    Mass Bay Fall 2011

    Hi snipsnapsnap, if you don't mind me asking but what exactly happened within the program? Also, did you leave and if so, what school are you attending now?

    Traditional Mass BSN programs

    Thank you psulli2010!!! I am applying for January 2012 and I'm going to an information session on May 11th. I am looking into some accelerated programs but I'd rather learn at a slower pace and just spend less money on a traditional program. One of my reasons for picking UMass Boston is because I don't have to wait an entire year to apply and go to school. Any other schools I find or hear about that are willing to take me I'll be applying to them right away

    Traditional Mass BSN programs

    Thank you rdubs for your input!! You have put my mind at ease... psulli2010: Funny enough, both you and rdubs mentioned the very program I was interested in trying to get into. I graduated from Regis College last May and have been taking a lot of classes at MassBay Community College. As of right now, I only have two more pre-reqs to complete and I'm retaking one more in the fall before I send in my application in November. I tried to get into MassBay's program, but I was rejected and started looking at traditional programs with state schools. The only school to give me answers and hope was UMass so I'm definitely hoping that I can get accepted with them. psulli2010 and rdubs: THANK YOU so much for giving me some hope... I really appreciate it a lot

    Brockton Hospital School of nursing

    Hi eap! I don't know much about the situation, but I think you should apply for a program that will reward you a degree. At least with a degree, you'll have more options for work and won't be as restricted when applying for hospitals or other positions. I would only say for you to attend Brockton Hospital if you have no other choice and the tuition fits into your financial needs. I hope this helps you out :)

    Traditional Mass BSN programs

    Has anyone here on this site who already has a Bachelor's degree ever been admitted to a traditional track (four years or less) BSN program in Massachusetts? Any information or advice to give out? I'm just curious to know about how the process all went and my chances of possibly getting accepted. Thank you in advance for your responses... They are all very much appreciated

    I meant to say **hard not all... Sorry about that xD

    Mass Bay Fall 2011

    Yeah Regis' program is well known and really good. They do prepare you for the nursing world that lies ahead. That's all I heard while I was there for all 4 years xD and I did have a lot of friends who were in the program. The only advice I have for your friends is to make sure that they work all and study and give up whatever social life they have. Also, use the library to the fullest extent. I worked there from my sophomore year up until I graduated last May and they truly have the resources needed to succeed. (That place was my second home ) As for the MassBay part, I've heard that too, but I feel like they shouldn't do that because for some people it was the only place they had and for others they have to basically put their lives on hold until they figure out what's going on. I've found that many places do that, regardless of the program that people are trying to get into.

    Question about Prereq's

    Thank you!! Your answer just helped me out a lot with what I need to do. Unfortunately I got C-s in both, but I'll just suck it up and take both this summer ... At least I know I can do better with the previous experience that I have from taking them previously.

    Question about Prereq's

    To anyone who has been accepted, currently in, or already graduated from Curry's ACCEL program or MCPHS Worcester program: Did you have to take Chem 101 (and 102 for Worcester) or were you able to supplement it with a Biochemistry class? Was that accepted or frowned upon at any of the schools? I took Chem 1 and 2 in college and passed, but absolutely hated it (Organic 1 was way worse, but I survived it too). I'm just wondering if there is a way for me to not completely avoid chemistry and still satisfy everyone's 'chemical' need xD... Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated :)

    UMASS Boston

    Don't despair 1982!! I was sad when I didn't get into MassBay's program, but I did find another program that is still taking applications until June 1st for an accelerated BSN program. Its with MCPHS and its in Worcester. The program itself is expensive, but I've read on these boards that you need to have a 2.7 (B-) minimum GPA to remain in the program and all I've heard is good things about it. You should try looking into it (I myself am still debating on whether or not to apply). I wish you luck and I have faith that all those who desire to become nurses will achieve that goal because in the end they truly are meant to be nurses

    Mass Bay Fall 2011

    I agree pristock. My friend who got accepted got her letter on April 1st. I would rather have my letter and just officially receive my answer so that my life isn't being played with or put on hold for anyone. I was shocked to learn that many intelligent students in some of my other classes were also rejected from the program. And when I say intelligent, I mean they might as well have become doctors, PAs or NPs... I'm sorry to have to be this blunt (and I really don't mean to offend anyone or hurt their feelings), but at this point to anyone who hasn't received a letter yet, just either assume you've been rejected or waitlisted. As for me, I guess I'll be looking into Accelerated BSN programs and see who will take me then... (I would laugh if MassBay tried to contact me after all of this)

    To the accelerated (A-BSN) students: Any regrets?

    amen to that pitaya!!!

    Mass Bay Fall 2011

    I had applied to the MassBay Day program and didn't get in. My GPA is a 3.343 and will get higher when the semester ends next month. The strange thing is that I've seen older posts from people who were accepted two or three years ago with GPAs much less lower than mine (like 2.4 and 3.2). When I had gone to orientation last August the dean of nursing had said the minimum GPA to get accepted was a 3.3 and the woman who NEVER answers her phone told me that the minimum GPA accepted this year was a 3.584. She also said they sent my rejection letter and here we are two weeks later and I still don't have it. (She was so rude and insensitive) I already have a BA from Regis College and my friend who got accepted agreed with me that Regis would've accepted me a long time ago. So I have to agree with some of the earlier posts that you never know how the board will view you and your grades and credits. I just wish that they had a more organized system for the way they look at their applicants and the way they handle the entire process. I hope that I don't come off as bitter and please don't get discouraged and keep applying to get in. To those who have been accepted to either the Day or Evening program CONGRATS!!! I wish you all the best :)

    Accelerated Boston nursing schools/programs

    I hope you get in!! :) I've looked at Simmons and I agree its too much and I refuse to take Organic Chemistry (I hated it in college and would never take it again). Again, I feel that MGHIHP is expensive and the price seems to go up every year and some of their requirements make me feel as though my application would never even be considered. I picked Curry and UMass Boston because if there is snow I can still take the MBTA to class and not have to miss anything. As for MCPHS Worcester, I like how often their application process occurs, since you don't have to wait a whole year to apply/reapply to their program. Also, I'd be okay with moving out there to go to school if I got accepted. It's still early for me to look at other schools before I start applying so I'm hoping for somewhere good and affordable
