  1. Fall 2016 Nursing School Applicant Support Group

    Hi Adrien! I can give you a few tips that impacted mine and my friends who applied to CSUS SON. 1st - Don't ignore the spring acceptance! Very few schools enroll students twice a year so if you can apply to start in the spring. The sooner you start...
  2. Sacramento State (CSUS) Fall 2015 applications

    I don't know if you were at orientation yesterday, but they did talk about the benefits of an FB for the cohort. Thank you so much for taking the time to get this set up! I'm sure it will benefit everyone and hopefully we can get to know each other...
  3. Advice on TEAS V Exam???

    Before you start studying, I suggest taking a practice test. This will help you know which sections and which topics you need to focus on. There are two sources I'd suggest: the ATI study book has two sample tests and provides clarification for eac...
  4. Sacramento State (CSUS) Fall 2015 applications

    I'm in section 9 and will consider it my lucky number because I was also alternate #9.
  5. Sacramento State (CSUS) Fall 2015 applications

    I'm going to try and knock it out next month. From what I understand it isn't too hard, we just need to be able to write two coherent essays. I don't think they offer winter intersession classes we'd need if we didn't place high enough for the seco...
  6. Sacramento State (CSUS) Fall 2015 applications

    If you can, go the school and try them on. They have them available Monday - Friday from 8-4 I think. We got very lucky because my friends told me the new company is much more comfortable than in semesters past. I would suggest trying them on so y...
  7. Fall 2016 Nursing School Applicant Support Group

    I was able to get into the BSN program at CSUS and have several friends in the program. There are some details that are helpful when applying that were shared with me, and I'd love to be able to pass them along if they'd be helpful. When you get clo...
  8. Hardest part about a&p for you?

    The hardest part of A&P for me was seeing how much longer it took me to memorize the details my classmates seemed to get down in minutes. Bones and their markings took me forever...but two years later I still remember than. I think avoiding com...
  9. I feel like a failure.

    Of course you aren't a failure! You haven't given up, you're just adapting to your new situation. I know there can be a lot of pressure and desire to apply to schools ASAP and I admire your hustle. But you did the right thing because you don't ju...
  10. Prerequisites

    If you need to retake stats, why not take it in fall with A&P? Even if you didn't love stats, at least the information will be fresh in your mind and that could be an advantage. Waiting 'til spring may leave time for the information to go cold an...
  11. Trying to Apply

    I'd avoid taking the TEAS just to see where you stand. Not only can it be expensive, but each school treats the number of and time between attempts differently. If where you plan to apply changes taking it out of curiosity could hurt you. I'd sugg...
  12. ADN vs BSN Battle

    You're absolutely right. Even within CA there are different requirements for different schools. I will make sure I take the time to be more clear when I post to anything - especially on a thread which has the word "battle" in the headline. My bes...
  13. ADN vs BSN Battle

    You're right! I took my pre reqs at a community college and then took another semester to complete my transfer requirements to get into the university so I could apply to the BSN program. The BSN program was way, way, way beyond what I thought I co...
  14. ADN vs BSN Battle

    None of that was my intention. I'm not a horrible, hateful and competitive person. I will make certain to be more clear in future posts. Not to preserve how I am perceived by others, but because this should be a forum to have helpful, supportive c...
  15. ADN vs BSN Battle

    Whoa! I should have been more clear in my post. I did actually KNOW the students in both programs. I had classes with them, studied together and took other pre reqs together. I did in fact know the people who had been accepted to the ADN program (...
