    Hi there! I still have to take physiology and I am retaking chemistry to bump my grade up from a B to an A lol. I need to take the TEAS still also. I'm a 2nd bachelors student.

    Overall GPA: 3.65
    Prereq GPA: 3.8
    TEAS V Score: N/A
    Supplemental Criteria: For health-related work I currently have 210 volunteer hours from various departments that all include patient contact. Currently I am still volunteering in an Emergency Department so I should have at least 60 more hours by the time I submit my application. I was also just hired for a full-time position in a hospital that allows me to make non-clinical contact with patients. I also have 41 hours of multicultural work in an Alzheimer's unit at a nursing home.

    Hi everyone,

    Overall GPA: 3.93
    Prereq GPA: 4.00 (if this doesn't count nutrition...nutrition is the only class i've ever gotten a B in ;___; )
    TEAS V Score: n/a taking it next month
    Supplemental Criteria: Bilingual, economically disadvantaged.

    Has anyone else noticed that the program went from 3 years previously (from what I last checked earlier this year) to 2 years for the fall of 2014?

    Additionally, is anyone else a little worried about SFSU's NCLEX pass rates?...

    I know this is for the Fall 2013. Congratulations to those who got in and are still in the Program!! I recently got accepted for the Spring of 2014. I was wondering if anyone had any advice regarding housing (I am not enrolled for on-campus housing), how the program is, as well as working while attending school. Are you guys going to graduate in two years? When I look online I see 4 semesters. Anything you can tell me about SFSU's BSN program would be awesome! Thank you!

    Has anyone heard anything? I assume they'll be interviewing students in the middle of the pack. From what I've heard they've already tossed out people they aren't even considering, and decided who they'll be accepting no matter what. My guess is they'll be interviewing those who don't fit into either of those categories to round out the program.
