Seton Hall Accel BSN--Still Viable??

  1. 0
    I recently heard that Seton Hall University (South Orange, NJ) is "closing" its Accelerated BSN Program to new admissions, eg: that the last Accel Class it admitted was this past September, 2007....and that no new students were being accepted to its Accel Program after that. Does anyone know if this is true?.....or can you confirm it?

    And if so, do you know why they are not taking new students? I had heard it was due to its dismally low scores on NCLEX, and that the program at Seton Hall was very disorganized?

    I understand they will still have their regular 4-year BSN program, but this change only affects its Accel BSN.

    I dont think this is true. I recently applied for the fall 08 accelerated nursing and have been in contact with the admissions department trying to verify if they received my transcripts. I also spoke with the director -asking her questions about the program. She did not say that they were not accepting students. What you heard probably was a rumor. However, I do need to look at the passing rate of the students from that school. That will have an effect on my choice of nursing school

    I don't know anything about the accelerated program but I'm in the 4 year bsn.

    About the passing rate for the NCLEX, according to their website it says 97% of students pass. I'm sure they take into count both accelerated and 4 year students.

    ^I'm only a second semester freshman. For my nursing classes, the professors I've had have been pretty good..I can't complain.


    I can't speak for much considering I'm only taking my second nursing theory course, but the professors I've had are pretty good.

    That would be news to me. There is a meeting for prospective accel. students this month.

    What day and time is the meeting? Is it going to be in South Orange or Georgian Court. I went on their website and did not see anything about it

    See if you can find out anything about the professors on www.ratemyprofessors.com I havent looked at Seton Hall specifically but I used to use this site when registering for non nursing classes. I hope that it helps.

    The session was going to be held at Georgian Court but I don't see it posted now - here is the website and you can call. http://nursing.shu.edu/accelerated.htm

    If you want to know what professors we had, pm me.

    I am in the acc program right now. It really depends on which professors you get but as accelerated students we don't get to choose who we want. We've had some great professors and some really bad ones. Administration wise, it is HIGHLY disorganized. We were supposed to register for our summer classes today and half the class didn't know about it. It was mayhem.
