    Thanks! It's great. I am working on the same unit where I completed clinical and capstone so once I started working as a nurse I was already familiar with the floor quite a bit. Stony Brook being a teaching hospital is an ideal starting place. Even if you don't start out at Stony Brook, I recommend new grads start out in a teaching hospital ... i.e., any hospital with a clear affiliation to a university.

    Hey paco Congratulations on passing NCLEX and obtaining a job. I have a question I'm trying to sign up for pre-requisites. Do you know how I should go about doing that? Do I call the school?

    hello I know this thread is from previous applicants from previous years. But I was wondering if anyone would have some insight on the qualifications since it is so competitive. My G.P.A. for all colleges attended is a 3.3. I recently was exceptect into LIU Brooklyn's accelerated program and did the first summer semester. I took Fundamentals of Nursing, Geriatrics, Pathophysiology, Pharmacology, and Medication Administration in 8 weeks. It was a grueling process and I was also wondering if it is as difficult. My G.P.A for the summer semester was a 3.2. I recently had to withdraw from LIU because it is 16,000 dollars a semester and i was commuting from shoreham. I could not affort the commute and the schools tuition. I am submitting my application for accelerated nursing program today. I was wondering if any graduates from Stony Brook think that since I already did a semester in an accelerated program that it might put me at an advantage. I am also going to apply to the 2 year program as a back up.

    Thanks Dlam! If you want to sign up for prereqs, you don't have to do them @ Stony Brook. You can do them at any accredited college. You're better off doing them @ a community college since it would be cheaper. Or if you are already @ Stony Brook, do them there. Depending on whether you are pursuing an accelerated or basic BSN program, the prereqs are a little different but they both have some similarities, such as A&P, micro, chem (I think), statistics and developmental psych. You might want to check on the website what is current, or speak to the school directly.

    I completed the accelerated program this past summer. You will want to speak to the school directly regarding your situation. I don't know of any student in my class that completed a summer at another ABSN and started ours (although there were about 4 students that started the ADN at Suffolk CC and jumped ship when they got into Stony Brook, but from what I understand they did not have any advantage or transfer credit). The only advantage you will have is the prior exposure you had to the material, but I don't believe you will be granted credit. You will likely have to repeat these courses, but I am not sure. Additionally, you have already received grades in these courses, so NOW they have some idea of how you would perform in a nursing program -- so not sure how that will come into play in admissions. Best to contact the school.

    Anyone who is applying to Stony Brook and live in the city I have a question. Stony Brook requires laboratory portions for the microbiology and anatomy and physiology classes. Anyone know where to take those classes in the city?

    Hey Dlam88, I live in the city and am currently in the program at Stony. I took all my pre reqs at BMCC. As Paco said, you can take them at any accredited school so if I were you i'd pick the CUNY most convenient to you and bang them out there. Can't beat CUNY prices.
