Stony Brook ABSN Class of 2022

Posted

Stony Brook School of Nursing has recently opened the undergraduate application portal for the 2021 school year. I was part of an allnurses thread for their Basic BSN program last year, and the information and support from other applicants was amazing; so I jumped on creating a thread for this cycle as soon as applications became available.

Any questions or even just casual discussion about the program is more than welcome! Can’t wait to talk to all of you. 😊

Thank you. My only question is I seen on old post that its better to have more then 3 recommendations? should we keep it at 3 or get 4?

The number of recommendations doesn’t matter so much, as long as you have 3 at minimum. What’s more important is that the recommendations you do get are of good quality. It wouldn’t hurt to get 4, as long as you trust that all of your recommenders will write a great recommendation. It’s better to have 3 outstanding recommendations than 4 decent ones, if that makes sense.

No clue. They’ll probably let us know when/if we get invited to interview. If I hear any information prior, I’ll be sure to pass it on!
