UMDNJ-part-time BSN

  1. 0
    Hello all,

    I am interested in applying for the 2013 part-time BSN program at UMDNJ. I am curious if any individuals in the all nurses community are enrolled, or are considering applying in the program. Can anyone provide feedback? Due to some financial restrictions, I will have to work full-time in a non-health related field while attending school (well, hopefully attend :-)). I am assuming that the part-time program is geared towards individuals who work a significant amount of hours per week. Thanks!

    Hey!
    i started the pt-bsn at umdnj back in 2011 ( half done and dying to graduate ) we normally have class thursdays ( starts 5:30 till w.e time but def. not too late ) sometimes fridays ( this sem we dont have it ) and clinicals are saturdays ( normally 7:30/8am - 2/3pm). There are 13 of us in the class and most of us work FT jobs ( some work 3 days 12 hours shift, some work 5 days 8 hour shift and others work more) Definitly accommodating for students to work... you just have to find the balance and time between studying, work and school. You can even have a social life! lol. I dont work fulltime but i put in between 25-30 hours at work.

    If you have any specific questions let me know!

    Thanks for the prompt response. I am curious how difficult it is to get into the program. May I ask what your GPA was? Did you volunteer? I have a 3.35 with a BA in Psychology, and my pre-req GPA is around 3.7 (unfortunately I received a C in statistics way back when). I am hoping to volunteer at a hospital sometime this summer as my healthcare experience is fairly limited. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    my gpa wasnt great lol i graduated with a 3.2 gpa with a BS in biology. My pre-reqs i dont remember the GPA exactly but i got an A in everything but Gen Chem which i got a C in but i was told during the info session if you took a higher level science they would take that instead so i guess they took my Orgo which i got a B+ in. I worked in a nursing home as a unit clerk but tbh i dont really think having health care experience in necessary since i think some of my classmates really didnt do anything healthcare related but they did have an outstanding GPAs. Volunteering may be a plus and perhaps you can even get one of them to write you a recommendation. I know clara maass, when i volunteered, they can assign you to be a "nursing volunteer" especially since your interesed in pursing a career in that field.

    I know this is an old thread but does anyone who went through the part time program at UMDNJ/Rutgers have any advice as far as getting ready for the program?? I got accepted for summer 2014 and I wanted to maybe brush up on material or do something to prepare myself for the program. Is there anything you think I should prepare myself for?? Like the teas? Any advice at all would be helpful
