I applied to UNC's program when I was an undergraduate for May 2011 and was wait listed (so I changed my major and graduated early). I also applied to WSSU ABSN program that was to start Jan. 2013 and was not accepted. My application has changed a lot so hopefully I will get in this time at UNC!
I was hoping someone else was going to start a thread and when one didn't pop up I decided to go for it, I couldn't be the only one applying!!
Well it looks like we are the only ones! Haha hopefully that means good news in about a month . I applied to duke and UNCG as well. I hate waiting...I'm usually a very patient person, but I haven't been lately! What kind of medical experience do you have?! Hopefully someone else will find us!
Hey guys! I also applied to UNC's 2 year nursing program. I graduated with a biology degree from a private liberal arts university in NC back in 2011. I've been accepted to one of my top choice accelerated programs and I have an interview at my other one. I like what I have seen from UNC but as a 2nd bachelor's degree applicant, I'm wondering whether I want to take 2 years to complete the program instead of an accelerated. Anyone else feeling the same or have any thoughts?
I was a psych major too!! Since I have graduated college I have been working full time in an Alzheimer and Dementia Assisted Living/ LTC facility as a CNA. I was considering Duke and UNCG, but Duke is too expensive for me and I don't have the NUR 210 &220 for UNCG.
Hello! I am glad this thread was started! I am a second degree BSN seeker applying for May 2013. <br><br>@kelsey939- I am also seriously wondering if I want to take two years to complete a BSN when I could do it much faster(I just got accepted into an ABSN as well, much more expensive though). <br><br>What does everyone have for healthcare experience/volunteering/GPA? I feel like I am out of my league, being that UNC-CH is so highly ranked. <br><br>After reading the thread from May 2012, so many of the 2nd-degree seekers were not admitted, and it seemed like the undergrads are preferred. <br><br>March cannot come soon enough!!<img src="http://img.allnurses.com/smilies/watching.png" border="0" alt="" title="Bugeyes" smilieid="99" class="inlineimg"><br><br><br>
So glad to see this thread! Does anyone have an idea of when exactly we should hear back? It only took the ABSN applicants 9 weeks to hear back after the application deadline. 9 weeks for us would be next week...
I applied for the ABSN in the fall and was waitlisted.. so I reapplied for the BSN this go around. I was wondering the same thing about when we'd find out since it was the 8-9 week mark last time. I have the same feelings as others -- it seems like second degree people (which I am - Bio and Sci Ed) were not as favored as undergrads. My BFF was admitted to the ABSN last time and she said that she was one of the "older" students and she is just 30... if that tells you anything.. Anyway, fingers crossed this time! Last time I was able to call the SON and they told me the day they were releasing decisions online.. has anyone tried this this time?
