Rutgers University Fall 2018 ABSN

  1. Hello all,

    I've noticed that no-one made a thread for the accelerated nursing program for fall 2018 students so I decided to start one. Feel free to share any knowledge on the program

    Hi,

    I'm planning on applying for the Fall 2018 cohort but am currently working on finishing up my last prerequisite and personal statement. I don't have much knowledge of it. My classmate applied for the Spring 2017 class and she got her acceptance letter about a month or so after the deadline in September. It seems like the program waits until after the deadline to send out letters based on threads I've read.

    Thanks for starting this! I'm hoping to apply for Fall 2018...although it depends on if I can take all the prereqs I need before June. I'm not sure I can make it happen, both with the schedule and financially (ugh!) and may need to push it to Spring.

    What's everyone's background?! I have a BS in Sports Management. I'm nervous because my college GPA was low (and I didn't care about science classes back then!), but I'm 32 now and that was over ten years ago! I'm hoping if I can get all As on my prerequisites I can prove I'm smart and dedicated and that times have changed for me, haha. It's so nerve-wracking though! Words of encouragement and positive stories are much appreciated

    Does anyone know if AP credits are accepted for the statistics prerequisite? If not, any information if Applied Business Statistics would count towards the stat prerequisite? I've been contacting the school for months and no one has given me a straight answer

    Hello! I'm also interested in applying for the Fall 2018 cohort. Probably won't get in.. but gotta at least try!
    Does anyone know if recommendation letters are required? If so, how many and how do they need to be sent in? It seems they rely on NursingCAS for everything ..

    I actually just called and emailed them! They do not require letter of recommendations. I asked if I can send them in anyway even though they arent required but the lady I spoke to said it was not necessary to do so. Hope that helps

    Hm, I wonder why it's not 'required'. They must receive a lot of applicants to read everything.
    Thank you for your response! I appreciate it!

    Would anyone happen to know if Biochemistry/Chemistry of Life can be equivalent to Organic Chem?
    I've emailed their admissions, but haven't heard a reply since

    Here's what I don't understand. The deadline for Rutgers accelerated BSN is so late--june 1, isn't it--how can they wait till AFTER that to notify people of their acceptance? Won't we need to accept or reject offers from other schools by then?

    Literally lol. Rutgers was my safety school but being that I got accepted into Columbia University I am not applying to Rutgers anymore.
