SUNY Downstate Accelerated BSN Program

  1. 0
    Hello,

    Is there anyone out there who has attended, or is attending, the SUNY Downstate Accelerated BSN Program who can share your experience? I really don't know anything about the program aside from what's on the website and what people have said on AllNurses.

    I have been accepted there and Columbia and am trying to make a decision. I feel like I have lots of information from Columbia but really none from SUNY. Thanks - any info would be really helpful.

    Moved to NY Nursing Programs where past and current students from this program are more likely to see and respond to your thread.

    Hey Briginit,
    I applied and patiently waiting for my reply from Downstate or not. I wanted to know what was your gpa and TEAS test scores like. I am kind of panicking that I would not get into the program because my gpa was like a 3.5 and I did somewhat ok on the TEAS exam.

    Hi! I'm also waiting....and waiting

    When did you hear back from Downstate Medical???
    Also, the program is different from Columbia, isn't it? As for the Columbia's accelerated program is a combined degree program BSN/MS?
    If you are only going for your BSN, recall that Downstate Medical is way cheaper than Columbia's...

    @esalandy My GPA in my pre-requisites is close to 4.0 (because I'm kind of nerdy when it comes to school), and I did well on my TEAS. I'm sure you should be fine with a 3.5; your chances are probably even better if your grades were better than that in your science pre-req's. Good luck with SUNY and PM me if you have any questions.

    bringinit, I was wondering what you decided in the end. I too am currently trying to decide between Downstate and Columbia for summer 2012...

    bringinit, would it be possible to PM me your e-mail address? I am unable to send PMs since I have not posted enough on this site...
