    Thanks! I went on Monday and my status changed on the website the next day that my application is complete and is under review and I will be notified shortly... Should I call the school or just wait for the online status to change to either accepted or rejected?

    Does anyone know anything about the accelerated nursing program (second degree) at Adelphi. What is the acceptance rate

    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!

    Wow dpurta thank you so much for all of the information!! I will definitely be aware of these tips. Do you have any info on textbooks? Where did you get yours? Are there many textbooks you need to buy when you get to your clinical phase? I am starting clinicals in the spring. I have some textbooks to buy for Patho, phys chem, emerging trends in genetics and informatics in healthcare for this coming semester in the fall. Any tips on saving money? Thanks so much!!

    I am applying for spring 2013, I have a 3.0 now and I have over 80 credits that they take. All of my sciences are over a c+ so I think I am ok but I am nervous about the TEAS exam and if they only base their decision on the exam. Any advice?
  11. by   JLB1215
    catherine, I was nervous about the TEAS also but you have a good GPA I think that is what they look at the most. All you need to do is pass (your grade doesn't matter) all sections of the TEAS and they accept you. That is 100% true. Good luck!

    I'm considering applying to the accelerated bsn for Fall 2013 and a little worried my GPA isn't strong enough to get in (3.2 post bacc, 3.5 major undergrad), for those who have recently gotten in what was your GPA and TEAS scores like? I'm doing the TEAS December 18, totally terrified--I did well on the NLN but this has more topics I don't have Chem 2 but I do have organic and I have no idea what Pathophysiology is (I did my prereqs at Hunter, they didn't offer anything)--if I'm missing both should I not even bother applying?
