    CSU Long Beach Students???

    In case any of you were planning on applying for the Spring, it seems only CSULB students will be eligible: http://www.csulb.edu/colleges/chhs/departments/nursing/ Spring 2010 Update Due to the continuing California budget crisis, CSUs are not accepting transfer applications for Spring 2010. Therefore, to be considered for Spring 2010 admission, applicants must be continuing CSULB students. The School of Nursing regrets that it will not be allowed to consider non CSULB students for the Spring 2010 admission cycle.
  2. I'm registered to take it on September 26. I think you can register for that date until September 4. I don't remember which other dates were available. I just wanted to get it out of the way.

    Okay, so practice with friends/family beforehand. There are tons of potential questions on this website--look them up and think through your answers--it will help you come up with experiences that be might used in answering the questions--or it might help you realize things that you can highlight about yourself that make you a great candidate. Getting more practice beforehand might help you find the confidence you have inside! Believe in yourself and prepare as much as possible so that when the day comes you are ready to demonstrate why you are the best candidate. Going through the questions I found made me think of experiences that I've had that make me a unique applicant--it gave me a reserve of things to say when I was asked on several interviews, "Is there anything else you'd like to tell us about yourself?" Believe in yourself! You worked hard to get through the pre-reqs and you did well--so now you have to show your interviewer that you are ready to rise to the occasion and embrace the challenge of being in an accelerated program. And if you still don't feel confident--fake it--and eventually you'll see that you just had to believe in yourself! I wish you the best!

    Well it seems that CSULB will be offering interviews (during the info session Monalisa Ward said they wouldn't be)--which would give you a better chance of selling yourself. I feel very lucky to have at least one great option, so anything else would just be icing on the cake. I didn't apply to CSUDH--it annoyed me that they required a fee to look at your materials/pre-application fee or something and in addition the fee to apply. I hope you have some good news coming your way in the next few days!

    I live in the suburbs of LA, 31 miles from CSUF. No news might be good news! Good luck!! It seems they rejected people first, then the alternates, and maybe the offers of admission will be last.

    No numbers for the alternate list. The letter says that they offered admission to 36 applicants and that I'll be contacted is space becomes available (up until the week of August 24). I'm not going to take the chance though, I've been admitted to CSUN's A-BSN program, so I'm looking forward to starting that on May 26. Since my goal is to become a nurse practitioner, I think it makes more sense to do a shorter program, get experience, then apply to a MSN program in the specific specialty that is my intended goal.
