    Hey!

    I am thinking about applying to UNM, depending on how things with other schools work out. I recently moved to ABQ from Wisconsin, and have been taking science pre-reqs (already have my Bachelor's in Psychology). Are you thinking of applying to the program? What have you heard about it? I was surprised at how many pre-reqs they require (like pharmacology, patho 1 and 2). Theoretically I could be ready to start nursing school Summer of Fall 2010, depending on the school's requirements, but for UNM I would not be ready until Spring 2011, and I'm not sure I want to wait that long. I am keeping my options open and will probably apply to different schools across the U.S., although I would prefer to stay here as I know people. It gets so confusing! What are your plans? If you search these forums there are quite a few other topics on UNM.

    Cool...Thanks a lot.... Yeah i noticed the load of pre-reqs...but i think it is good....i looked up the schedule and i guess clinicals start in the first semester, so it reduces the course load a lot.....i am thinking of applying for spring 2010.....i am taking A&P1, patho, stats and spanish in the spring then in the fall....the remaining 12 credits.....

    Rimzy! You're not alone, but there aren't many of us on here, either! I'm a NM resident, just graduate in May from a college in TN, currently attending UNM for the remainder of my pre-reqs. I applied for the FEB 15 deadline for 2nd degree BSN at UNM CON. Have you applied/ been accepted at UNM yet? Love to hear from you!

    I did some of my pre-reqs at UNM, but I was daunted by the competitive entry to the BSN program. I'm planning on going back for the RN-BSN bridge if I'm still in this town a couple years from now.

I have not yet applied, i am actually applying this summer for the Spring 2011 semester, i will be done with all my pre-reqs, patho,pharm the whole deal in the fall of 2010.... It is nice to meet you too.....:

    Hi All:

    I am currently a student in the BSN program at UNM...in fact, I will be starting my last semester in the program tomorrow! Let me know if you have any questions or need any information. Best of luck.

    woot! Christmas came early this year! I'm sure we'd both love to hear everything you've got! Advice on the admissions process, pros and cons of the program, what you wish you had known or done before starting... I am a second-degree student. My app is in already, so once I get them my transcripts, my app should be complete. I had a chat with one of my profs last semester about the application process, and she mentioned that since they raised the minimum GPA requirement from 2.5 to 3.0 (science and cumulative), they have far fewer applicants, and it's been a bit easier to get in if you meet these requirements. I think she guesstimated about 48 out of 70 applicants were admitted for Spring 2010? I'm hoping this is the case...previously I heard that UNM had approximately 200+ applicants each cycle for maybe 35-40 spots. I was considering making an appointment with the advisement office to see what they can tell me about the current stats for applicants and whatnot. Right now, I've got a 3.1 science GPA, 3.22 cumulative from my alma mater, 3.66 for UNM....I've GPA's coming out my ears! I'm curious to know if UNM pays more attention to your science GPA for their specified prereq's (I've got 3.61 average from micro, A&P I & II, Patho I, and Pharm).

    Sorry to dump all of this on you! I'm excited to hear what you have to share with us.
