    Hello my fellow rn's I think they will start sending out letters again next week. Tues.(the 4th) because those accepted have to reply by then. I can be wrong but let's not give up hope.

    Thanks for the great post! I was thinking of working while attending NYU. You mentioned it is definitely possible first semester but not second? What about the third semester? And overall how would you rate the workload per semester. Are there harder semesters and easier ones? I've been out of school for 6 years so I'm a little rusty with that.
    Hi!
    Im a final semester student in the program and Ive been working throughout the entire program without a problem. You will have one day completely off during the week each semester, during which I worked a 9-5 day. I have a flexible job hours wise and they also let me come in for half a day each week bc we usually have a day thats pretty light. If you had a weekend or night job, it would probably be easier. I wouldnt recommend more than 15 hours a week, but it all depends on the person. Some semesters are def harder but the averages in the classes have pretty much been in the 90s the entire time. Good luck!!

    To those who are still waiting- I applied October 25th, was accepted November 20th, and was given until December 11th to pay my deposit (which I already did). Accepted students are given three weeks from the date that they are accepted to pay. Hope that helps! I bet another round of acceptances will go out next week .

    Hey jipe78! Question- How was it going through the process of starting the program? I'm waiting to get my next set of emails with instructions on orientation, etc. Was NYU pretty good with walking you through the process of registration, obtaining supplies, etc? Do we have to buy scrubs/stethoscopes/etc for clinicals before they start? Does NYU tell us exactly what to order? Is this all stuff that they go over at orientation? I'm one of those people who likes to plan details like this way ahead of time lol.

    And thank you for the info on working! I'm one of those people who absolutely has to work at least a day per week in order for this to work for me. Glad to hear it can be done!

    I received my acceptance on November 13. Does anyone know whether it is better (expense-wise) to live in NYU housing or off-campus housing?

    Congrats on your acceptance! Beginning the process is a little stressful just because it is new, but I think NYU does a pretty good job with it. They give you a lot of info at oreintation, but pretty much everything can be found here Nursing Sequence | NYU College of Nursing towards the bottom of the page. You get your scrubs, stethescope etc from the bookstore, but you need to purchase plain white shoes on your own. They will give you the details on that. They will also let you know when the book list is available, but it can also be found on the bookstore website https://www.bookstores.nyu.edu/WKSCR....ORDER.PROCESS. I bought all the books the first semester and hardley ever opened them, so its up to you based on how you study. registration is def stressful, bc everyone has the same time slot so id say beforehand pick out like 5 differant options for your clinicals incase you dont get your first choice and be ready right at the time they say to register for your best shot. Theres alot of paperwork, but dont get overwhelmed. Theyre pretty helpful and everything is laid out. Good luck!
