Hi! I live in Portland, OR and want to apply for OHSU's accelerated bachelor's program for nursing, but there isn't a lot of information out there on it. I've browsed their website, but it doesn't answer all the questions I have.... Read More

    Oh dear this is the ABSN forum! My bad! I applied to the traditional BSN at Kfalls.

    I've been following this forum for awhile, but never actually posted. I thought for sure I had no chance of getting into any of the programs I applied to, but I got a phone call at 10:15 this morning offering me a spot into the summer cohort! There's still hope! Good luck to all the wait listers!

    Congrats! I am happy for you both! A bit disheartened that the program is full. Good luck!

    Sartorius- Well, I applied to Linfield, UofP, and OHSU this year. I got flat out denied at Linfield. I got on the UofP wait list, but found out I was 100-something in line for that. Reading through these boards I was expecting a denial, but was happily surprised at an alternate offer at OHSU. GPA of my previous degree was around 3.45 and my pre-req GPA was was actually only around a 3.6. Stiff competition lead to my belief of being farther down on the alternate list than I expected. Maybe my essay was better written than I thought, I pulled from my current experiences as a med aide in a memory care facility. I guess it's just one of those instances to believe that anything can truly happen.

    Wow! I would love to have some crazy- huge spreadsheet of all the accepted students at all the programs. Based on what you said, I would have thought Linfield would've at least wait-listed you (according to my perception anyway).It sounds like you really wanted it and they recognized that. Good job!

    I received a call from OHSU yesterday at around noon saying that they would like to offer me admission to the Summer cohort. I was sort of in shock and I didn't accept right away, but they told me that I had until today (5/18) at noon to make a decision. I had some questions I needed to ask the Financial Aid department before I could accept. Eventually I called back at around 5pm to say that I accepted. So for those that are still waiting for a call, perhaps they will make more phone calls today.
