- 0Jun 30, '12 by jess3306Quote from JLB1215I just applied to Adelphis nursing program. I had a C in A & P I which is not acceptable for their program so I re-took the class and got a B. I have a 3.36 GPA and passed the TEAS. I didnt do that well but I passed all sections. When I spoke to them at Adelphi they said I have a very good chance of getting in and not to worry. I am just so nervous! Anyone else apply with a similar situation and get into their program?? I really hope I get in!
I actually just got accepted yesterday! =] for the fall 2012. they took a really long time to get back to me as well. I applied in march, with very similar grades as you and I had gotten just one C in microbiology and they just said i would have to retake it there. then they wanted to wait for my spring semester grades in order to give me a decision. After I had sent them in they took exactly one month (yesterday) to give me a decision. Ad that was with me being very persistent with them and calling all of the time to check on my status. I wouldn't worry too much, especially because i have a very similar situation and I got in =] they just take a little time.
- 0Jun 30, '12 by jmat8302413I was thinking of going to Adelphi Monday morning with my transcripts and a copy of my TEAS because yesterday they told me they have not received my transcripts or my TEAS scores. I go to Nassau and I ordered my transcripts online to be sent to Adelphi a week ago, Nassau is always taking their time with everything. Do you think it's a good idea or should I just wait? I hate waiting lol, I like to just know if its either yes or no lol.
- 0Jul 3, '12 by JLB1215Congrats jess3306!! I got accepted for fall 12 also, I have a few pre reqs I need to take in september and possibly january but I am still a nursing student and will be taking nursing classes right after those are complete... jmat8302413, I would DEFINITELY stalk them and go there with all of your stuff. Once you give them everything call them the next day to make sure they have the proper information. I just got married and they had my transcripts under my old name and they thought they didnt have my transcripts at all so I would definitely follow up! Good luck!!

I am a adelphi alum from the program. Here are a few pointers:
- some of the staff is fantastic and the most helpful in the world and the rest are not. You need to watch your classes and don't just register for what your advisor says because I got screwed over doing that
- the nursing program was recently completely revamped and will have some kinks to work out as they work students through the new curriculum
- they don't tell you now, but just for being a nursing student you pay more for tuition. They always have extra fees they add on to it.
- do not listen to rate my professor!!! I have had some amazing professor that were not rated well on there. When professors become hard and strict people become resentful and write nasty things.
- do not count on administration to just solve your problems. You will need to do ALL of the leg work to correct a problem or issue
- become involved in the organizations and go on trips! I went on the costa rica service trip and had a blast. We learned about healthcare in the country and had a ton of fun doing it!
- be prepared for the extra costs down the road. The school made us buy nursing packs which included simple supplies for a few of our labs. It cost about $350. Also you will eventually need to buy their scrubs, a stethoscope, and many other supplies the school does not cover the cost of.
- COHORT programs are fantastic. I was in the st. Francis cohort for my clinicals and it gives you a real sense of an actual nursing career. In a regular clinical you have 1 patient for 8 hours. In the cohort we were paired of with a nurse and shared her load. This means it would be 2 students to a nurse and if she had 4 patients we had 2 each. We also did 12 hour shifts so we did the same amount of hours in the long run but were there for less weeks. This gave us more time to study for finals at the end of the semester.
- be prepared to lose out on a social life. My friends made fun of me the entire time I was in school because I occasionally went for a night out. To survive the program you need to be extremely dedicated and motivated.
Hope the advice prepares you!
