George Mason Accelerated BSN - Fall 2013 Applicants - page 2

Hi all! New member here. :wavey: Since the only threads I see about GMU are from previous admissions cycles, I thought I'd start a new one for Fall 2013. The deadline just past... so who applied... Read More

    In the fall I think we had 16 credits. We had a 3 credit 8-day course over winter break. Currently we have 16 credits and then I think we have 12 in the summer. Even though the fall and spring have the same number of credits, this semester is much harder. Clinicals two days a week really takes up a lot of study time and we have much more written work.

    One more day until spring break!

    sKris-The program does sound rather intense! Are there 2 clinicals in the summer-an inpatient setting and a community one?
    I'm surprised more people have not responded to this thread. It might be that more people will come out closer to April. I can't believe there is still about 6 weeks before we find out!

    Hello, there!
    I also applied for GMU Accelerated BSN program a few month ago. I was wondering if there are applicants who would like to share their GPA, majors, etc.? I majored in psychology (B.A.) and got the degree at GMU. My overall GPA is quite poor (barely made 2.9) but I did my best on the essay part. I don't have much of clinical experience but I worked here and there (as a pre-school teacher and a counselor) and have volunteer experience in Habitat for Humanity. Since my graduation I started making youtube videos during my spare time.
    April can't come any sooner! Waiting for the letter is brutal and painful... I hope we all get in!

    I received my acceptance letter from GMU (general admission) in the mail! That's a couple weeks before I expected it so I am hoping that the letter from the nursing department will come before the end of April.

    Yes, there are two summer clinicals. We have five weeks of community health along with two online courses. Then a one week intensive lab--all day 8:00 - 4:00. Then preceptorship! I can't believe it's only 7 weeks until summer. I am ready to be finished!

    sKris: At what hospitals/clinical sites do ABSN students complete their clinicals? Is it mostly INOVA?

    We have had people at VHC, Sibley, Mt Vernon, Children's, and Fairfax. Summer will be much more spread out.

    Just got off the phone with the admissions office at GMU, and they said we should receive our transfer decisions (for the University, not nursing school) within the next 2 weeks. I was hoping it would be a little sooner, but at least the wait is almost over.

    Hello April!

    REALLY?? OK... that just put another check mark in the "Pros" column for GMU. I can walk or bike to class!
