Hi All,

My goal is to go for the ABSN program in the Spring 2021. I still have yet to do pharmacology, pathophysiology and Microbiology (aiming to have these done by end of the year or by the application due date). I was told HESI A2 may not be required due to the COVID-19, but depending on how this goes, they may have us take the test later on this year.

When they look over our application, which ones are they considering high on the list to be considered? I know GPA is a big deal too.

Thanks and good luck to all!

What’s up everyone! Applying for Spring 2021.
GPA: 3.9

science GPA: 3.8

10,000+ hours clinical experience in military W/ overseas deployment, certified medical lab tech, certified personal trainer, bls certified.
Roughly 200 hours volunteer experience in clinical setting.

obviously no HESI score.

Started the application process not too long ago. I wish you all the best of luck, there are so many strong candidates in this thread!

Hey guys,

I didn't see any information regarding volunteer hours. Is that a requirement?

Hi everyone!

I am applying to hopefully start Spring 2021. I live in Folsom and would be commuting to SMU. Does anyone live in the Sacramento area that would be interested in car pooling?

Good-luck to everyone that's applying 🙂

There are online volunteer opportunity if you want to check that out. Having a 4.0 Science GPA will help a lot too. Good luck!

How can we volunteer online?

What other programs are you guys applying to you? And what is your first choice? Will you all be commuting? I’m coming from San Jose!

The word limit is 250-300. I know it says 200-250 on the very top, but if you look under each question it says 250-300. In a live chat we were told to go with the 250-300 word limit. Hope that helps

Thanks for reply. Yeah that’s why I am confused 200-250 or 250-300 and When I asked in live chat, --------------------- said 250.. still confused 😞
