University of Washington accelerated BSN summer 2013

  1. 0
    Hello!

    I applied for the accelerated BSN October 15th and just completed my proctored essay yesterday, October 18th! I live out of state so I had to do it at a testing center. Anyone else apply for summer 2013?

    I was surprised at how easy the essay and math calculations were. It seemed like something a 6th grader could do...

    The online informational slide show was encouraging. They said there are approximately 48 open slots for approx 96 applicants (at least that was in '11/'12). Those are better chances than for many other accelerated programs around the country! But I'm still nervous since the US News ranking listed UW #1 for nursing programs! That's great but I would imagine to make it very competitive.

    Anyone else applying to other accelerated BSN programs around the country?

    Yes, I applied for the 2013 ABSN at UW, too. I liked the essay questions. Which one did you do? I did the mental health one. I was so glad the math was as easy as it was. I don't relish the next couple months of waiting, but I was very encouraged to hear her say that last year they made it through their entire waitlist - makes me feel there is good hope even if I don't get a seat off the top. I'm over on the Olympic Peninsula with a family and lots of local responsibilities, so it will be a real life-changer for my whole family if I get in. That's the hardest part of waiting to find out.

    Good luck!

    Hey all, I applied as well. I agree about the proctored essay being very easy. I chose the elderly patient myself. I was so nervous through it though. It was pretty encouraging that she said they went through the entire waitlist. @minnie she said that there were 48 slots & about 142 applied.

    @macrina Did she say that we were supposed to get a preliminary letter saying that our app will or will not go through to the committee?

    No, they don't interview. They said they should get back to us the 3rd week of December

    I was accepted as well. Now for all the logistics....
    I am about 90% sure I'm going to take it. But I have a lot of figuring out to do with my family. I will be moving over from Port Townsend for the year.

    Anybody else know if you're going to do the program for sure?
