VCU ABSN Summer 2019

  1. Hey guys!!

    I am applying into VCU ABSN's Program for Summer 2019! I am excited and very hopeful to start this application journey. My GPA is not the best. I was a biology major prior to deciding that a nursing is right for me! I am currently a scribe (1 yr experience) and am applying to work as a CNA at a local hospital.

    I have already taken stat, physiology+lab, and medical micro+ lab; Finished with B's. I take Anatomy and life psych..

    Although I have started my app, I am on the fence on waiting to apply next cycle or to continue with this application because of my GPA and not having anatomy complete.

    I would LOVE to hear from other applicants for advice and support!

    Hey! Glad someone started this thread! I submitted my application back in June. Last I heard is that they send out all admissions decisions in November. I reached out again this week to confirm. Once I hear more I'll update!

    Thank you for starting this thread! I just applied in July and am so nervous to hear back! Does anyone know around when we should be hearing from them?

    They don't send out admissions decisions until mid Nov is what I was told by head of admissions.

    Hey! I applied too and am super nervous because I've heard it's competitive (like 25% acceptance) but this program is my first choice. On their site it says notification is Nov 15 so 6 more weeks! I'm in the same boat as you: previous bio major, my GPA is probably my weakest point. I go to UR. I have 2 years scribe experience, and completed 2 internships abroad in Spain. I'm into fitness and am a supervisor at our gym, am a competitive bodybuilder, and work with campus health & wellness programs; I'm hoping my health&fitness angles/bilingual qualities will help me. Are you applying anywhere else?

    I'm also a scribe with 2.5 years experience. I graduated with my B.S. in Biology. I'm a volunteer EMS. However, my GPA is also my weakest. I was previously a chemistry major transitioned to biology. I called the office of admissions and they said people who are accepted and declined into the program will receive an email on November 15. I'm super nervous!

    Hi everyone, a little bummed but I was waitlisted from VCU. Congrats to everyone who got in!

    I got waitlisted too, do you know how many got waitlisted? I wish they would share stats with us - how many applied, how many accepted, how many waitlisted. I wish you the best! We may still get in, don't lose hope!

    Waitlisted as well but holding on hope! I called this morning and they won't let you know of your position on the list. :/
