    Questions regarding the seats in the program- there are a total of 72 of us i believe, with over 700 applicants. Our decisions were delayed, i did not find out until May 10th. However, last year, they were going through the re-accreditation process which was a reason for the delay. The prior year heard mid-April. Good luck to you all!

    U have a question. I am sure this is not common but I would like to hear the opinion.

    As we now basic nursing program required minimum AS degree. I do have A.S degree and also bachelor degree both from non us university. SBU require to evaluate from WES the transcript. I only evaluated my AS degree and didnt evaluated bachelor degree to not paying an other 220$. In addition as a supporter document I upload the transcript included diploma. And since I don't choice any class to be transferred from bachelor part.

    Do you think is it cause any problem?
    Ps : my all pre required courses were took in USA (cuny college ) I just selected only 3 class from my previous degree as elective course that required for 16 credit .

    I don't believe it's too difficult to get housing I know classmates that transferred in and got it..as far as volunteer work while in the program- it is a great idea but in my opinion I wouldn't make any decisions until you start the program..your first semester you will take 24 credits..fundamentals of nursing, health assessment, biomath, health care policy, perspectives of nursing, pathology and pharmacology..i had to quit my job it was too much.. I know ppl that did it with a job and volunteering but it was just too stressful for me..it's a very heavy courseload.
