Hello! Has anyone applied to the PLU BSN program for fall of 2022? I applied as an associate's-degree seeking high school senior and was wondering if anyone has heard back. I heard everyone is receiving decisions at different times, so if you could post any updates that would be great. Thanks!

Hi Mopiu,

I am applying as a transfer student with a pre-nursing degree. I submitted my application 10/7. I got an email saying I will get my decision letter April 1st.

When did you get the email? And what is a division letter? Does that mean you got in?

I meant decision not division sorry. No, that doesn’t mean I got in. The decision letter will say if I did or not. I got the email about 3 weeks ago.

I applied as a transfer student and also got an email stating that decisions would be sent out April 1st. 
This is my 3rd time applying to PLU, although the first time I did not have all of my prerequisites complete. Anyone else having a hard time getting in to a program?

This is my first time applying. My friend who got accepted and already graduated from the program said they really look at your recommendation letters, essay responses and experience. She had a 3.5 GPA which isn’t that competitive but she did get very good recommendation letters and worked as a CNA before applying. May I know your academic background and experience? 

Mine…

-CNA for 3 years.

- 3.8 GPA.

-good recommendation letters from employer and Microbiology instructor (where I got a 4.0).

- Member of PTK Honors society.

- Worked as a medical interpreter and HCA before.

Hey everybody,

I just created an account. Following the thread now. I have applied and also received the email stating decisions will be sent out April 1st. This is my first time applying, also applying as a transfer and I wanted to cast a wide net so I applied to PLU, SPU, SU, UW, and Saint Martins. I’m a bit skeptical of when they give an exact date, but I think it’s just anxiety talking LOL. Anyways, I got denied to Saint Martins BSN program on February 15th. I got accepted to Seattle University’s BSN on 3/10. SPU said decisions would be made mid-march, but I have not gotten an update from them yet. UW isn’t until mid April, and of course PLU April 1st. Here are my stats, and I will keep everyone updated on any changes!

- patient care technician psychiatric unit/emergency room- 6 months

-caregiver/home health aide- 4 years

-nursing GPA- 4.0

-overall GPA- 3.87

Hi Tj,

I didn’t consider applying at universities that are an hour or so away. Can’t imagine the daily commute plus traffic. If I don’t get into PLU I’ll apply at TCC or Pierce. Congrats on your acceptance at SU! You and I have similar stats I hope we both get into our dream program!

Hi everyone,

Good luck to everyone and I hope we all get accepted. This is my first time applying. Does anyone know anyone who attended the nursing program at PLU who can tell me about the program and what to expect or any alumni students? I have a couple questions to ask. I heard the same thing about decision making process which is April 1st l.

I submitted my application In February and hoping to hear April 1. I know my GPA is at least 3.5 I’m just not 100% sure because I took my Pre- Reqs at 3 schools (due to moving husband in military). I’m actually enrolled to start Microbiology next wk at Pierce. I hope that I can still get a decision with that being the only pre-req I haven’t finished. I have great letter of recommendations and have worked as a Medical Assistant and Phlebotomist for 14 years.

Hi thart 

I spoke to my counselor on Monday and he told decision has been made on my application and I will find out April 1st. I also did the early admission before the Feb 1st deadline. I don’t know if this helps.
