    CSULA fall 2020 Psych NP

    Congratulations on your path to your BSN! I’m not sure about other programs, but CSULA requires an overall GPA of 3.0. My GPA was 3.2. I have 3 years RN experience The GPA is based of your nursing GPA and your GPA from your BSN. If WGU gives 3.0 if you pass, as long as your overall GPA is 3.0 or greater, you should be fine. Feel free to ask anymore questions.

    CSULA fall 2020 Psych NP

    I just wanted to update my post. I interviewed On 3/6 and received my acceptance letter on Wednesday, 3/18/20. I wasn’t sure if they would still proceed with sending the letters with everything that’s going on with Covid-19. I’m very grateful to be starting in the fall. I will update my posts as the process progresses just in case anyone has questions about the program and process like I did.

    CSULA fall 2020 Psych NP

    Hi, I’ve searched allnurses for posts for CSULA’s fall 2020 psych NP program and haven’t found any, so I’m starting a post for those of us who have applied to this upcoming fall semester. Anyone received their interview for this Friday, March 6th?

    As good as, Better or Worse than you thought it would be...

    Hi can you share with me why you do not like it? Why it was a mistake to go into nursing? Thank you!

    Thanks for the clarification...that's even better! My class starts next month also! I accepted your request. I look forward to keeping in touch through our adventure

    Thanks for your response. Yes, my plan is to continue to work full time until I finish my prerequisites and get accepted into NS. Once I am accepted, then I'll stop working.

    Oh my gosh!!! Reading your post gave me the chills! Your plan sounds so similar to mine, even my anticipated started time-- fall 2012. I didn't even think of becoming a CNA....that is a GREAT idea! I live in Los Angeles County, I'm going to look into that. Thank you soooo much for sharing your plan with me and I wish you so many blessings in your decision and career path! My husband makes as much as I do now. We too will have to pay for his company's benefits. Mine were also free from my job, but like you said, it's much cheaper than paying for COBRA. Maybe we can keep in touch and encourage each other :) I will enroll in A&P I next month. How difficult is the class and working full time?

    Very good question. I'll have to look into that.

    Thank you so much for your words of encouragement! My husband is very supportive and I want a fulfilling job and the position that I am is not fulfilling....yes, it pays the bills plus more, but is that everything?? I don't think it is. Not to mention, I will be able to spend more time with my kids while I'm off. Once, again thank you for sharing your insight and experience with me.

    Yes, very good retirement plan and great job stability. However, I can also work as a RN for a government entity and receive the same benefits.

    Thanks for responding! Are you currently working as a nurse? If so, was it hard to get a job as a nurse?

    Are you now done with NS? How did everything work out for you?

    Thanks for your response! No, my current job isn't related to health care. I was thinking the same thing about the possibility that my request not getting approve because of that. But, I'm praying for a miracle. Actually, one of my co-workers went on leave to take his bar's exam to become an attorney and our job is not in the legal field and it was approved. If I have to resign, then I would probably do so.
  16. Hello, I'm planning on returning to school this fall to complete my prereqs and once I'm done and actually accepted into a nursing program, I'm planning on taking a leave of absence from work for 2 years. I make good money in the job that I am in and I work for a government agency. However, I really desire to be a nurse and in order to do so, I must leave my job. I am married and have a baby and a teenager. My question is...for anyone that has either quit or left there high paying job for nursing school, how did you do it? Was it difficult to survive? How did you prepare and once you finished nursing school, were you able to find a new job? I would appreciated everyone's advice or comments. Thanks!
