Hi, just want to create a topic for ppl going to RN-BSN in CSU. I applied for F & LB since August 1. CSUF specifically said that don’t send in transcripts till I got the CWID. So still waiting ... anyone in the same situation? I wonder if I can go to school and hand the transcripts to them directly to make sure they’ve got it or they only trust it if send directly by my schools? 🤔

Have you gotten your acceptance letter from CSULB yet? I’ve gotten acceptance letters from other schools already for RN-BSN except CSULB. I expect if I haven’t heard back from them by now that I probably was rejected.

Nope, friends got rejection letters from csulb but noone got acceptance yet. So just hold on for now. Yeah, I’ve got letters from all other schools too. Probably gonna go to csuf cause csulb is too slow.

Hi, I just applied to CSUF & CSULB as well to start in Spring 2021. I got accepted to CSUF so far (& will probs just go here) Are u guys doing campus-based or online? It’d be nice to know there are others 😅. I’m graduating from my ADN program at LACC in December 2020.

I received a questionnaire from CSULB today similar to the supplemental application. The due date was Oct 28. I’m not entirely sure what that means but it seems they’re still working through their applicants, so I suppose we’ll hear back after the 28th if we got accepted or not.

I’ve actually already attended CSUF RN-BSN (online) and did one semester before taking an academic leave. Since I was on a break anyways, I wanted to see if I could return in the Spring at CSULB instead. It was after all my dream school years ago.

You’re at the end of the tunnel!! It’ll go by so quick, and next thing you know you’re doing the Purdue trick to see if you’ve passed the NCLEX (; and you will! Good luck to us getting acceptance! Either/ or both schools are amazing!

 

Hi @arennlicious! I just got accepted to CSUF for their RN-BSN program as well! :) I also graduate this fall with my ADN from AVC. Are you doing the distance-based option for Fullerton?

Same, got accepted to csuf. I’m waiting for next week so their website got updated and I can formally accept it. I’m campus based. Csulb said they’ll get back to me next week too. So, let’s see how it goes. 🤣

ooo OK, sameeee. I am campus-based at CSUF & honestly I’m not sure how that’s gonna work, but we’ll see. I’m probs leaning towards part-time & working while taking classes hopefully cause I’m tired of school LOL. So glad there are others in a similar situation.

don't do CSUF RN-BSN.

 

worst decision myself and fellow classmates/coworkers made, because our CC pushed us that route. NOT designed for working RN's, plenty of programs designed for working RNs out there, def not CSUF. 

 

@Fornix90 Did you do the campus-based? I just accepted acceptance yesterday 😞 I’m hoping it’s not that bad. I do plan on working either 2-3 days a week.

Goodluck!  No I’m distance and if I wasn’t already over halfway would’ve dropped and transferred my classes elsewhere. 

I got conditional admission to CSULB for Spring 2021! Does anyone know if it’s campus or online exactly? I don’t remember.

I remember it’s always been campus based but this year specifically they’re doing online for Spring. I got accepted too but going to csuf already

I understand csuf is hard but a working NP told me that she went there. It was hard but it’s the best decision she’s ever made because the reputation of the school alone opened doors for her and she had so much support from alumni that she met at her workplace. She thought the hard work was worth it. She didn’t work during school though, just some volunteer stuff.

I work in an ICU with NPs with none going to CSUF, not sure many people have the luxury of not working for over a year and just volunteering, than yeah of course it’s doable. 
 

and I spoke with a recruiter from UCLA and USC NP programs both who said they accept a wide variety of students and primarily focus on experience and GPA, not ADN-BSN school choice. 

If your able to volunteer and not work a year than it’d be a great fit and possibly manageable. But your losing out on income and experience by not working. When you can work and do a program designed for working nurses.

Hello! 

I'm in the process of applying to CSULB's RN-BSN program for Fall 2021. I was wondering if you guys had to submit official transcripts to admissions? I can't seem to find the deadline on CSULB's website about when official transcripts are due 

@Fornix90 Could you explain why it's not doable to do CSUF while working? I thought the distance learning option was created specifically for working RNs and the program is my top choice, but your comment has me worried.
