    CSU Los Angeles School of Nursing (CSULA Fall 2011)

    (I just finished writing a long and detailed post but, for some reason the website didn't let me post it. So here are the highlights if you have any specific questions pm me.) 1) CSULA does accept most community college statistics classes even if they are not equivalent through assist.org. All you need to do is file a small petition with your adviser. (the process should be explained during orientation). 2) Stop worrying so much about statistics since you don't need it till your second year and it is incredibly easy. 3) CSULA SON encourages people to take an upper division inferential statistics course because it is a requirement for all MSN/DNP programs. 4) @ khrazy5150: I am not a “pie-in-the-sky panderer,” I'm just letting people know about what others have done in the past. The rest of your argument is completely valid. 5) @yjshin328: Are you trying to insinuate that CSU students aren't as smart as “those smart people in UCLA.” Please ask me about this later because I would love to clarify some common misconceptions about the CSU and UC system. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 6)If any of you want a quick laugh, take a look at this video about CSULA (just remember it was intended to be a satire): ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Since the CSUs have massive budget cuts, your class will most likely have the first year's summer quarter off . This means that you will probably graduate 1-2 quarters later than expected or (like our class did) you can probably bargain with the staff to take an extra class every quarter of the second and third year to graduate on time. Congrats to everybody who made it. For those of you who didn't make it, don't feel discouraged, there are options: Many people who didn't make it into a state school went directly into the (expensive) West Coast University BSN program.

    I read the page and I saw the part that said a nutrition class is a prerequisite for the first quarter. It wasn't like this when I applied and I completely agree with you; this is a dumb prerequisite because not many community colleges offer nutrition classes. Maybe someone else in this thread can help you because they probably have to take a nutrition class before the first quarter too. The best person you could talk to about this concern would probably be the associate-director of the program. She always replies promptly and she is very knowledgeable, just don't flood her inbox. You can find her e-mail in the following page: http://www.calstatela.edu/academic/hhs/nursing/office.php If you do e-mail her please post her response.

    I think you have some bad information. You are talking about the four required classes in "related fields"; Anth444 medical anthropology, Human nutrition NTRS250 or NTRS317, psy160 psychology of developing person, and an inferential statistics course HHS400. These are not prerequisites to get into the program and they won't give you any extra points when you apply. I don't think you need the nutrition class during the first quarter, since I know a couple of people who took their nutrition class during the first and second quarter. Although these classes are not required for admissions, you should get through with them as soon as possible. This is because theses classes are either pre-reqs or co-reqs for future nursing classes. For example, in our third quarter, Anthro444 is a co-requisite for family nursing. Statistics is a pre-req for Nursing research, which our class will probably take during the fourth or fifth quarter, and Soc2o1 is a pre-req for Nurs216. When you enter the program, the schedule in which classes are taken may be different but I am almost positive, you don't need it during the first quarter. In fact, I don't think the nutrition class is even a pre-req for any nursing class. To recap, the four aforementioned classes can be taken while your in the program but they should be taken as soon as possible.

    I had a 24/31 and I know a couple of people who got accepted with a 23. That being said, each year is going to be different. It all depends on who you are going to be competing with, remember they are just going to pick the top 50. In my opinion, with a 22 or 23 you probably have good odds.

    According to the admissions website, http://www.calstatela.edu/univ/admiss/deadlines.php , the Enrollment Confirmation Deposit ($100 non-refundable) has to be sent (postmarked) by May 2nd. I wouldn't pay the deposit until you were accepted. Usually everybody is sent their acceptance letters at least a week or so before the deposit is due. If you don't get a letter a week before the deposit is due, call or email the office. You might find it useful to look at what people posted last year on these forums: https://allnurses.com/ca-nursing-programs/csu-los-angeles-475691-page2.html . I can't be more helpful on this topic because I wasn't a transfer student and never had to go through paying the deposit.

    Hello future nurses, I am a member of the class that entered last fall (fall 2010). If you have any questions about the nursing program at CSULA don't be afraid to ask me. For those of you anxious about getting your acceptance letter, I remember I got mine in mid-April so yours may probably arrive soon. I haven't read any of the previous post, but I'm going to try to read the posts after this one.
