..I graduated from Rutgers in 2010 with a double major in biology and nutrition (3.7 GPA), and then went on to graduate school at UMDNJ where I studied Epidemiology (4.0 GPA). I am really hoping to be accepted into the Rutgers program, but am nervous because they only accept a small cohort of students. I've also applied to Seton Hall's ABSN program which is at Georgian Court, but Rutgers is my 1st choice.
Hey! My name is Emily and I am also a Rutgers ABSN program hopeful! I will be graduating with my B.S. in public health this May, with a 3.7 gpa (right now I have a 3.691- but I will more than likely get a 4.0 this semester which will bump me up). I have completed all the pre-requisites for the program, except for microbio which I am taking now. I have taken all the pre-requisites at Rutgers as well. I have three years of part-time healthcare field experience (which I wrote in my personal statement).
Rutgers is my first choice. I have yet to apply elsewhere since I have not taken a chem lab, which most other programs require.
I am extremely nervous since I too heard that the Rutgers program is extremely competitive. I can't take the wait anymore! I just want to know if I got in. The only thing keeping me sane is reading threads from previous years of other students who were also in this situation. By the looks of the threads from previous years, decisions were made right about the last week of March/first week of April.
