UNC ABSN Program for Summer 2021

Posted

Hi y'all, I thought I would start a thread for those who are applying to the ABSN nursing program for next Summer! Good luck to everyone applying!! :)

I am also in this cohort! Deadline is coming up shortly, good luck to everyone!

Finishing up my application today!! I’m so nervous.

Finishing up my application today as well! Very nervous but good luck!

Good luck to you, too!! I’ve reread my essay so many times. I’m paranoid that my credentials are not nearly enough compared to the previous cohorts I’ve read on here 😰

Hello all, I also submitted my application as well. I am nervous, but also hopeful, eager, and excited. I wanted to stop in and wish everyone the best of luck at acceptance. May the wait pass by quickly.

Yeah I'm also really nervous- I've already been wait listed for the fall cohort so I really just want something to work out! We all got this & just have to stay positive and follow our dream 🙂

Hi! I applied as well. After reading other cohort's threads I am very nervous! I also work with a nurse who went to UNC's ABSN program and she had a 4.0 at NC State and was also valedictorian. I am just hoping for the best!

Did anyone apply elsewhere?

Those are impressive stats, It is easy to feel under-qualified, but remain hopeful. My GPA isn’t that high. I am also hoping for the best, but attempting to remain realistic.
Personally, I did not apply elsewhere. UNC is my dream school. Does anyone else care to share their GPA info or a little about themselves?

My GPA is a 3.56 undergrad. Nursing prereqs are all A's and one B in A&P 1. I've worked as a CNA for over a year and have 7 years of healthcare experience (starting in the front desk, after college worked as an analyst for two hospitals) before deciding to go back for nursing.

Impressive! There’s no need to feel any bit unqualified.

As for me, I had a 3.7 undergrad GPA and A’s in the prerequisites, but not nearly the healthcare experience.

The start to my undergraduate was a little bumpy so I am definitely not a shoo in. I have a 3.35 GPA and all A's in my science prerequisites. I have some general volunteer but no healthcare experience. Hopefully, my essays are compelling. I only applied to UNC-CH this time around because it was the best school (in my budget) within commuting distance. So fingers crossed. And good luck to all!

I also only applied to UNC-CH. It’s a little frightening to place all your eggs in one basket, but I am trying to remain hopeful and optimistic, focusing on other things until letters are mailed. The wait does feel a little tough. Hopefully, letters will be mailed out in just over a month or so. Best of luck! 

Hi all! I also applied to UNC's ABSN program for Summer 2021. My GPA from my first undergraduate degree is not the best at 3.25. But my prerequisite GPA is a 4.0. My first degree is in Public Relations and I've worked the past 5 years as a fundraiser for hospitals and medical universities. UNC is my first choice program, but I also applied to 5 others and just got my acceptance letter for my second choice school (Duquesne in Pittsburgh, PA) so I am happy either way, but am still hoping to be able to go to UNC!

Best of luck! I hope you get into UNC since it’s your first choice 😉 

Anyone know of when they will send out decisions? For some reason I thought it may have been mid October, but the website also says 12+ weeks after applications are due...

I, too, noticed the conflicting information. After scoping prior threads, it seems that anywhere between the second and last week of October seems relatively normal. I am sure that many things go into the variation. Additionally, I wonder if COVID may affect the decision process in any way. I am starting to become a little impatient as the days draw closer. Nevertheless, I hope the wait is shorter rather than longer.
