Hello! I just received an acceptance for the Fall 2016 class. I am wondering if any former or current students had advice about the program--whether they think it is worth it? How they feel about it?... Read More

    Hello!

    I submitted my application with everything verified and complete through NursingCAS for the VBSN program on March 23rd. I just got an email today that they completed the preliminary review of my application and sent it to the Admissions Committee. I hope to hear back soon because I am still on Active Duty and my request for an early release to further education is waiting on my acceptance here. I've been accepted to VBSN programs at UAB and USM, but have my sights set on GWU.

    If any other VBSN applicants have any information about the VBSN program, GWU veterans services, yellow ribbon program, or any other helpful information please let me know!

    Congrats! I'm looking at the Spring 2017 VBSN program as a soon to be veteran myself! What kind of background do you have? Undergrad degree?GPA?Pre-req GPA? Is your job right now medical related? Good luck and congrats!

    I am still active duty actually! I am in the Navy, a Hospital Corpsman. My GPA is 3.78. Just waiting on my request for early release to further education to get approved. I just have my associates degree in general studies and additionally classes to fulfill my prerequisites. My acceptance is actually conditional just because I'm currently finishing Microbiology and A&P II which will be finished in June. Thank you!!

    Was anyone wait list for the spring 2017 start? I was placed on the wait list and haven't heard anything ever since. I am also not sure how long I have to wait for a response from them.

    Hi everyone!

    I'm currently applying for fall 2017 and I'm just wondering how those of you who are in the middle of the program right now feel about it. Do you like it? Is it well organized? Do you like the clinical placements? Does it seem like people find jobs pretty easily afterwards?

    Thanks!

    I got accepted into the Spring 2017 VBSN and i do not have a degree at all. I have all my prereqs done and a little extra credits and then of course the credits from being in the military. I'm still an active duty member of the Army as an Veterinarian Technician but I'll be out at the beginning of this month.
