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 for this cycle? April can't... Read More

I also have been accepted to the BSN program!! (phew!) I figure this is a great way to stay in touch with future classmates and help communicate before classes start. I actually called the nursing admissions office yesterday to confirm receipt of my signed contract, so if you're paranoid like me just give them a call and they'll let you know! I also asked about orientation because I wasn't sure if there was a separate nursing orientation aside for just transfer students; apparently there is not one specifically for nursing. You just need to attend George Mason's generic orientation (in my case transfer). They offer day and evening sessions for transfers; last I checked there is only one date available in May so far. There should be others throughout the Summer, but I think I might wait to get my immunization records in line first before I go to orientation. Congrats to all who have been accepted! I look forward to hopefully meeting y'all soon
- 0Apr 26, '13 by axp7004Hey 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!
- 0Apr 30, '13 by oneluv4bHello 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!

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!
