    I am a Winston Salem resident. I am currently taking pre-reqs at FTCC and I will be applying to both Forsyth Tech's ADN program and Winston Salem State's Accelerated BSN program for January 2012. I graduated in '07 from ECU with a BS in Biology so I have all of the pre-reqs completed. I am re-taking a few to be more competitive! Is there anyone else going to send in an application for the ABSN program August 1, 2011? I have also been working for WFUBMC in a research lab for 3 years now...hoping this will help when I try to get funded!!

    I'll be sending an application for the ABSN at WSSU. I'm currently taking my pre-reqs at WSSU right now.

    Hey David!
    It's nice to hear from someone else who is applying. Do you know if the program is really competitive, or about how many people apply each year?

    I do believe the program is competitive to gain entry. I'm not sure how many apply but I do know 45 students are accepted each year, if that helps.

    I'm planning on applying and I'm worried about getting in also.I graduated from Gardner Webb University with a B.S. in Human Services. I maintained a 2.98 cumulative average and completed with a 2.88 overall average in my undergraduate degree program.I started college pursuing nursing although the programs were to competitive to gain entry. I have all the prereqs. out the way with b's in all of them. However can anyone tell me what chemistry I need? I have 131 chem and lab. But some people say you need general chemistry 151 it's a big difference! Additionally I have been working as a certified nurse aide 1 for 7 years. Feel free to reply with answers, Barbara

    Hey Barbara,

    If you go onto WSSU's website under the accelerated program you can find all the pre-reqs that they use for admission. General chemistry is one of them. The two colleges that I have attended have had this chemistry labeled as CHEM-150 and the lab 151. Hope this helps....good luck!

    I will be applying to the ABSN at WSSU for the class starting in January 2012. I've taken all the pre-reqs so far except A&P II which I'm taking this summer. I had an admissions appointment at the end of last year and the counselor told me they accept 45 students. She said most successful applicants have at least a 3.0 GPA and mostly As in the pre-reqs. I believe she said they have almost 200 applicants for the program but not all of them are qualified (pre reqs not complete etc.).

    I'm also a pirate...class of 2007!

    Hi Barbara,

    Both Chm 131 and 151 with a lab are acceptable as transfer credits. There is a form in the Nursing building at WSSU that provides confirmation.
