Ohsu - Ocne/bsn - page 2

Well my letter from OHSU finally came. I have been put on the alternate list. I guess that is better than getting a rejection letter but I have no idea what my chances of being moved up to being... Read More

    How close to the start of classes did you get "the call" that there was space for you?

    Hi, I also found out last night that I am also on the alternate waiting list for the accelerated BSN program at OHSU. It's pretty disappointing. I am not sure what's better: the waiting list or the rejection letter. I live on the east coast so the wait is especially difficult as I don't know if I should sign a 12 month lease with an apartment etc. Does anyone know how many people are on the wait list for OHSU? And what the chances are for getting accepted into the program if you are on the wait list?
    Thank you

    Zazzialex- I also found out that I am on the waiting list for the Accelerated BSN at OHSU...frustrating not knowing how many alternates there are, or what number we are on the alternates list. I'm with you in that it's almost better to have a "yes" or "no" rather than the waiting list. I wish I knew what our chances were...
    I do have a friend that applied to the accelerated bachelors to Masters in Midwifery program at OHSU last year- she was on the waiting list and ended up getting an offer...so there may be hope for us! Best to you...

    Hello everybody,
    I am planning on applying to OHSU this quarter and was wondering what your average GPA's were? I feel like I am a very competitive student but i've also heard that OHSU is a bit more competitive in the nursing program than most? Anything anybody could tell me about the school would be greatly appreciated. Are the teachers more one on one? Do you feel that its a great program... etc. ANYTHING! =) I have quite a few other options but ulitimately woudl like to be going here!!

    I talked to some advisors at OHSU and this is what I was told. If applying for the accelerated BSN program have at least a 3.9GPA. Keep in mind this is an accumulated GPA for all course work taken, not just prereqs. If applying for the standard four year BSN program, have at least a 3.8GPA for the prereqs. This was based on students who applied for the 2010 entrance. At the end of the conversation one of the advisors said, "best just to make sure you have a 4.0GPA for both programs because it's so competitive". Now this also depends on what campus you're applying to. I was only interested in the Portland campus, so I don't know if the GPA expectations are different at the other campuses.

    As a rule of thumb I go by what an advisor at CCC told me: "Have it in mind to get all A's in your prereqs. If you get one B, then you may be able to squeak by if you already have a BA/BS and can take advantage of the other points".

    WOW if that's true, I might never get it... I got all Bs in my A&P classes and would rather do a lot of things than take them again. Does the OHSU OCNE program look at the overall GPA or just for the pre-reqs? That's one school I applied to and I would love to get in....

    Honestly, they are expecting to see A's in the A&P classes. I mean they are the 'core' of the prereq classes. The overall GPA certainly comes into play. For instance, if you got all A's but one B in perhaps 'Writing 121' I think they'll slide on that, but not for a core class. I'm not applying to OHSU, even though I've hit their numbers. I would rather go to PCC or CCC, knock out the same classes at a lower price, then bridge into OHSU. I'm not going to pay 3x as much for the same class.

    I don't think you need all A's, but the higher your GPA, the better. I know someone who got into Linfield last year with a 3.4. Also, I talked to the head of admissions for the nursing program and OHSU last week and the average accepted GPA last year for the portland campus was a 3.78. I only have a 3.73, but I'm still planning to apply. You never know till you try! Oh and CCC gives so many discretionary points to their students that it's pretty much a waist of time and money if you didn't take most of you pre reqs there.
