    Stony Brook University - Fall 2012 applicants

    Hi... Any one out there has any advice?
  3. Good morning ladies and gentelmen, My ultimate goal is to get into Stony Brook University school of nursing :redbeathe. So congradulations to all of you that have been accepted for fall 2011! I have a question for those who have gotten accepted for fall 2011, future Stony Brook applicants or simply any one who has an opinion toward my career path. I attend a cuny and I am looking to apply for SBU 2012, by that time I would have completed everything except micro. The admission commitee will not see my grades for that final semester. I failed anatomy and I feel like that will be another reason to disqualify me. So this are my choices. A) If I get lucky I would get accepted for fall 2012.. Yay no worries :) B) If I do not get accepted, I would be done by spring 2012 with all my pre-reqs completed to attend SB, plus an associated of science in science. This means I will apply for SBU 2013 class. The admission committee will have the additional spring 2012 semester to review plus fall 2012 courses. For fall 2012, I plan to transfer to hunter college and go under the general biology degree, so when I apply again to SBU fall 2013 nursing class I will have science courses taken at hunter college that can possibly make up for the failed anatomy class. All goes to plan I get accepted into SBU 2013 nursing program :) C) again, if I do not get accepted my other option is instead of going to hunter college and taking biology classes, I would transfer fall 2012 to Stony Brook University and work on my bachelor science degree in health science. ( Has any one taken this degree in SBU? ) and still apply for SBU fall 2013 nusing class. Or... D) Complete my bachelor of health science at Stony Brook University, ace this degree and apply to SBU school of nursing( I have read of students who got accepted with this degree into SB school of nursing.) Thank you so much, any insight would be taking into consideration. I really want to attend Stony Brook University school of nursing. Thanks for taking the time to read my post I look forward to your replies. Is anyone out there looking to apply for SBU fall 2012 class?

    Stony Brook BSN - Summer/Fall 2011 Applicants

    moocow1213, so did you apply to the program while you were a student in stony brook university? Do you think that made a difference that you got good grades in pharmacology. How long did it take you to complete all that and get into their nursing program? Thank you so much for your response :)

    A little off topic....but MONEY matters....

    Why don't you work in phelobotomy they make more money than CNA's. It is very admirable that you do all that and still go to school to get your degree. You are definitely a super women. :bowingpur
  7. I have read that CCNE is more prestigious and respected through out america. CCNE is also mostly for obtaining your BSN and applying to the navy. The NLN is mostly for Associates degree as an RN or LPN. Do you guys prefer one over the another. Also when you apply for a job do they take in account what you are accredited by. Thanks!

    Blacks/African Americans are 15.9% of the New York State Population But... ...in the Health Professions Workforce in New York State: Only 5% of Physicians are Black/African American Only 5% of Physician Assistants are Black/African American Only 8.9% of Registered Nurses are Black/African American Only 2% of Dentists are Black/African American Hispanics/Latinos are 15.1% of the New York State Population But... ...in the Health Professions Workforce in New York State: Only 4% of Physicians are Hispanic/Latino Only 5% of Physician Assistants are Hispanic/Latino Only 2.2% of Registered Nurses are Hispanic/Latino Only 4% of Dentists are Hispanic/Latino Data source: Health Resources and Services Administration, This is a real shocker as minorities we need to represent, become role models and increase the number of helath care professionals from under represented groups.:redbeathe

    Stony Brook BSN - Summer/Fall 2011 Applicants

    Wow Paco69> THANK YOU SO MUCH! I have two internships in an emergency room and another around NYC plus i have been volunteering since January. I cant wait i don't see myself in any other place but STONY BROOK UNIVERSITY. The thing is that i already messed up in my anatomy class and got a D+ now i am re taking it pretty sure i will get an A. After i apply i will already have my associates in biology. I will be taking upper level bio classes and i hope to get A's as well. My question is that do they acknowledge these courses even though they are not part of their curriculum. They are still biology classes so i hope they do. I can not wait, all this hard work i am putting out write now is simply for SBU. Thank you for being so helpful and congrats on pursing your degree here in New York (best decision Ever!!) :yelclap:

    Hi ladies and gentlemen!! First off congratulations to everyone! I 'am a 2012 hopeful. I am finishing up my Pre-reqs for stony brook. If you ladies and gentleman care to share with me what you think made you stand out as an applicant. Stony Brook receives thousands of applications and they only pick 60 that is just really intense.:vlin:. also do you think it matter what school you come from from? For those of you have gotten accepted what do you believe made the admission board say "WOW" we want her/him! Thanks guys:redbeathe

    Life as a minority in nursing

    you are completely right. I think it is important to know at least a second language if you are going into nursing. The reason being that the majority of population in NYC are minorities coming from underserved areas and one out of four new yorkers dont have health insurance so they need to be seen by doctors and nurses. Bellevue has a free clinic that sees people without health insurance and the majority of the popullation that comes in are hispanic so i think you are right. Speaking spanish is definitly a plus.

    Anyone taking pre req's at Medgar Evers College?

    yes it seems confusing make sure you have all the questions written down before you see your advisor. It all depend what biology sequence you are taking. I am in the 251 route. 251 represents anatomy 252 physiology and 261 microbiology. i am not sure how the 150 sequence works. All i can say is if you are going to take a class in the summer it will be chemistry and physiology take chem in the first session and physiology (A&PII) in the second half. Than you have all semester to worry about microbiology.
