    OHSU 3 Year BSN, 2019 Fall Start!!!

    I don’t think they do. They did mention that if you don’t get an invite, you can email them two weeks from now and see what you can do to improve your application. So I’m thinking if two weeks passes, then I probably didn’t get one. Lol

    Congrats. I wonder when the Ashland interviews go out. Fingers crossed.

    I haven’t done an interview in a long time so it was eye opening to see how bad I was in expressing my thoughts under stress. Therefore once I get an invitation to the real one, I’ll be practicing a lot more for it than I’ve done for past interviews. Some of the questions they asked were why do you want to be a nurse, why ohsu, and how do you handle conflicts with others. For the Ashland campus, the interview involves 4 face to face interviews with different interviewer and question, and 1 proctored essay. Each question you’ll get 8 mins to answer.

    Haha I actually am. I’m a first generation immigrant if that has anything to do with it. I currently have a 3.81 GPA now since they don’t English into consideration if you have a previous bachelors. I also have A&P III remaining so hopefully that won’t hurt me too much. I went to the mock interview last week and learnt a lot. Can’t wait to see whether I get an invite next week and hopefully if I do, my interview helps me get in. I just need to work on my interview skills and don’t let anxiety get in the way of explaining to them why I truly want to be a nurse and work in healthcare.

    I have already accepted that I’m not getting an invitation. Lol Anyone else get an invite to the mock interviews? And who is going to the Ashland mock interview? Or those who have done it, how did it go?

    Thank you. Do you what type of interview it will be and the types of questions they ask?

    Anyone know if there is anyway I can change my application from Ashland to Portland?

    Same. The wait is killing me. I’ll be fine knowing even if I’ve been denied just so I can move on and plan my next steps. Haha

    OHSU BSN Fall 2019

    If that is true then you made my day. I currently have a 3.81 gpa if I diregard my English grades. Thank you.

    OHSU BSN Fall 2019

    Awesome. Thank you. I have a BS in biology but my gpa for that degree suck. I am currently taking A&P and Lifespan Psychology at a community college right now and have taken all my other prereqs already. I have a 3.6 prereq gpa as well but don't have much experience unless you count working at a clinical lab. lol If I don't get in this time, I'll probably retake my English classes since those two are the only prereqs classes where I have my Bs in. I wish you the best of luck and I feel your application looks solid especially with all the work experience.

    OHSU BSN Fall 2019

    Anyone here applying to OHSU for fall 2019? I am currently finishing up all my prerequisites and will be applying to the Ashland campus for Fall 2019. I still have A&P II and Lifespan Psychology remaining and currently have a 3.6 prereq GPA. I also have a bachelors of science degree in biology but due to the low gpa, I'll be going through it the traditional way. Might be a little early but I figured might as well make a thread and connect with other applicants or get advice from past OHSU students. What are you guys' stats and is 3.6 a competitive gpa?
  13. I'll be applying to the OHSU BSN program (Ashland) in the next few weeks and would like some advice/evaluation on it. A&P I: A- A&P II: ~ Nutrition: A Microbiology with Lab: A ENG 101: B ENG 102: B- Stats: A- Lifespan Psychology: ~ Electives (Sociology): A- Electives (Humanities): A These are the prerequisites for the program I'm applying to. I'll be taking A&P II and lifespan psychology next quarter. I currently have a 3.65 prerequisites GPA and English is the only class that's bringing me down. English is not my native tongue and I've written a letter explaining my cultural and family background, so I wonder if the admission board will overlook the low English score. I also have a bachelors degree in biology but with a low cumulative GPA which is the reason why I am going the traditional route. I wonder if I am still competitive enough to be accepted into the OHSU nursing program. Also I have only one college in mind that I'll be applying to as of now but I wouldn't mind traveling and going to another school if I don't get accepted here. What other schools are there where I can get accepted with my prerequisites gpa? Thank you.
  14. Thanks tony. I decided to apply to a BSN program which only takes my prerequisites and I currently have a 3.6 GPA. The program I plan on applying to is very competitive with an average 3.8 in the past years, but your comment reduced my anxiety. I plan on doing my best and if that's not enough, I'll apply out of state.
  15. Thanks Mj Reid. I decided against an accelerated program as well since I feel I won't get accepted anywhere. I decided on doing a BSN degree instead and decided to take it slow rather than rush it so I can maintain a good GPA during nursing school and later on move on to becoming a NP.
