    Stony Brook Accelerated BSN Class of 2014

    I also cleared the waitlist, but had to turn it down as I've already accepted admission to Binghamton. Good luck to everyone in the program!

    Congrats spiritedkidd! Tough choice -- they're both great schools. Either one will be awesome, I'm sure. Good luck!

    Binghamton Applicants- BAT Fall 2013

    Great to see more have been accepted! For those who have received their letters already, did it happen to mention the start date for the program?

    This may seem corny to some, but I thought I'd share. On my commute home tonight I was feeling down on myself, wondering what I could have done to get a "Yes" from Stony Brook instead of a "Maybe." I logged into Pandora as I always do, and I was nearly knocked out of my seat when Cher's "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me" came on streaming. So for all those not accepted to Stony Brook, or those waitlisted like me, or even those accepted to the program (who might be depressed about something else! lol), I offer up these lyrics, because it's hard to feel sad when listening to Cher. :) Feeling broken Barely holding on But there's just something so strong Somewhere inside me And I am down but I'll get up again Don't count me out just yet I've been brought down to my knees And I've been pushed way past the point of breaking But I can take it I'll be back Back on my feet This is far from over You haven't seen the last of me.

    Hi all, Just received an email that I am on the alternate list. I suppose that means there's still hope, right? (At least I'm telling myself so! lol) Fingers crossed!

    Binghamton Applicants- BAT Fall 2013

    I chose Fall 2013 as well, and when I spoke with admissions a couple of months ago they confirmed I was listed as applying to the accelerated program. I think we're okay.

    Hi eca2493! I applied as well, although I'm unclear as to when the program actually begins. The application for BAT says Fall 2013, but I thought the accelerated program begins in the summer (sometime in May)? I guess we'll know soon enough! Good luck!

    Hi EveryDayAGift! I was searching this site hoping to find some info on Binghamton's BAT program and I was lucky enough to find your post. Thank you so much for all your info! I have been considering applying this September for next spring's class, and your post has made my decission a lot easier. Congrats on your upcoming graduation!

    With regards to a question posted a couple pages back about hospital experience: I'm a classmate of Paco's, and I came into this program with absolutely no hospital experience. I think the only thing I had was about 10 hours of shadowing a physician assistant (another career I was looking into). So I wouldn't worry too much about experience. A lot of our classmates this year are coming from completely unrelated careers (teachers, business, even an actor). So don't worry too much about that! --- Fantastic! Thanks so much for the info! ---

    Thanks for taking the time to reply, Paco! After I wrote my last post I came across a volunteer program at NY Presbyterian (in the ER dept) that looks promising -- I'll email them my application tomorrow. If that doesn't pan out I was thinking I would look into volunteer opportunities in hospice care or nursing homes, or perhaps even visiting homebound seniors at home. My problem is that I currently work a full-time job, from 9-5:00pm Monday-Friday. A lot of the hospitals I've contacted so far are looking for volunteers with midweek/daytime availability. However, NY Presbyterian seems to have evening shifts available during the week (6p-10p), so that would be ideal. I just noticed on SBU's website that they've updated the pre-regs for 2013 applicants to include Lifespan Development and Statistics (as you said in an earlier post they were going to do!) I'm taking Lifespan Development now through SUNY online, so I'll just have to find a Statistics class to take over the summer. Nursing will be a second career for me (after 20+ years in the travel industry) and I'm determined to be an RN by the time I'm 45. To reach that goal I'll need to get into SBU in 2013, so I'm going to do whatever it takes! Thanks again for all the info.
