    Hi Dani! Thanks for your response. I was able to clear it up. It was my fault for filling out the form late. Since it’s an additional grant it will be posted in 2 weeks time to my account. :) you're totally fine. I know how that is, as I just finished my summer microbiology.. great to have it done before the program starts!

    Hey future classmates!! This thread has been dead for a while but I just thought I’d post and say school is just around the corner and orientation is even closer! I would love to connect with you guys at orientation! also, I just paid for classes. My cal grant hasn’t got through yet so I paid the remainder.. I’m guessing I’ll get a little refund once cal grant goes through but I had some left to pay that pell grant and my loans didn’t cover. Anyone else apply for pell grant.. if so has it gone through? I know it was approved by the school because I had to send in a form.

    Hi! Sorry I haven’t been on this website in a while and this thread is dead lol. I was told all sciences have to be a B- or above to be transferred into the BSN program at the Sacramento campus.

    Chances of getting in Chamberlain?

    Hi! Which campus are you applying to? Some campuses are more competitive than others. For example, I attend the Sacramento campus and I applied with a 3.7 GPA and 97% on the HESI. Our average HESI is above 90% and they say 3.0 or higher for GPA is required for my campus due to only accepting 30 people at a time.

    Hi! Good luck studying for your HESI, I’m sure you will do great!! Thank you for the congrats. When I applied, I was told they don’t look at past health care experience during the decision process. I am a medical assistant and that didn’t help out much. They are mainly looking for a high GPA in your college classes like the pre requisites, or the courses you took for your LVN. Also, another main factor is your HESI score!! The higher the better so just make sure you are super prepared :)! However, I believe if you’re and LVN, you can transfer some credits in if you take a proficiency test(don’t quote me on this I’m not 100% sure) The days and times differ each session. It’s a full time day program and the schedule isn’t set in stone. For example, One session you may be there only 2 days a week, where as another session you may be there 4 days a week plus a clinical day. It really just depends on the classes you’re taking at that time. I have met people that work part time during the program! As long as your boss is super flexible I don’t think you should have any issues. The school may recommend you don’t work full time just because the program is really demanding from what I’ve heard from current students/ graduates.

    Hey everyone! Hope summer is goin well for all of you!! I’m super excited that we get to start school in just over 6 weeks. My summer classes are almost done ( taking microbiology and ethics)!! I just had a question for those who have been on the student portal.. on degree works it shows that I have 2 classes in progress both of which I provided transcripts and transfer credit that was approved. The classes were physiology and human development. I got A’s in both so I know they are transferable just because I’ve done them at the same school they took my other transfer credits from. I have reached out Via email to someone and they said it should be updated shortly, however that was around a week ago.. anyone else having issues with this? I’m thinking it’s because they are waiting on my summer school transcripts and will update them all at once!

    Hey! I had mine last week as well!! I’m super excited after hearing/learning about everything. I’ve already started the process of uploading my vaccination records etc. September can’t come any faster!

    Hey guys!! Just wanted to see if anyone has heard from advisors about what the next steps are after accepting our seats and signing the documents. I’m thinking we will hear some thing in Mid May once the summer people have started.

    @Lady2020 Hey! So at the open house they were really clear that the campus is so new that the BRN board NCLEX pass rates wouldn’t be up until the 3rd class graduated which I believe is sometime this month per one of my friends that already graduated. If you’re curious it shows on their website that their national NCLEX pass rate was around 88-90% I can’t remember exactly. So to me that’s really good! I know people through my job that have went to Sac state for nursing , ARC, Sac city and many other colleges. They all have their opinions on the programs strengths and weaknesses and personally having to teach myself isn’t out of the ordinary because I have done this with most if not all of my pre requisites. I have heard from people I work with and read a lot on this forum that nursing school is basically teaching yourself so to me this isn’t a shock.

    So last year when I applied and was rejected I found out there was about 500-600 applicants by a student so I wouldn’t be surprised if it was around the same if not more this go around. I do know that there are usually more applicants for September than any other semesters!! Now I am curious as too how many people applied lol, but I guess they can’t tell us based on what I saw at the open house I would assume hundreds. I mean it was PACKED

    Yeah same here! Atleast we will find out exact price and dates in June. That gives us about 3 months to prepare for everything which is nice! They do have an online financial aid calculator which is just an estimate but it says i should pay around $41,000 for the whole program and my aid should cover $35,000 of that so if that’s the case I will be ecstatic. I Think I will feel a lot better once I get an actual estimate from the school and what not. I’m not sure of how many people are officially accepted but I know there’s only 25-35 people per cohort.

    @VANurseCA colfax is stunning! I loved auburn as well. I think it just depends on what time we’re gonna have class. With traffic it took me an hour and 56 minutes and then without it took me an hour and 25 minutes. We live really high up in the mountains so it takes a bit longer. It wasn’t worth an hour and a half commute for me especially because I work in Roseville! good luck on your placement tests

    I’m sure you’re going to do great. Since you actually work in the field, I don’t for see any questions you should have TOO hard of a time answering. I’m sure there’s a lot of free online resources out there to brush up on your facts. I’m pretty sure you get around like 20-30 transfer credits(don’t quote me on this) for being an LVN which is huge and will save you a lot of money! Congrats on getting granted a job transfer. That’s exciting. Will you be moving to the Sacramento area too for school or commuting? I just secured an apartment in Roseville as my family lives in Colfax, it would be almost a 2 hour drive for me to get to school!
