    Yes there are extra immunizations. They provide a physical form, but you are not required to use it. Some requirements also have a designated time frame, so if you jump the gun you'll have to do it twice (like the drug test).

    Hey everyone! I too received my nursing acceptance letter last week and will be one of your cohorts

    Just wanted to say that I was also one of those people waiting for the general Mason transfer acceptance and it came in the mail today. It was dated April 24 so it looks like these just came out.

    Lookin forward to this August!

    Hello fellow future nurses,

    I was accepted to GMU's accelerated nursing program for Fall 2013 and am very excited about it. A bit scared and nervous too of course. I have a question about clinical assignments. First, when after starting do we go to our clinical site for the first time? Does it start right away the first week of classes? Also, once assigned to a clinical site such as Prince William or Fairfax hospital etc., are we switched throughout the program to various areas of nursing within that site or are we sent to other sites? Thanks!

    I got into Marymount as well.......will be going to GMU though as it was my first choice, more convenient area wise and way cheaper lol. Getting it all in in three semesters will be quite a ride though.

    Has anyone set up their Mason e-mail account yet?? Just curious since the offer letter mentioned that we need to send it to the BSN department for communication over the Summer. If anyone has/knows how to do that yet please let me know! Thanks!

    No, maybe it's something you do at the orientation? I did receive an email from the Dept on my regular email account yesterday just saying they received my intent letter to enroll in program and that to expect further communication mid-summer regarding immunizations, physical, registration for classes, and criminal background check. I was hoping we would get information on that sooner rather than later. Congratulations!

    Thanks for the link. I signed up for one of the orientations in June. I hope to get some of the requirements like immunizations and physical out of the way by the orientation.

    You will be at multiple different sites throughout the program. So far I have been in four different hospitals, although some people in our group were at Fairfax more than once.

    So... I heard from another accepted student that this year's accelerated class will have their nursing school orientation (separate from the transfer orientation we have to attend) the week BEFORE classes start. Did anyone else hear about this??

    sKris - you guys had yours during the first week, right?

    Btw, I'm finally enrolled. Just waiting for transfer orientation dates in July since June doesn't fit into my schedule....

    We had orientation Monday and Tuesday of the first week. The previous class had an orientation week before. Apparently it changes year to year.

    Hi Ladies!

    I've been interested in the program for quite some time. I applied in 2008 but was denied for the Fall 2009 session. They said my profile was not competitive enough. I have TWO master's degrees and an impressive resume (so I think!). But can yall give me an idea as to what they look for in an applicant? I am really interested in this program and KNOW that I was born to be a nurse!! Do they place more emphasis on the essay or the grades? I've heard that some ppl who earned a C in anatomy/physio were accepted.

    I will be applying so I will be taking the science pre-reqs at NOVA.

    Thanks ladies!!!

    If you guys are still having issues setting up your Mason email account - and you live near the campus, or don't mind driving over - you can stop by the ITU Support Center in Innovation Hall for assistance. It only takes 10 minutes to set everything up (NetID, PatriotWeb, email), and the staff is super helpful.
