UMDNJ Accelerated Nursing 2010 adivice

  1. 0 I am enrolled to start in UMDNJ's accelerated nursing program in January of 2010. I was wondering if there are recent students from that campus that could recommend ways to prepare for the fisrt session. Also, if anyone is interested in selling thier books if the editions stay current, I would be very happy to speak with you.

    I started a thread about anyone who is in the program as I will be applying next year for Fall 2010 and wanted to hear some advice. I'll be applying for the Newark campus. I may come back to you in a few months to hear of your experience.

    Hi Erin,

    Love your name I am starting at the stratford campus next month as well. I was looking for the same advice you were and the best I got was to brush up on Med terminology and try to be strong in Anatomy and Physiology since Patho is suppossed to be the most time consuming class of the first term. Having a good foundation in A&P couldnt hurt. I am spending this month flipping back through my 400 lb A&P text. (Ug!) Orientation is next week, look forward to meeting you!

    Hi,
    I just got my acceptance letter for Spring 2010 Stratford campus...sooo excited. Do you know when exactly classes are about to start? I'm so unprepared, I didn't expect this at all. Also, how are you planning to pay for it? I'm a little bit concern about financial aid...is it even possible to get everything together in less than a month?

    Their administration is horrible. They lost my documents and can't review my application. I found out this information one month of constantly calling them and writing emails regarding my status, which got ignored. I had to finally talk to someone else, who admitted this info to me today. All I got was a "sorry". I sent my application since June.

    Hi, I applied to umdnj accelerated nursing program and I will really appreciate it if someone kindly tell me which campus is better as far as safety, how far you drive to clinical, and the program in general. Is the program doable? How intense is it? Which campus offers a lot of clinical sites? Thank you very much.

    I have not been to Stratford. But, Newark lol, I'm always in the library and feel pretty safe in there. I've signed up for the Alerts via text and it's the usual shooting, attempted robberies. No UMDNJ students or personnel has been hurt. You're only there for 15 months, just walk in groups if you're going to hang out late.

    Yes, the program is intense, but doable. First semester, you don't chose clinical sites. It's usually up to 1 hour. The Stratford and Newark campus has the exact same curriculum.

But don't be afraid I don't know ur faith but girl pray and ask ur Higher Power to cover u and He'll do just that.

    Thank you so much @glad2basn. Could you please also tell me the passing grade in the program? I spoke to one of the advisers and she told me the passing grade is 80 which is a B. However, if you get two c's, you get kicked out of the program but I thought the passing grade is a C+ so I don't know where the B is coming from. Could you please help me understand it better? Thank you so much

    Hey Quannie,

    thanks for the heads up. I grew up in the Bronx but it seems like Newark has the title of craziness . But anyways, I myself have not yet started the program. However, I have a friend who is in the program and she said it's very doable yet intense. It's a lot of presentations to back you up with your exam grades. Classes are from 8:30 to 5 I believe she said. But a bit disorganize though. I'm a bit shaky about their passing grade though, my friend told me a C+ but an adviser told me is a B but if I get the accurate answer, will definitely let you know. Good luck
