    Georgetown Accelerated BSN hopefuls -- fall 2013

    We have people of all different ages in our cohort with the average age being somewhere between 25 and 30. There are also people of all different majors so I don't think that really plays a role. It is more important how you do on your specific prereqs for the program and they want to know WHY you are choosing to go into nursing and know that you are truly committed to it. Previous healthcare experience is probably preferred, but definitely not mandatory, as many people had none. Hope this helps!
  2. Thank you for getting back to me! I ended up choosing Georgetown because it was a more established program and I got offered a scholarship, but I did hear that Penn State's program is starting to look a lot better since they changed some staff. I hope your experience was good, and congrats on graduation!

    Georgetown Accelerated BSN hopefuls -- fall 2013

    Hi! I am in Georgetown's accelerated program right now, and I started this fall. I had a pretty competitive GPA from my original degree, but I know that there are other people in my program who did not. Personally, I think they are looking more at the grades that you got for the required prereqs (micro, A&P, etc). They want to know that you will be able to handle the nursing courses and the fast pace of the program. Do well in the prereqs and focus on the application itself. Your previous GPA shouldn't matter all that much.

    Backpack & Zuca or other rolling bag?

    Thank you so much for your response Tag2007! I have been swooning over them but now I will probably hold off and see what I'll need once I start. Your update was very helpful!

    Washington Hospital Center

    I am trying to decide if I want to take a scholarship from WHC to attend Georgetown's accelerated nursing program this fall. I would commit to working at WHC for three years after the program. I would love to hear about your overall opinion and experience working there!

    ABSN Georgetown Spring 2013

    Georgetown Accelerated BSN hopefuls -- fall 2013

    Thank you so much for your response! I appreciate it :) I am definitely leaning more and more towards Georgetown every day!! However, they just told me I need 1 more credit for Chemistry..what chemistry classes are still open for the and only one credit?? NONE! Of couuurrrsseee.. So until I figure that out, things are on hold for me. One option I've considered is trying to start in the spring instead. Does anyone know if we can defer our start date AND the scholarship for a semester?

    Georgetown Accelerated BSN hopefuls -- fall 2013

    I'm having a really hard time choosing between Georgetown with the scholarship, and Penn State Harrisburg's accelerated program. I live close to PSU Harrisburg that I got my first degree from Penn State, so it would be a much easier transition. However, I know that Georgetown's program is really good and I liked WHC, but I am scared about some negative personal experiences I've heard about Gtown and I'm nervous about the long commitment to DC. PLEAAAASSSEEE does anyone want to weigh in, or better yet, make my decision for me? Does anyone know anything about the Penn State program or anyone who has done it there? ANY honest information for opinions would be MUCH appreciated!! I am desperate!

    I feel ya!! Honestly, I think this is a little ridiculous at this point.. Maybe they're monitoring this forum and giving us a final test of patience to see how we do Haha..I FAIL

    If we don't hear about the scholarships some time today I might actually lose my mind...

    Georgetown Accelerated BSN hopefuls -- fall 2013

    Professor T, thanks for your response! I also wish that the decisions were released at the same time!! What I meant is that I wasn't sure if they were going to notify us either way.. Will they e-mail the people who aren't offered the scholarship as well, to tell them they weren't chosen?

    Does anyone know if we'll hear about the scholarship whether we got it or not? I forget if they mentioned that..
