University of Washington BSN Fall 2012 - Page 11Register Today!
- Apr 2, '12 by Pleasant POhh to answer your question Kasko, I had a 2:00 PM interview so I did not see you and totally agreed with you about people not dressing up, was shocked! Ohh, it may or may not be the same for you in terms of expenses! I am still considered non-resident. UW makes it more difficult to gain state residency by having the 30 hours per week work requirement if you are taking 6 or more credits which has been difficult since I had to go to school full time to complete my pre reqs. I am not going to pay out of state fees when I can go to another school and be granted residency... Not sure why UW does that, especially in a recession! It is what it is... Therefore I have more of a reason to select another school than you guys possibly! It's a great school, they all are! I'll reapply to them for my graduate program! We will see what happens! I am excited for you though, you will have a blast! UW in state tuition is about $1100 or so more than WSU. Remember that you have to multiply UW price by 3 since it's a quarter system and WSU by 2 since it's a semester system! That's probably why you thought WSU was more!
- Apr 2, '12 by jhsUWHi everybody,
First off, CONGRATS to everyone who got in and DON'T worry, for all those who didn't. Don't give up and try again next year. I'm new to this blog and received my acceptance letter on 3/31 and look forward to meeting you all in the fall. :-)
Let's talk about money....
Anyone know where to hunt for funds? My work offers some assistance but I would like to see what else is out there. If I find any good scholarships or grants I'll be sure to post there on here.
Good job to all!
- Apr 2, '12 by JLoyaI just got back from hand-delivering my Letter of Intent to the office.... that felt good....
I see a pre-summer BBQ/Meeting in the future....
- Apr 2, '12 by SushiOConnorWOW! Great posts! I'm so excited to run to the mail today! As far as the UW vs WSU choice... I actually did undergrad at University of Idaho so WSU was only a short 7 miles away (the next closest town with more than a post office not run by the mayor!) and I must say the Palouse was an excellent place to go to school. I didn't apply to WSU because it is far away from my Vancouver/Portland base. Well, I'll post ASAP after I hear anything! Hopefully, I'll be lucky with my work experience as the others with CNA, EMT experience.
As far as money, I'm looking into AnyAll possiblities. Hopefully, I won't have to take AnyMany loans, and I will be applying for as many scholarships / grants as possible too, unlike my undergrad years which I may not have kept with my lower GPA back then. Anyways... I'll keep all my digits crossed!
- Apr 2, '12 by kaskoJLoya... im LOVIN' the BBQ idea oh and i faxed my letter of intent, is that ok?
JHs... I applied to a bunch of scholarships, some of which you can find on Washboard.org, I am still a senior in high school so I also was eligible for many many scholarships for seniors, oh and I applied to the opportunity scholarship and UW's UWAB Alumnae scholarship. it also depends if you already have a degree or not... there aren't that many scholarships out there for students getting a second degree.
- Apr 2, '12 by abaloneJLoya: A summer BBQ sounds like a great idea! (just not in July bc I'll be gone, hehe) Kasko: I'm sure faxing it is fine! They had the fax number on the paper so it only makes sense. Like you both have done, I now need to turn in my letter of intent. But, I also have to figure out who to notify that I'll be declining my seat in UW's ABSN program... Then I have to change my UW admission application (post-bacc) from Summer to Fall... Uhggg I have permission but I have a feeling it will still be a pain to accomplish.
Scholarships: They sound so nice, don't they? I'm certainly applying for the UWMC/Haborview NS Loan Program but I hear it's pretty hard to get. It sounds lovely though. This is my second degree so I'm not eligible for many other scholarships but if I don't receive the loan program I plan to work as a Nursing Tech at UWMC (or at least apply to do so) as soon as I'm eligible. I think UW NS are eligible after they complete their first quarter but I'm not sure. Plus, when we are searching for our first jobs as RNs, experience working as a Nursing Tech will undoubtedly help.
- Apr 2, '12 by JLoyaI am applying for the HMC/UWMC NS Loan, I also receive 6 credits paid for since I work for Harborview as a full-time employee already...
I am crossing my fingers for the NS Loan, I am hoping my connections on the inside at HMC have some influence to the decision makers. One of my co-workers in the ER received this loan. It is HUGE... I am applying for some loans through Phi Theta Kappa honor society here at my current school.
In regards to the get together it should be sometime in late june once all of these classes are over, and if ANYONE is thinking about enrolling in the Summer offering of NCLIN 302, I emailed Dora Wang today about the possibility of starting that class in the summer so that I (or anyone else) doesn't have a caseload of 17 credits the first quarter. I know I'm going to take it if I can...
- Apr 3, '12 by armynurse68Jloya, Have you heard anything back about taking the summer class? Since my transfer application was for autumn, can I sign up for summer quarter? Also, do you know anything about the class as far as difficulty goes? I am still working full time at the hospital and wasn't planning on going per diem until September, so if the class is time consuming, I might just wait.
The BBQ sounds like a great idea. It would be nice to meet everyone!
- Apr 3, '12 by JLoyaI havent heard from Dora yet today. When i emailed them a few weeks ago this was their response...
It is possible to take some courses during Summer quarter either NCLIN302 or NURS404 which can be seen on the program curriculum grid if they are available. You may want to wait to hear our admissions decision before you decide to change your enrollment with UW which should be mailed out mid April however it is entirely up to you.
So in the catalog for this summer, only NCLIN 302 is available... It is a 5 credit clinical health assessment course. I would advise it because it takes 5credits off of our HEAVY load of 17 credits in the first quarter. The 404 isn't available, it is only 2 credits that is offered in the spring... I work full time now and I think I would still work full-time with that one class. I plan to go down to a 0.6 in the fall, working Sat and Sun days... I have a friend who is graduating the UW BSN this summer after his senior practicum and has worked that shift for the last 2 years and he said it was doable; he has a family like me as well....
- Apr 4, '12 by fn2012JLoya,I may be interested in taking this course too. How do we register for the course if we have yet to be admitted into UW, but accepted into the BSN program?
