Just accepted! Fall 2012

  1. 1 I was just accepted into the Monroe College of Nursing program in NYC. It is a challenging program to get accepted to, just 25 students each semester. I had a TEAS V score of 90 and a poor college GPA, but I was able to still get in. I have to thank this forum for all the great info and motivation. I will be lurking and posting for YEARS to come. Thanks and good luck to the Pre Nursing students.

    Congrats! I too was accepted into the Nursing Program for Fall 2012. It has taken me 2 years to get this point. I already have a Bachelor's Degree in another discipline but wanted to change careers. In 2010 I went to NYC Tech in Brooklyn and met with a Nursing Advisor. At first, no one seem to know what to tell me. I already had a Bachelor's Degree but no one was definite about which pre-req's I had to take. The lack of knowledge and ignorance totally turned me off from CUNY. I ended up taking a Math Course that was not a required class but did so just to see how well I would do. I ended up getting an A and eventually abandoned my dreams of becoming a Nurse until... I decided to to a search for schools in the Bronx.

    I came across the Monroe College website. I did not seem like a legitimate school at first glance but I decided to go to a Nursing School Information Session. Upon arrival, I was impressed. It was a well-run and informed meeting. I decided to sit down with an adviser later that week. After expressing my interest for the Nursing Program with a Academic Advisor, my transcript was reviewed and I was told what specific class/es I would need. Luckily all I need to take was Human Biology with Lab. There were so many classes times available that I was able to register for my class and still attend work. I developed a great relationship with my professor and she provided an awesome recommendation letter for the Nursing Application.

    After completing the application, submitting transcript information & Essay, passing my pre-req's, I was called in for an interview. I was the first student to interview for Fall 2012 and I was accepted! Good Luck to those who are starting the process and feel free to pick my brain with questions!
