@etchensketch Oh okay! Gotcha! Thanks for the advice. I've been looking through the past threads like you said, but it may be too late to accomplish somethings unfortunately. If I don't get in this cohort I will definitely be enrolling in the COPE Health Scholars program thank you so much for that. I have 200+ volunteer hours at a medical clinic I hope that would be enough. Do you mind giving a rundown on your application stats? Also do you know how many people were admitted into your cohort?

Do you know if we are allowed to have a class in progress during the summer during the application process? And for the CSUN absn it starts in the summer not the spring?

During the information session, the staff said the prerequisites must be completed by this spring semester to be eligible for the Spring 2020 cohort.

@alexandraa I believe it says that CSUN's ABSN starts in Spring, according to their website. I remember I was interested in applying for their program (when it newly opened up again since they were on hiatus), but they only opened their app window for a month so not a lot of people knew about it. But good thing they give you a heads up this round 🙂 Can't go wrong with any of the Cal States ;)

@Deohen Out of the applicants, 60 were offered an interview. And 30 were offered a seat 🙂

Stats:

GPA: 3.05 in undergrad (back in 2010) and 4.0 (prerequisites)
TEAS: 88.7% raw individual (though my Math was perfect, the Reading brought me down a bit), but still got a 98th national percentile 
Clinical experience: 190ish hours as a Clinical Care Extender at UCLA Health (Med/Surg, NICU, ER) and 255 hours as an Accelerated COPE Health Scholar at California Hospital Medical Center (Telemetry, Women’s Health Clinic, ICUs, Antepartum, Surgery). Also volunteered in a free community health clinic. 
Extra Certifications: EMT certified 
Degrees: B.A. Art History, B.A. English (both from UCI) and a M.A. Arts Administration and Policy (from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago)
Professional experience: I’ve spent most of my post-grad life in philanthropy and fundraising in non-profits (arts education, theatres, etc.)

Hint: The Director values diversity in the cohort. If anyone's worried they don't have enough clinical experience, grades or TEAS not high enough, BUT you're coming form a totally different field- that still shows promise. And don't even get me started if you're 30+ or 40+ years old and worried that you're starting all over. BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT. When you write your essay, highlight those transferrable skills. You stand out even more because of your maturity and how different you are ;)

@etchensketch wow thank you for all of that! Although it is a bit intimidating it's also very helpful knowing where I need to improve. I wish you the best of luck during your cohort! I know you got this 💪!

wow you're stats are amazing!! But i'm confused do we have to do the TEAS test to get into the program? is that considered a part of the requirements for the program?

@alexandraa Yeup! TEAS is required. Make sure to check the website for the application procedure. I don't think the next cycle's procedure is up yet, but the one that's there now shouldn't be too different from the next year's.

wait for CSUN absn? I thought CSUN didn't want teas results. I can't seem to find anything online about it, not even on the powerpoint from the information session.

@alexandraa @etchensketch I did not know TEAS was a requirement either. I can't find anything on the ABSN webpage stating it is.

OMG how embarrassing. My eyes deceived me as I read this group's name as CSULA ABSN, not CSUN. Oh dear. 

Forgive me, I will retreat. HAHA. Disregard anything I had to say previously. I don't know that much about CSUN's program, I remember when I was looking into it, I didn't like how there was no class before me and thus no one to seek mentorship or advice from (last cycle's app process was the first after their hiatus).  

BUT, if anyone's interested in CSULA's program, hope anything I said was helpful. Anyways, carry on! Good luck to ANY applicant of ANY program ;)
