    Greetings prospective and current BSN students at UMDNJ-SN.

    Since I know you folks are focused on getting in school and getting through our program, I thought you might enjoy seeing some photos of UMDNJ's first stand-alone Nursing Pinning Ceremony, held Dec. 16, 2010 for the accelerated BSN students graduating January 2011.

    You can VIEW THE PHOTOS HERE>>Pinning Ceremony, UMDNJ-School of Nursing, Newark Campus, Dec. 16, 2010 - a set on Flickr

    We typically hold our pinning ceremonies as part of Convocation. Not sure how we will do the next one, but rest assured it will be an exciting event.

    Hey you guys!
    im applying for either the summer or fall of 2011 umdnj absn program.. i know the deadline for the summer is march 1st and im pretty much done with my application im just waiting for my recommendation letters to finish.. but god knows how long that would take ... took one of them 3 weeks the last school i applied to.. but she is my boss and would give me a strong recommendation so i cant switch her lol. My question is am i cutting it too close? should i just wait till march 2nd and send in my application for fall? cause i personally feel like i am cutting it close and my application wont even be considered since i applied to late? lol what do you guys think?

    Hi,

    You can actually send in everything now and have the recommendation letters pending, send them in later. I too had issues with that so I had all
    The letters sent to me sealed and I mailed them in, try to give everyone a two week time span, that's ample time. If it really becomes an issue find two other people as a back up whom you know will write your letters in a timely fashion.


    Best of luck,

    Congratulations! Good luck to you, I am going to the Stratford Campus in the Summer of 2011, I am thrilled. I wish you well, it's not easy but again I will add ( I've stated this in the past) the program is do-able. Again congratulations!

    Thanks, same to you, and nice to meet you

    I haven't done anything yet, just received my acceptence letter yesterday and haven't had a chance to go over everything. Looks like I have to submit the medical stuff and background check first. It's just a relief to get in after preparing for nearly a year.

    Is there more info on the TEAS in the packet following the inital one that I have?

    Did you call to confirm a date for the TEAS test?
