How is CUNY CSI (College of Staten Island) nursing program?

Posted

Hello! I am currently a freshman at Binghamton University planning to transfer (Due to covid and financial reasons) into CSI for next semester for Spring 2021 and I am interested in their nursing program. I was thinking of Hunter or city tech but I heard Hunter is really competitive and city tech has a messy nursing program. So I was wondering how are the professors/ classes at csi? How supportive is the nursing program department?

Hi there,

CSI is VERY competitive . I am trying for Spring 2021 too. You need to have a very good GPA and a good score from NLN PAX RN.
If you are looking for Supportive Professors you better go to WAGNER, which again is costly.

Hello! Thank you for responding! Do you mind privately messaging me so that I can ask more question about CSI nursing program if you don't mind?

@BUU Hey, I saw your comment that you’re applying for Spring 2021, so am I as well.. I’m wondering what you got on the NLN if you do not mind me asking. I’m a little nervous that they aren’t accepting a lot of people due to COVID.

Hi Emily, I know last semester they accepted only around 30 students compared to their usual 70-80 . I got a 125 for NLN and my GPA is 3.9. How about you?

I got a 133 with a GPA of 3.5. I heard that too, and my advisor also said they might be doing the same thing due to COVID right now so I am a little nervous. Hopefully it all works out for us 🙂

Yes that’s very sad, better have a plan B.

@BUU Hey, I just went to check but it’s giving me issues right now, a lot of other students are dealing with the same thing as well. Is your application saying if you got in??

Good to know there is an error. I mean I hope it is. Do you know of anyone who was able to check?
