  1. Hello everyone! I am in need of some help from current CSULB students on keeping a job during the BSN program. I had my interview last week and I have a pretty high score, so I have hopes that I will get accepted. In the eventhe I get in for spring 2016, I am going to need to work. I currently work per diem as a sitter, but have the opportunity to transfer positions and work part time as a tele tech (2×/week @0700-1930). In your opinion, would it be hard to balance 24 hrs plus school? I have already taken pharm, so I would just be taking patho and theat other core nursing classes. Any input is greatly appreciated!

    CSULB Spring 2016 applicants!

    From reading past forums and word of mouth from people currently in the program, it seems like the interviews have been consistent over the past years with us having to watch a video and write a reflection on the video. Also, I guess we get a box of objects and have to explain them to a partner or something like that. I was told the interview is more of a formality and that we already have a ranking and that the nursing admissions staff just want to see that we aren't incapable of communicating to other people and can show professionalism, etc.

    is anybody gonna keep working if they get into the program? Financially, I need to work because I want to keep my loans to a minimum. I currently work at a local hospital per-diem, so like 8-16 hours/week, but I will be switching positions and potentially working 24 hours/week (2 days 7am-730pm). Do you think that would be too much?

    Telemetry technician requirements

    Hello, everyone! I am currently employed at a hospital in my area as a patient sitter. Since I will be hopefully starting nursing school within the next few months, I am looking to transfer to a position as a telemetry technician. I am currently taking a cardiac dysrhythmia course at my school and it is 8 weeks and we go through NSR and sinus dysrhythmias, atrial rhythms, junctional rhythms, ventricular rhythms and heart blocks. I feel like I am pretty competent, but do you guys know of any exams/courses I could take that will provide me a certification I can show to my employer? Any input is greatly appreciated! p.s. as a telemetry technician, do I need to have a pretty thorough rhythm understanding or just the basics?

    I've taken psych, nutrition, patho, pharm and sociology is in progress. I think it might give you aneed edge if you have the same number of points as someone else who hasn't taken those classes, but I think that's about it.

    took my TEAS a couple weeks ago and got a 90.2 overall and a 96.7 on the math. My science/ gen ed gpa is 4.0, so I think that puts me at a 9.75. im transfering from a CC, so im a bit worried that the university itself will reject me for some reason lol. my CSU gpa is 3.98, so hopefully I'll have a shot and the university and the SON. I'm applying to the university today and I'm gonna mail in my SON app next week once my transcript comes in.
  10. Hello, Everyone! Since August 1st is right around the corner, I wanted to start this thread to get an idea of who is applying to CSULB for Spring 2016 and get info such as: home school, GPA, TEAS V, application score, etc. For myself, it is the following: - Gen-ed GPA: 4.0 - Pre-req GPA: 4.0 - TEAS math: 96.7% - overall TEAS: 90.7% - unofficial application score: 9.75 I am currently a junior college student and will be applying to both the university and the SON in a few weeks. Side note--if there are any other JC students transferring, do we need a CSULB student ID to be able to submit our SON app or can we submit our SON app before we get accepted into the University itself? I hope to get to know some of you on here and that we will all have a chance at being classmates in a few months time!
