    ABSN UW Summer 2019

    I graduated in August 2019 from the 5 quarter ABSN program - you will need to be available 7 days a week to complete this program, especially now that it is only 4 quarters. For our program first 2 quarters were up to 5 days per week, winter quarter included saturdays, spring quarter was 5 days per week and then senior practicum (summer quarter) we worked our nurses schedules plus had class on tuesdays, so you need to be available all 7 days. I hope this helps! Marin, I just graduated from the ABSN program and would say that it isn't so much about your GPA or hours of experience - though the average pre-req is somewhere in the 3.7 or higher range usually and the volunteer hours is usually in the 650 range. Having said that it is more about what you do with this experience and how you articulate what you know about nursing from these experiences and what you learned from it. Good luck!

    UW ABSN Summer 2018

    I got the first call at 9:45am and just received the official invitation from Adrian via a call back. So excited to be part of 2018 ABSN! Good luck to those still waiting to hear. He said official emails would go out around 3pm, so there is still time!

    @Cpark96 I am applying to other programs as well, just in case, but I am not applying to Seattle U. My primary desire is the ABSN, but I am also planning to apply to the UW BSN, and a few area colleges/community colleges too. I know how competitive it is so I am planning ahead! I decided against Seattle U since as a post-baccalaureate I couldn't qualify for their regular scholarships which bring it down from the $56K per year. I just couldn't justify that amount of debt. I do have several friends who graduated from SU and loved their program!

    I heard them say 171 and I agree with shakethedust that this is less than I thought also. From what I recall seeing from prior years posts, 48 admitted and 30-50 Will male waitlist with usually the first 20ish make it in from the waitlist. So we all have better odds than in prior years with over 200 applicants :)

    Ditto on the math answers!! I chose scenario 3 because it was the patient I have the least experience caring for and focused on how this would push me to develop new skills and perspectives. So glad we all are through this final hurdle...and now we wait, but at least we have each other to keep us company.

    @Cpark96 - are you using a Mac? If so, did you ensure you have the latest version of Adobe? You can uninstall the program and reinstall in to see if that helps. Mine calculated without any issues on my Mac. If that doesn't work I would try to reach out to Adrian on Monday for help. Best of luck!

    like goal:midwife I have been viewing RegisteredNurseRN and then also using Quizlet for Nursing Math nursing math Study Sets and Flashcards | Quizlet. Good luck to those who still need to turn in your apps! Looking forward to one more step closer once we get to the proctored essay.

    @shakethedust I have in my notes from this website below that ABSN has to do postbac for summer and BSN Fall postbac application. UW Postbac Nursing Application section If you wish to be considered for ABSN program (which begins summer quarter) and the BSN program (which begins autumn quarter), you must submit two separate UW application forms, one for each program. Therefore, you must submit a UW application for summer quarter (ABSN) and a UW application for autumn quarter (BSN).

    Seattle University Transfer BSN 2016

    Hello! I know this is an older board, but I am wondering if anyone can tell me what the approximate costs are for SU's BSN Transfer program. I am currently researching to enter a program in 2018 and from the website, it appears SU might cost $38K per year but I wanted to verify with a group who would know for sure! Thank you in advance!

    University of Washington ABSN Program

    Thank you suburiafeelsu! This is great and I love seeing your schedule laid out - very contextually helpful. What would you say was the most difficult part (s) of the ABSN program? Do you feel, in the end, it was a good investment of the extra cost to finish 9 months earlier? What do you feel was your most differentiating aspect which enabled you to gain entrance to the program? Thanks again!
