    Hey Court 2889 - I was just accepted and my recommendation was also from a physician, if that makes you feel better!

    @born2bns: My first choice is OHSU, but I will place a deposit at UW to hold my spot since their notifications aren't until April.

    Lillyambers, yes I received a call. I'm sure it take a while to call all 48 people, so hang in there! Born2bns, I am in CA, too! Bay Area. What about you?

    I'm in, too!!! What a relief! What about OHSU, spaceshuttleboy?

    Sorry about the formatting! I'm not sure why that happened!

    Hey lillyambers, The website says that the ABSN is $8,865/quarter. I am guessing that with other fees and such, it will total about $50,000.

    OHSU (in Portland, OR) is my top choice at the moment and, like Penn, their decisions come out pretty late. It's frustrating when all I want to do is plan out the next couple of years! To which program were you accepted? At least you have comfort of having at least one acceptance! Must feel pretty good!

    Hi LREYES2, Thanks for your reply! I was wondering when someone might actually respond to this thread! As for interviews, I was feeling anxious, too. I looked at some of the timing of last year's interviews and it looks like most of them took place at the end of January/early February. I guess we just have to be patient!

    OHSU's Accelerated BSN 2015 cohort

    While I did see the general information about the interviews, I didn't realize that they would only occur over the course of two days! I wonder how many people they will interview. It can't be all that many, given the short time frame. I waver back and forth between OHSU and UW. It would definitely be a tough decision in the miraculous event that I am admitted to both. What is your first choice? UW, right? For any specific reasons?

    Is it unnecessarily complicated? Or shockingly minimalist? Haha I feel like the biggest challenge is overcoming the fact that they want hardly any information about me as an applicant. Just give me a couple of pages to bs about myself, OHSU! Also, I continue to have anxiety about missing an element of the application. I am serious when I ask someone to please confirm that they uploaded the same documents: Supplemental App, Coursework Form, Course Descriptions (if necessary). Thanks!

    Hey everyone, I was looking to connect with other people who have applied for Penn's BSN Second Degree Program. I received an email stating that interviews for the program would occur between November 2014 and January 2015. Has anyone heard back about an interview yet? Best wishes!

    Hey Rrs14, Yes, from what I can tell, there are no essays for the ABSN-Portland applicants. The only items I uploaded were the Supplemental Application, Coursework Form, and a document I put together with course descriptions since my courses were out of state. Other than that, it looks like they just go off of GPA! Somebody please correct me if I am wrong!

    I agree that it was easier than I anticipated. The only hard part was squeezing lots of info into a brief two pages of space and one hour time limit (I tend to be long-winded). Did they say that there were only 160 applicants this year? That seems like a large decrease from the number I've heard in years past.

    I'm only applying to two other schools: Penn and OHSU. I figure I can broaden the field next year, if need be. Hopefully, I'll just get in this round!

    Yep, I've got that covered! They were sending out the emails to proctors at 5pm on Friday. Since it's it is my proctor's work email, I can't really even ask her about it until tomorrow. I'm sure all of the info is in there. This is just me being anxious!

    Hi everyone, I noticed that NursingCAS has sections that are not required to submit an application but may be required by the school. When I called OHSU, they seemed confused by my inquiry. Do any of you know if we need to fill out the optional sections, such as "Parent and Family Information" or "Professional Experience"? I can't imagine them not wanting to have our work background, but I suppose they never really asked for a resume or anything. Let me know! Thanks!
