    Nice! Good luck with finishing the rest of your app!
    If you dont mind me asking, what does your prereq gpa look like? I'm nervous mine isn't strong enough :'(

    I don't mind you asking because that's what I've been worried about too! So I have a 3.5 for my DTA & a 3.3 for pre-reqs. I know that they'll be people with higher GPA's but I'm done with all my classes. So I'm hoping the fact that I don't have any standing classes will help. My friend (who's also applying) has a friend through her church that got into the program with a 3.4! Sucks cause Bio160 is what's making my GPA so low, but I did significantly better in all my other bios so Im hoping they care moreso about the A&P/Micro.

    My friend got into the program with a 3.3 overall and 3.2 so i still have hope since my GPA looks about the same. I really wish they allowed more retakes because i have 1 C+ that's weighing my prereq GPA down....
    Do you have a lot of experience in the healthcare field?

    As of right now I have about a little over 400 hours working as a CNA! I've been to informational meetings about SU transfers & they said that experience doesn't exactly guarantee acceptance. However, it does show them that you have a good idea about what you're getting into. They also said that the best way to utilize your experience in your application is to find a way to incorporate it in the nursing essay!

    I am applying also! Although I don't believe I have much of a chance. Due to my terrible grades from community college many years ago...

    I've applied as well. I have a 3.6 Cumm and a 3.87 pre-req GPA. I did have to retake Life Span and Stats because I dropped out that quarter which I know will impact. I think I wrote a good essay though... hopefully! Good luck to all!

    My overall gpa is around 2.6. My prereq gpa is 3.8. I worked for 5 years in healthcare in military and for 6 months as an emt. I hope my essays are good enough!

    Hey everyone! I am a current BSN student at Seattle University, I was accepted fall 2017 as a transfer student. If you have any questions about the application process feel free to ask!

    Hello everyone! I've been waiting to be able to apply to SU for years now! I've finished all the pre-reqs and have all As, a B for Chem, and a C for Anatomy (sigh). I'm mainly worried about that B & C having a toll on the rest of my application. Though, I also have about 500+ hours of healthcare experience and have rotated through Oncology, ER, Cardiac Telemetry, L&D, and Postpartum. Super excited (and nervous!) to go through this process with you all!

    Hey! I'm currently applying as well! I applied last year and did not get an interview but I have retaken 2 courses since then so fingers crossed! U have a prior bachelors degree from UW, an overall cumulative of around 3.3 and prereq cumulative around 3.4. I have 3,000+ hours of CNA and PCT experience in a hospital. Anyone else applying for the second time?

    Hey Rivercat! Just two questions. 1. When you did your resume, did you include non-healthcare related volunteer work? 2. How was the interview?
