CSU Stanislaus ASBSN Spring 2021

I'm curious as to how many people on here are planning on applying for the ASBSN program through Stanislaus State. Due to Covid-19, the process is entirely online. While the application fee has been waived (hooray!) we do have to pay for transcripts to be emailed electronically so the cost evens out (dangit). It looks like a fabulous program, and although it's pricey at around $36k it's cheaper than other accelerated programs in the Sacramento/NorCal region.

Helloooo!

I just found out about the program this past month and decided to apply, despite the fact I'm taking the TEAS test really close to the application due date 😅

How's your application going??

@ann.bri My application is pretty much finished. Tomorrow I plan on sending out the requests for universities to send their transcripts to CSU Stanislaus so they can be received in time. I already applied through CSU apply--that was easy enough--but I'm waiting until one of the info sessions before submitting what I have. I'm a bit nervous that my points are low, despite my work and volunteer experience.

How is your TEAS study prep going? Or if you finally took it, how did you do? I got an 84.7% on mine, 1st attempt. I haven't taken it a second time.

@Santacruzsandy5 Sorry for the late response! Studying for the TEAS has been pretty slow, but it's going well overall! I'm mainly focusing on the math and science portions since those 2 subjects are my weakest ones. I'm not too stressed out about the English and reading portions, but I'll probably review them 1-2 weeks before my scheduled exam date.

84.7% is really good! Well in my books. Not sure what the average is for CSU Stanislaus looks for. Do you plan on taking it a second time?

@ann.bri I highly, highly recommend reviewing the science portion, as well as the English portion. I thought I was pretty comfortable with science but then some of the questions caught me off guard. In retrospect, the math went well but it was draining, and if I had been a tad more confident with my science knowledge I would have done better on it. The English...well, that's a hard call. I excel at English and I did extremely well on the Reading portion. However, when it came to knowing basic subject vs predicate vs compound sentence grammatical rules, I realized I didn't know as much as I thought I did. When you take the test, make sure to go slow, be thorough, and review your answers a 2nd time before jumping to the next section.

I made the decision to not retake the test. I know if I took it again I could do better, but it's $100/pop to take the test and I'd rather hold onto my money.

@Santacruzsandy5 Thanks so so much for all the study tips and advice! Now that you mentioned it, I do seem kind of rusty when it comes to English grammar, punctuations, and different rules. I've been watching some Youtube videos on how to pass each section tbh 😅.

I used the ATI TEAS secrets study guide, the cover is black and yellow & you can purchase it on amazon for about $20. It’s the only thing I used to study and I got 84.7% , I should have studied more tbh. but there are 3 total practice tests in the back of the book & I found that to help a lot.

Hello! I've been holding off on this application for too long. How do we send our official transcripts to their asbsn email? Or how is everyone sending in their official transcripts?

@NaanNursing For me personally, the schools I went to provided the option of sending my transcripts as PDFs since the admissions offices are closed due to covid. I would check in with how your schools are handling transcripts right now and see if they provide the option to send your transcripts as PDFs to the asbsn email.

@ann.bri and @NaanNursing I actually submitted my application today. I emailed it in: asbsn@csustan.edu Is where you send it. Also this is where you send your official transcripts. Now, I attended the info session on the 6th, and I’m really glad I did, because I told the host I had already ordered paper copies of my transcripts and asked her if I could send them in. She said we could, but we needed to send them to a specific address, and email the above account to give them notice. It’s our job to touch base and make sure that they actually received the paper transcripts. I intend on following up next week.

can you list the address? Some of my schools will not allow me to send official transcripts to an email 😕

What I was told to do was email and let them know, "Hey, I'm sending over transcripts by mail!" so that way they know to keep an eye out for them. Also, it's our responsibility to make sure they arrive, so I'll be emailing them on Tuesday to follow up with what I mailed out the week prior.

Good luck!

Same! I couldn't opt for the email transcript. I had to order my hard copy transcript to the address @Santacruzsandy5 stated above. I hope it gets to their office in time within these two weeks. I have 3 transcripts that I'm sending in.

Hi everyone!

I’m working on getting all the docs ready for the application. I may not have all of them until late next week which when the deadline is. Oh well. It was sort of a last minute decision for me because the schools I prefer either deferred the program to Fall 2021 or cancelled it altogether.

Does anyone have an idea what the schedule of class look like? I attended the info session and the program director said the clinicals are usually once a week for 12 hours, depending on the session. I was wondering what the lecture/theory class scheds are and if all of them are online or how much of them are.

@Zee28 that question was asked during my info session in July. It was stated, at this time, that non-clinical classes, such as theory, were going to be online unless something changed between now and January 2021. As for the actual schedule, I'm not sure what look like.

@santacruzsandy5: thank you for that info!

Hey guys, it's August 17th! Did you guys confirm that the school received everything you sent in?

I'm actually a little surprised that there aren't more people on this thread commenting that they applied. I wonder if Covid set a lot of applicants back?

I was also surprised! I'm going to follow up today to make sure they received everything. I didn't attend the info session - just to clarify, our theory will be virtual but we will have labs/clinicals in person, correct?

Do any of you know what the points cutoff is typically?
