I've used this forum for quite a while to get a point of reference on how competitive I am to eventually obtain offers of admission to several nursing programs
throughout the country.
One of the programs I really want to get into is Samuel Merritt's ABSN! Being that I have not seen any threads for those of us applying to SMU for the Summer 2016 Cohort, I thought I'd start one since the application deadline has passed (unless they've extended it passed the original app deadline of 9/1/15).
Let's stick together through this nerve wracking process, get to know one another, share some stats, experiences, and key information as it arises.
BS in Health Sciences, Pre-Clinical Option at CSU East Bay in progress and projected to graduate March 2016.
Average GPA (Last 60 Semester Credit Units or 90 Quarter Units):

Key Work/Volunteer Experiences:
I currently work at the Department of Veterans Affairs in Mental Health Administration in Palo Alto, CA for over a year and a half, and I volunteer at the Emergency Department of Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in San Leandro, CA (over 150 Hours worked and counting).I hope to hear from the rest of you, and good luck to all those who have applied or plan on applying!
