    Hello bethieanne. I have not created such a group. Would you like to create one? Let me know as I need to be involved somehow with any sites that use the UMDNJ-SN logo.
    If you'd be willing to start one, that would be great! I think it could be a good tool to network with other classmates.

    Thanks.

    Can someone tell me how to financially surviuve UMDNJ's accelerated BSN program? I heard that they will allot you money for rent and utilites, is this correct? I have looked up the cost of attendance and was told that most students have to budget themselves. Do they ask for documentation if you are requesting money for rent? What if you share your apartment with someone who is on the lease but not at the same school, do they look into all of this? Thanks for whatever information you may have.

    you have to provide documentation for everything
    either you work part time, have a hubby or live at home is how to survive

    Hi,

    Make sure you keep calling them, I have there number saved. I had an issue where I applied super early in June 2010 (Stratford Campus) for Summer of 2011. I was accepted for Spring of 2011! I had to figure that out and call several people to get switched to Summer of 2011 because I didn't want to go in the Spring. What campus are you going to? I can give you some contact information if you want to keep up with things. Let me know

    dear goodtobenurse,

    our enrollment services department policy is that accepted students are mailed a packet of information within 3 business days of receiving your deposit. please send me a private message with your contact information so that we can investigate your case.

    at umdnj-sn our goal is continual improvement of our service to future and current students as well as alumni.

    dear kittyinnj;

    thanks for your reply. yes, at umdnj we continually emphasize the need for a strong support system to excel in the accelerated bsn program. the center for academic success is ramping up its efforts in this area with initiatives like the peer mentoring program and we encourage students to get involved.

    however, i must take issue with your "we're just nursing students" statement, even though you meant it as a joke. if nurses/nursing students don't stop comparing themselves negatively to physicians (or medical students), how will we effectively combat negative images of nurses in the media and in the workplace?

    you might want to check out this website, which offer news and resources aimed at improving the public image of the nursing profession: http://www.truthaboutnursing.org/

    good luck with your studies and please feel free to stop by and visit me any time. i am on the newark campus in the dean's suite (11th floor).

    best regards,

    lynn mcfarlane
