12 month Accelerated nursing student!!

ifoundnemo's Latest Activity

  1. I was recently accepted into a MSN program and am finding the task of securing a preceptor very daunting! I did not think it would be so hard, but I have not been able to find anyone with availability for the Fall 2014 semester! I was hoping that someone on the board was interested or knew someone who was interested in taking a student! I am currently enrolled in an Adult Health Nurse Practitioner program and need to find a preceptor (ANP, FNP, or MD) to complete 120 hours with!! I am located in the Huntington/Northport area. If anyone has any suggestions for me or has precepted with someone before who is willing to take students, I'd greatly appreciate it!!

    GPA for admission to Stonybrook

    Stony Brook's program is extremely competitive. Even if you are accepted to Stony Brook and major in pre-nursing you are not guaranteed a spot into the program. Look at the requirements on their website :)

    I'm currently in the program if anyone has any questions. The schedule is about right just take out Ethical Frameworks which is no longer required and replace it with "Health Policy" 1 cr in Spring. The poster was right, don't panic before you know it it will be the end!

    It doesn't matter - if you reapply a second time and are not qualified they are not going to let you in, I know a few people who applied twice and still weren't accepted. The first time my application wasn't even looked at because of a technicality regarding wrong dates posted on the website. Good luck

    What are the chances ill get into the stony brook ?

    You should definitely not give up, yes Stony Brook is an extremely competitive program but the good thing about Stony Brook is that they do not look at grades alone - they look at a mix of GPA, reference letters,essay, pre-requisite grades, volunteer experience etc. Because you do not have all your pre-reqs done and are currently retaking some because of poor grades you may have a harder time getting in. I suggest doing what you can though, retake them, if you don't get in reapply next year! Always have a backup from another school because there are very limited slots. Good luck, don't be discouraged by others.

    I didn't have much volunteer experience at all - I am sure it puts you at a great advantage if you have volunteer experience in the health care setting because it shows that you know what the nursing field is about. However, volunteering is way different.

    I got my acceptance letter I believe in Mid December, it was definitely before Christmas, however I know there are some people who got their letters after Christmas. You definitely have a chance of getting in. Stony Brook doesn't look solely at GPA they really look at all factors including GPA, pre-reqs, reference letters, and your essay. My GPA was not stellar - I had a 3.6 overall GPA and my science pre-reqs were not a 4.0! Ofcourse the higher your grades are the better it looks, but I believe they look at all factors. Goodluck :)

    I'm also currently in the SB nursing program, 1 year class :) Good luck everyone! My only advice is to make sure that you apply to more than one nursing program, apply for the two year program too! I was denied my first time around, so don't give up. They honestly do look at every aspect of you. There decision is not based solely on grades or previous majors. I think that being a well rounded, dedicated individual is the main thing they are looking for.

    It does not matter. As long as you are a well rounded student. They look at essay, GPA, pre-reqs, and recommendations. I'm currently a student at Stony Brook and we have people who were English Majors to people who have master's in biology :)

    Why is nursing school so darn expensive

    The price is the same for 2nd degree students as it is for first degree students. The only difference is second degree students are not allotted as much financial aid.
  14. I was accepted into a VERY competitive accelerated nursing program with a B+ in A&P 2, B in A&P1 and a B in Microbio and a C+ in Chemistry and A's in my two other science requirements. I put my ALL into every one of my classes, my school was just extremely difficult. My overall GPA was a 3.8 though. I had a great essay, great recs, and volunteered. As long as you try your hardest and have great accompanying documents you should be fine :) Don't freak, grades are really important but if you have the drive and show the want you will be okay.
  15. You know I called the health center and they told me that I couldn't have my titers done there because I was not a student yet. Who knows!! If you look on solar system it says the classes are from June 29th to August 20th - I don't know if that is indicative of a break or if we start fall classes right away. I want to know about supplies toooo! And the scholarship - did you apply for the scholarship?? I Still haven't heard anything.
  16. It was in the admission's packet, it has red on the side. If you can't find it let me know and I'll let you know what's on there. It's basically that you need malpractice insurance 1mil/3mil need to show positive titers for a few things need some extra shots if you haven't had them need health insurance or you can use the one the school provides :)
