Sam Houston State - Spring 2019 - page 8

As I was going through looking for threads of the programs I plan to apply for I didn't see one for SHSU Spring 2019 so I decided maybe I would go ahead and start one! I am currently finishing my... Read More

    I received acceptance into the Lonestar program today!
    A BSN program (SHSU/UTH) is still my first choice so I'm hoping for a similar email from one of them, but if not I am breathing a little easier knowing that I will be starting nursing school in January!
    Yes! That is still exciting! I was speaking to an APRN and she said she did her associates in nursing first, then worked at a hospital and got her bsn in nursing which the hospital paid for. Then afterwards continued on to get her masters!! Longer process but still worth it I would say!

    In the email immunizations I received, it said I had until October 5th to send in. So I'm not sure if they'll be prolonging the process of sending out acceptances/denials.
    Oh yeah, good call. Well hopefully the next two weeks fly by (again!) lol. The waits for these BSN programs are brutal!

    Yes, I am thrilled either way! When I set out on this journey last year my original goal was ADN, I just happened to complete my associates of science a lot faster than I thought so it put me in the pool of eligibility for BSN programs as well.
    My big immediate goal is RN and I will absolutely be okay earning that with an ADN and bridging to a BSN after, but if it's in the cards to go directly into a BSN than I will be beside myself excited to jump right into that journey.

    I wonder why they have some people deadlines for September 24 and some October 5. I have to respond to the ADN program by October 5. Does anyone know what will happen if you confirm at one school until hearing back from another? to accept another school?

    I don't know, it makes me nervous though. I know some schools send out waitlists first (I don't know if SHSU does this) so I've been paranoid that since my items had to be turned in by Monday it might mean I'll be waitlisted (I guess better than being outright denied if it plays out that way).

    I have to respond to my ADN program by Monday, I'm going to submit my intent to enroll with them then if I get a BSN spot I'll just email the director and surrender my seat for an alternate. I'm REALLY hoping to get good news from Sam.

    I just wonder if I should go ahead & submit my fingerprints for the background check through the email I received from the ADN or if I should wait. I'm assuming the blue card from the BON will be able to be submitted to any school that accepts us but I'm not sure.

    Has anybody talked to the school recently or asked about an estimation for results to begin being released?
    I'm on edge over these results.

    hey guys so we need to get a booster shot for hep if the hepatitis b quantitive came back low? Because I don't see that on the website. Don't want to get the shot if its not required
  6. by   gaby_murillo15
    also if someone got the booster shot, how much was the vaccine?
  7. by   spot942
    My hep b titer came back low too but they told me that I had to get the whole vaccine series again. Im getting my second one later this week.

    Yeah mine was due by October 5th as well. It made me sooo anxious lolol.. like maybe I'm the leftovers and on the waitlist haha! This forum gives me a mini heart attack sometimes lol. Good thing is, I was finally able to turn my forms in today... hopefully all is well. It feels like time is literally moving backwards.

    I agree about this website wanting to give you a heart attack, lol.
    I'm glad you were able to get everything turned in! My paperwork deadline was 9/24, I wonder if deadlines were different based off of what was missing?
    Hmmm, who knows!
    I just know I am dying for these decisions and I would love if they came out sooner than the 44 day post application date.

    Does anyone have a changed status under their application? Mine still says "pending review," just thinking that some applications have to have been reviewed by now being so close.
  11. by   Nursegonzalez
    I don't think any applicant statuses will change until they start sending out acceptances/denials/waitlist officially

    I really dislike this wait period lol just last year the decisions went out in 2wks and the app status changed but I understand the program is getting bigger and more people are applying, just super nervous. Good luck to all!!
