    Well, I'll apply for Spring admission if they even OFFER Spring admission! By the looks of it SBU does not, but hopefully I'll hear back from the program coordinator soon enough to have a plan- it's my dream school

    Hey everyone, how did everyone do if you heard back on getting accepted?
    I'm actually going to apply to SBU for Spring '14 admission -after I get all my pre-reqs out of the way
    I'm not going to be a part of your class, but I'd love to stay in the loop! If you're already a student, what do you think? Any recommendations to the newbs and hopefuls of SBU Nursing?

    To everyone who is in the program, congrats! To those who are waiting on news, good luck!

    Sarolany, they do not have spring admission at the school of nursing.

    Thanks, Kris10Noel!
    Looks like I'll just have to apply for Fall 2014. That way I guess the plus side is that I don't have to do a summer term for prerequisites!

    Hi Ozzy84,

    I've applied to Stony Brook's 1 yr program and wasnt' accepted. I also applied to their 2 yr program, Pace, Drexel (in Philly) and in the process of completing my application for NYU. If i dont get into any of the school in NY, I will be going to Drexel, they've accepted me for their 1 yr accelerated program.
    @Ozzy84 don't go to drexel, pace or nyu. The tuition to go there is insane 30k - 40k per year. If you don't get into a 4 yr state school apply to a 2 yr com col... where tuition will only be 3k-4k a year. I got into NYU, Drexel, and Emory... it's not worth it + I had to pay extra for housing. And they give **** aid for nursing, cause everyone wants to be a nurse. I opted to go to my local com col program after not getting into stony last year.

    The only thing about the getting an ASN/ADN is that I probably won't be able to find a job in NY right away, however I am not to go to another state where the jobs are. And ASN/ADNs make $1 less than BSNs when it comes to hourly pay.

    I again applied to SBU for Fall 2013... however I am indifferent if I get in or not.

    Oh Yeah, drexel requires you to score an 88% on the exit HESI exam. And if you can't get and 88% or higher you can't graduate. Also drexel is on this weird trimester system and all the kids are weird. Don't go.

    Have you all noticed that the application deadline was extended into this month. I think it's now 2/18. I wonder why and I also wonder when decisions will go out.

    Hey Evadney. After i read your post i called my friend and told her she can still apply but when she tried to put in the entry term on the application the drop menu was blank and the system exited her out every time she tried. I guess that's for the other programs?... I hope it's not extended for the 2 year basic program bc then it gives time for more people to apply which makes the chances of getting in slimmer!!

    the extension is until 2/8 and it's only for the accelerated programs- not the basic.

    I'm sorry I checked again I guess I figured since accelerated was closed so long ago that it was for Basic. I just checked and its for RN to BSN and BSN to Masters. Academic Programs | School of Nursing
