Rutgers ABSN Spring 2021

Updated | Posted

Hey! I figured I'd start a thread as I haven't found one for this upcoming semester. Has anyone applied for Rutgers ABSN Spring 2021 start?

I have applied and am currently just waiting on a response. I know I have spoken to someone at the school and they have mentioned that some people have already gotten their decisions. 

I also applied I didn't know people would get decisions this early on!

I honestly didn’t either but judging by past threads, it seems as thought many people knew before October was over and by the time it started.

Hi all,

I applied to Camden as my first choice- what about you guys? I was waitlisted last time for New Brunswick- but now with Newark being the combined campus, I'd rather commute to Camden. Have some other options/seats in other programs- but Rutgers really is the most affordable. 

I applied pretty early- before September 1st so we shall see!

I applied in early Sept myself. Turns out I was missing a document and I had to check all that myself. The application portal says it will show you if you're missing something but it didn't. I pretty much spent 4 weeks thinking I was good to go. I hope this doesn't ruin my chances. 

Just curious- which document ?

Oh, wow what were you missing? I know I submitted all of my transcripts and on previous threads saw that BLS is due upon admission but I was told to send it in. That means I need to take another BLS class since I expire in Nov so I'm trying to take one before the 15th to send in. 

@Lccoric10 I applied for Newark as I live bout 15 minutes from the campus however if NB was an option I would've chosen that. What other schools are you looking at. I wanted something that started soon and started off remote.

Yeah its the BLS certification. The only other school I applied to is LIU in Brooklyn. I also applied to PA programs and I have an interview on Oct 16 but I'm leaning more towards RN I just hope I get in. 

 

Ah OK ; I asked if I can just send my expiring one in and was told to also show proof I’m registered for which I am in November and I just did(crosses fingers). IDK why they just don’t tell us that’s included before hand.

Oh wow, how did you find out you were missing that document?

 

I'm so nervous to have missed something because the application does not say anything like "all documents received."

I read the admission requirements page like 30 times. When I applied in September I remember I never put in any information for the BLS Card. I was hoping they would contact me but they never did so after a month (today) I contacted them and they gave me an email address to send it to them. But like the person said above maybe they ask for it once you get accepted who really knows.

The only thing the portal shows for me is my transcripts and my $70 fee.

I did the re-enrollment app so I don't even see transcripts. Unless there's another portal I'm not aware of LOL

See for me I found out I needed it because after the open house Monday I went and applied but instead of noting I was a transfer student I put that it was my first time thinking first time at Rutgers and applied to the school of arts and sciences. Once I did that I called to see if they got my app cuz it was like way too easy they said no we don’t have it SAS has it so they need to send it to us. I emailed them they said nursing has to do it. Got the run around and finally was told to reach out to Newark nursing and I emailed them and instead of emailing me back when I checked in the am to see if they got my electronic transcripts noticed a second app that said nursing. And I was still feeling you easy an reached out via the chat the lady said I have such and such transcripts but where is the BLS because that’s all you’re missing. They need to make it clear that they want it so people like us can hand it in on time. I mean oct 15 is the deadline for documents had I not made that mistake I wouldn’t have been as paranoid to double and triple check. But I did tell them mine expires in November and she said show proof I’m registered to re cert so that they know I’ll have one valid for Spring. I’m registered for nov but I’m feeling like I need to do this before the 15th so I don’t get screwed. 

I only got the confirmation from Rutgers-SAS (my undergrad) that they received it but maybe this is a sign I should reach out to them just to double-check that they have everything. Ughh I hate the waiting game 😢

I was able to sign up for one like a 4 days before the class so if you have time definitely try to just to be safe. 

@ecc888 tomorrow I’m def going to sign up for one in the week. I’m not taking chances and I’d def double check if you’re not missing anything not that we only have really 10 business days to submit anything
