    Hi guys! I too am applying to Stony Brook Nursing =) I completed and submitted my application to the ABSN about a month ago and am currently just working on submitting the application to the 2-year program! Eeek! Talk about nerve wracking. Is it okay to ask Santa for acceptance to the program this year!?

    Okay, so I have avoided this blog for a while, but am glad to see some of the same people back applying again. I too have submitted my application and have better letter's of recommendation this time and I improved my personal statement. I also have completed all of the prereq's and am currently in a nursing assistant program at the Long Island State Vets home at Stony Brook. I do my bed lab days at the SON at Stony Brook and always wonder if any of the students I see around are ones from this blog who got accepted this year. I love the training I'm getting to become a CNA and should have a job at Stony Brook as a CNA once I graduate on Nov. 18. If I don't get into the ABSN Program this time, I don't know what else I can do to improve my chances. Good luck to everyone!!!

    Are you guys just applying to Stony Brook or do you have other schools as a safety? I'm applying to Molloy as well, but Stony Brook is my #1! I made a few adjustments to my personal statement from the accelerated one over to the basic 2 year, just a few tweaks here and there. Anyone else applying to both? I also hope we hear back as soon as possible! I know come end of December I'm going to be a solar lunatic!

    I'm not sure yet if I'm going to apply to the 2 year again as well. I applied to both last year.

    chele, what was your background before choosing nursing? sounds like youve got a good chance to me!

    Hi everyone! I was also part of last year's thread and like chele118 I went into hiding. I see some familiar names on here (hey Paco69, dr3amygirl, chele118, kay1024! )

    I decided to come back because having everyone's support was great last year. I'm reapplying for the 1 year and 2 year programs and hoping to make it in this year. I'm also looking into a few other schools to have some other options unlike last year.

    Good luck everyone!

    One more thing....

    Paco- Do you know of any people in your class who have got in while planning to still complete one pre-req? I'm debating whether I should submit my not so great chem grade and show that all my pre-reqs are completed or select "plan to take on my application." I know we probably went over this in last year's thread but it's soooo long to go through.

    If anyone else has some insight please let me know, thanks!

    I was a graphic designer for over 15 years. I got tired of losing my job either to downsizing or company's moving out-of-state. I'd been thinking about nursing and thought now is the time. So After my last layoff I took the prereqs necessary and was lucky enough to get into this CNA program. They only took 16 people out of over a 100 or more applicants. The class is awesome, I'm learning so much!!! I can't wait for nursing school.

    Since I submitted my application only last week (but I handed in all of my transcripts a few weeks ago), I can not see my documents updated in Solar...so I dropped off a set of unofficial transcripts today just in case...I need to see that it is all received...I am so nervous!

    I got an email today saying that since they got so many applications, it could take several days before your records all show up. All of mine are up now. Check again tomorrow.

    Thanks chele118! I did get the same message, I just would hate for a mix up of paperwork to cause my application to be rejected!! Getting ready for another long wait through the holidays!
    What industry were you in graphic design for? I was in fashion design/product development/buying for around the same amount of time....

    Publishing, magazines, books, catalogs, print ads, etc. I loved it, but always felt there was something more out there for me.
