Quinnipiac accelerated nursing 2015

Posted

Hey just wondering if anyone on here was previously accepted to their program and how it is and if you don't mind sharing your stats. Also anyone else on here that's applied already for 2015? I just submitted my application last week.

Liddle Noodnik

Specializes in Alzheimer's, Geriatrics, Chem. Dep.. Has 30 years experience.

Sounds exciting! I am not familiar with it but hopefully you will get some good responses. Just wanted to welcome you to Allnurses!

I sent in my application yesterday so hoping transcripts and LORs make it there before Jan. 2!

Stats for me: 3.6 pre-req GPA ( will be taking micro in the spring) and 3.1 cumulative GPA with a degree in Kinesiology. Student-athlete in college, have tons of general volunteer experience. I was a volunteer in the CVICU at my university's medical center for a year and now currently volunteering at Yale New Haven Hospital. I also did my practicum shadowing a variety of clinical nurses for over 6 months. Hoping 2015 will bring me good news!

I just got an email stating that my application is now ready for review!

My application is also ready for review, I'm so nervous! Does anyone know how many students get accepted into the program?

I am currently in the program. First degree in early childhood education, 3.5 gpa. 3.8 prerequisite gpa. I love the program. They accepted 45 this year, 2 did not stay because of financial reasons. I believe roughly 250 people apply per year. I can say the stats of the class are across the board, some 3.1 gpa, others 3.9. I think what most people have in common is some sort of medical experience prior to coming, EMT's, CNA's, or volunteer experience in a health care setting.

How do you like the program? Professors? Clinical? Any information would be great!

thanks for the info! One more question did you have an interview before you were accepted?

This is a silly question but when you heard back was it a big envelope or regular sized? Lol Also where do you guys do your clinicals at?

Thanks for the information! :) I was wondering, after they accepted you how long did you have to give your decision?

:) Wishing everyone good luck! Hopefully March 1st comes soon!

I wondered the exact same thing lol. It was just a regular sized envelope :) We are all over southern Connecticut as far up as Hartford. So, St. Francis, St. Mary's, Bristol, Midstate, middlesex, Yale. The list goes on but I can't think of all of them.

That's a great question that I cannot answer unfortunately. I gave my answer right away. I know of people who said they would attend and ended up not attending later.

I really really like this program. It is very challenging, but the Professors do everything they can to see to your success. If you live in the area, I would suggest coming to one of the open house sessions, I believe one is coming up in March. They were able to give me a full tour of the Nursing department and state of the art labs/simulation technology.

In this cohort, everyone is a family which really helps when trying to study. I would highly suggest not working. There is a marked difference in my gpa and my counterparts who work. Hmm.. what else. The program is very, very expensive. About 62,000 in total. The good news is, mostly all students get an institutional grant of 25 grand. So, remember to fill out your FAFSA. Prepare to spend a good amount of extra money on books, scrubs, lab coats/equipment, and commuting. A friend of mine has to drive 1 hour and 15 mins to her clinical site.. and thats one way.

Hey guys! I am also in the program currently! I had zero medical experience coming in along with several others. I was told the main focus of the application was our essays! I had a high undergrad GPA (3.9) and pre reqs were fair but nothing amazing. Acceptance letters went out the VERY end of February/I got mine March 1st so its coming up!!! And yes, it was a small envelope. The program is challenging but definitely manageable. Fall and spring semester are similar to a junior year undergrad it is the summer that really will be the accelerated part. As long as you stay organized and on top of whats due and whats coming up it isnt a problem. Just as Christine said, the class really becomes a family and we all help each other out! One big thing to keep in mind about this program and nursing in general, is the importance of flexibility! Since they really appreciate student feedback they do try improving things year to year but of course some small kinks will come with that. Good luck to everyone!

Has anyone heard back yet?

I just spoke to Dr. **** ctually and she said responses will be going out all of March so hang in there! They got a lot of applicants this year so they want to take the time to make sure they read through everything! Most likely after the 15th I believe they will go out in waves!
