This is my first post here and I had no idea where to put it SO if someone reading this knows where else I should post it to get more attention let me know! Okay, so I just found out today that I didn't get accepted to Rutger's 2nd Degree BSN program :cry:

I am really disappointed because I thought, according to the description, it was a program I could enter without first completing all the science pre-req's which I haven't done yet and was planning on completing at Rutgers prior to starting my nursing classes. I tried calling the admissions office to talk to someone about why I may not have been accepted, but I wont receive a call back for up to three business days.

I was wondering if anyone knows if I might have been rejected because I don't have many pre-req's completed....Does anyone know anymore about Rutgers 2nd degree admissions? I was under the impression that the accelerated program were for people who had all their requirements done and that the traditional were for people who needed to take more....am I wrong? My backup plan was to spend the next year taking my prerequisites at a community college and then apply to a BSN program....

Thanks!

Well, in response to my own question, I spoke with someone from Rutgers admissions and they said that even for the traditional 2nd degree BSN program, most applicants and admitted students have completed the majority of the prerequisites.

I'm not sure how they decide...i got accepted but I have most of the pre-reqs done. Do any of you know if you can begin the nursing classes while still taking the remaining pre-reqs? I don't think I can stand another semester of just pre-reqs without seeing a nursing class!

Hi, MellieM

Is your program is Accelerated one?

I've also accepted Rutgers 2nd degree program, and I have most of my prereqs completed. But I still have to get a few prereqs done by taking challenge exam.

If you're same program as me, Do you know anything about the exam?

I hope you see this post.

I did not apply for the accelerated--just traditional. I wish I could help but I don't know anything about the program really! I called and was told that even if I finished my remaining pre-reqs this summer, I will not be able to start the nursing program for another year! So I am going to go somewhere else because I can't be in school for three more years! Good luck--try calling them--they were very helpful when I called!

Thanks for reply.

I've tried to call them but never gotten back. I'd better visit their office to ask my concerns.

Hope you fine right school for you.

Good luck!!
