Hi All,

Just wanted to start a forum for those planning to apply for the ABSN program at CSUN during Spring 2021.

is there only 1 application period for Spring and fall 2021? I am interested in the fall 2021 program since I will have my prerequisites completed after this fall.

Yes! I believe they have restructured their application process. CSUN now has one deadline (August 4, 2020) and this deadline will accept for both Spring AND fall 2021.

Straight from CSUN's website:

The ABSN program’s annual application cycle services a Spring and fall cohort. Once the Spring cohort is full, additional successful applicants may be offered a seat in the fall cohort. Due to high program demand, applicants are not at liberty to choose their start term. As such, applicants are advised to ensure that they would be able to start the program in either Spring or fall prior to applying.

Their prerequisite checklist unfortunately states that in progress coursework will not be accepted.

interesting... I spoke with an advisor not too long ago and I was informed that the application deadline was in February

Looks like they also updated the website! It previously said the August 4 deadline was for both Spring and fall but now it says the August 4 deadline is for Spring 2021! Hopefully that means another deadline will appear for February like the advisor told you!

Hi,

I’ve actually started writing it already too!

Hey all,

Does anyone know if work/volunteer experience is necessary for this program? I do not have that type of work/volunteer experience but was wondering if it was optional or actually a requirement for the application process.

Thanks!

Volunteer work/patient experience work is not necessary, but it is highly recommended!

Their Volunteer Experience Form states:

Quote

Prefer 100 hours or more of patient care experience in a clinical setting, completed within 24 months prior to submitting your application. CNA/EMT etc. school training/clinical hours are not considered volunteer hours.

lvsfrmthvn,

Thank you for letting me know! I saw that as well however it did not state that work/volunteer experience was necessary so I got confused.

I don't have any experience, either. 😞 I was all set to start volunteering when COVID happened! Crossing my fingers that my academic record / recommendations are good enough...

Hi guys,

I plan on applying for the fall cohort and would like some advice on my stats.

I have a current undergrad 3.33 GPA but I am taking anatomy, micro, physio, and other classes for Summer so those have not been incorporated into my GPA.

I got a C in the chem prereq and so my prereq GPA would be 3.52

Unfortunately, my volunteer hours in the ER got cut short due to covid-19. I only completed about 30 hours. 😞

I had a 5-year internship at a medical center but that revolved mainly around administrative duties but we also got to job shadow medical professionals, learned how to bandage wounds/stop bleeding, computer skills and so much more. I just do not know how I would show that in the application.

I've been so anxious about my stats and not having done better that it's driving me crazy.

Also, how do I go about contacting an advisor?

I am wishing you all who are applying to Spring cohort the BEST of luck!!

Hi everyone! Just submitted my application for Spring 2021....wondering if anyone knows the timeline on when admission decisions are released.

Good luck to you all~

Hi everyone I also just submitted my application. I am now just working on sending in the required forms. It will be a while until we hear back but good luck to everyone!

Based on other forums, I read that the Spring 2020 cohort received admission decisions in late November.

Hi everyone,

I submitted my application for CSUN's ABSN Spring 2021 today. I am so nervous because I am eager to get into this program. On the plus side, I've been living in the valley all my life. Wishing all of us luck!

Hi guys!

I just submitted my application for Spring 2021 as well! Crossing my fingers this is the light at the end of this 2020 tunnel haha Good luck everyone!

Does anyone know if there is another forum for Spring 2021? I just want to hear all and any updates as possible. 🙂
