Cal State San Marcos ABSN Spring 2019 - page 6

Hey all, just wondering who is applying to the Spring cohort at CSUSM. I actually applied to Fall and was accepted but had to defer to get better situated for the move. It worked out too because this... Read More

    I'm not an acceptance to gauge from, but I also have 30 points and I haven't seen an acceptance letter, so it's definitely above the 30 line. Summer isn't the end of the world for me though, worst case!

    They will email it to you once your transcripts are in and they evaluate all of your grades. I just received mine and it took about 3.5 weeks after my transcripts posted.

    That's interesting! I received my email saying that I've been admitted. But I didn't receive an email with my evaluation...should I be concerned?

    Does anyone know from anyone else who is in the program when we start doing clinical rotations? I assume the first semester is just campus based, but since this is an accelerated program, I wasn't sure how quickly we started rotations.

    Based on what they said in the info session, your first semester will be completing those classes listed on your eval sheet (ANTH 301, BIOL 323, & PHIL 345). If you have already completed those before being accepted into the program, then you have a semester less of classes to take, and you will join your cohort the following semester. Therefore I'm pretty sure that clinicals will not begin until later in the program.

    I'm currently in the program. You'll start clinical rotations a few weeks into your second semester. Your first semester is more pre-nursing still and consists of nutrition, bioethics, and anthropology.

    The only exception to being excused from the first three classes during the first semester is if you have taken them at CSUSM, except nutrition. Nutrition can be transferred in from other schools if it meets the requirements; however, anthropology and bioethics must have been taking at CSUSM in your previous undergrad, if you went to CSUSM. If not, you'll have to take them during first semester.

    Thanks! So, for that first semester, we are only taking 3 classes? How much time did you spend on campus during the first semester?

    I started in the summer so it was different. Fall and spring are more similar - the current cohort in semester 1 this fall is on campus Tuesday from 1pm-7:30pm and Thursdays 2:30pm-5:20pm.

    Thanks for this info! Very helpful. Were you able to go to any sort of orientation before classes began and if so would you recommend doing the same?

    Yes, there is a mandatory orientation the week before classes start that is about 6 hours.

    Hello, appreciate your help!
    I was wondering for housing, what is the best way to go about looking for housing?

    Does anyone know if we will be assigned a specific academic counselor, and when?
