UCCS Accelerated BSN Acceptance

  1. Hello! I was wondering if anyone is applying to UCCS for the Accelerated BSN program for May 2018? And for any recent grads, do you know what the average GPA/ HESI scores were for those who were admitted? I don't know many people who have gone through the program so I'm just trying to get an idea of if I have a decent chance of getting in. Thanks everyone!

    Hi there!

    I applied for this program as well and would be interested in knowing the average GPA and HESI score. I heard that they receive over 100 applications, however, only about 80 are actually eligible. Of those (roughly) 80, they accept about 24-30 depending on how many clinical spots they have available. I'm crossing my fingers!

    Oh! Elvolve/Elsevier also confirmed that the "class average", in our individual HESI score reports, reflects the average for those that took the test in our year group, for the UCCS accelerated BSN program.

    Hey mskw! I tried to PM you but I am struggling with this website. I have a friend who went through the program a few years ago and from everything I have read and what she has said, they start calling people for interviews at the end of January, its coming up fast! I did pretty well on the HESI but I am a little more worried about my GPA, so it is probably a toss up but I am trying not to get too worried since I do not have much to compare it to! Best of luck to you!

    It looks like I have to have 15 quality posts before I can PM someone but I made this account simply to respond to your post, so I'm far from that. That's awesome about your friend. I bet we read the same things, but it seems like the HESI is worth quite a lot, more than the GPA, which may work to our favor. I'm in the same boat as you. I have a lower GPA, but a competitive HESI score. One of the admissions counselors I spoke to over the Summer said that they confirmed that a "competitive" HESI score was a 90 or above in every category. She also told me that that every year they have a few with lower GPA's that do really well on the HESI and get in. I do not know what they consider a "lower" GPA and I do not know what "really" well means on the HESI. I imagine they must accept some people with under 3.0 GPAs otherwise they wouldn't say the minimum is 2.5. Best of luck to you, too! I am crossing my fingers for us both! Keep your phone off silent!

    Hello! I applied as well. My GPA is okay and HESI is competitive. Does anyone know what the average scores have been? Also, any idea when they'll want us to schedule interviews? Good luck!

    That's great mskw! Way earlier than expected! I haven't received anything yet but fingers crossed. Thanks for posting! Good to know it could possibly be an email, I was expecting a phone call! Kvan327, I am not sure about averages unfortunately! I wish I did, I think I am on the fence, I did well on the HESI but my undergrad GPA is not as high as it could be. Good luck to both of you!

    Awesome!! That is so exciting. Congratulations!! I agree. It was earlier than I was expecting as well, but I'll take it. Kvan, it looks like some interviews are being scheduled for sometime next week. I'm wondering if they will have additional ones in February as they have done in previous years.

    How did everyone's interviews go? Any idea when we will hear back?

    Hi! I think it went well, but it was very weird doing it on a computer. At the end of the interview she told me that it should be sometime within the next couple weeks. I am thinking maybe by the middle of the month. I have been obsessively checking my email but nothing yet. I will let you know! Best of luck!
