- Dec 28, '12 by claireclaireHello! Stumbled upon this forum section although I'm a BSN Fall 2013 applicant. I emailed OHSU about receipt of documents that I mailed in and they said that it takes a couple of weeks to process materials once they received them. Plus the admissions office will notify us if they are missing things from us. Hope this is of help!
- Jan 1 by mamakacI am having some friends do a final edit of my essay and the optional scholarship essays, and everything else is ready to go!
I hope that they stick with letting all of us know by April 1st-- but from previous years threads that does not seem to be true.
Good Luck to everyone!
- Jan 1 by mamakacAfter they recieve your items it should update on your application page that they have been recieved. I do not believe that they will contact you beyond that, even if you are missing items that make your application incomplete.
I recieved an e-mail from them about 2 weeks ago:
Thank you for starting (or submitting) your online application to the Accelerated Bachelor of Science with a major in nursing program at OHSU! The application deadline is January 5th. This requires that your online application is submitted and all your supplemental materials are postmarked by the January 5th deadline. Note: If you receive this e-mail multiple times it is due to the number of applications you have started with us.
Once you have submitted your online application, you must mail in hard copies of your signature page, prerequisite coursework form, all official college transcripts to:

- Jan 3 by wroblowI applied last week and, since I work at OHSU already, I hand delivered my packet to the admissions office. I don't have high hopes of getting in. My GPA is good enough, but I don't feel like I went into enough detail in my essay. I guess I will just have to wait and see [fingers crossed!]
- Jan 3 by dkmamato3Just submitted my application today and sent out the remaining pieces via certified mail...now hopefully classes will keep me loaded down with homework and other things to think about until the middle of April ;-)
- Jan 3 by sugarmagnolia77Hello to the 2013 Applicants! I'm so glad I've found this thread. I look forward to meeting some other prospective students who have applied to the OHSU accelerated nursing program. I'm excited but nervous about my upcoming career change.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Carrie. I have an undergraduate degree in Physiology and a Master's degree in Business Admin. I have worked as a Senior Research Assistant at OHSU for the past twelve years. I am a bit worried about my application since my undergrad. GPA was not ideal. =/
My undergrad GPA was only a 3.0
My Master's degree GPA was 3.91
All of my current pre-requisites have been 4.0
I'm hoping that my extensive research experience and community volunteering will strengthen my application. I'm hoping that this forum will give me insight into typical student schedule and life over the 16 month program. I am a 35 year old mother of three, so logistics of balancing it all are obviously a huge concern for me.
I can't wait to chat with some other prosepctive students from the 2013 applicant pool!
