Posted
by Julia M Julia M (New) New Pre-Student

I haven't seen any threads for the Mount Sinai ABSN Fall 2022 entry yet so I figured I would make one. I know the deadline isn't for a few months but the application has been open since August. Has anyone who already applied heard back yet?

I actually just got accepted! I applied back in September but I had micro in progress and just finished it up in December. Now I'm thinking about taking patho or pharm to transfer into the program since I've seen previous students stress about taking at least one beforehand.

I got accepted after posting this as well ? I think I will also take patho and pharm, I was looking at doing them on portage learning since that was mentioned in some of the previous threads.

Ideally I want to try and finish both but I want to start with patho at least. Are you going to try and do both as well?

If you can only take patho or pharm, I'd choose pharm, because this seems harder in pson, and it comes with proctored HESI exam that's hard to prepare ahead of time. I've heard classmates from my cohort failing pharm.

Also, do we have to buy the scrubs from the website pson sent us? Or can it be another brand with the same color?

I took both pharm or patho at PSON cause I didn't realize that I could take those two classes beforehand LOL. That's why I knew pharm's hard. 

You don't have to buy scrubs from PSON, you can buy anywhere you want, just make sure it's the required color.

thank you for the tip! I'll look into taking pharm first. I know the program is hybrid but how often are you actually going in for classes/clinicals? I am trying to work out where to look for apartments and don't want to have too long of a commute.

Last semester, we stayed online for all didactic classes including exams. However, it's indecisive for this semester, as of now, we are online until end of this month and will wait for CDC guidelines from Feb. So I can't tell you for sure and it's gonna be subject to change. 

In regards to labs, labs are all in-person, we went to labs several times during first semester, from this semester, we start clinicals, it's only gonna be mount sinai hospitals and it's mostly in NYC.
