I am hoping to start a thread for University of Washington’s BSN program for Fall 2020.

Is anyone else applying to the traditional BSN after being rejected or waitlisted for the ABSN? What are your strategies in improving your application this time around?

I am currently waitlisted for the ABSN, and having just completed my BS, I have my heart set on that program. But through the application process I realized that I would rather do two years of school at UW than do an ABSN anywhere else. I look forward to getting to know you all better in this process. Good luck to all the applicants!

Hi!

This is my first time applying to the UW school of nursing program. I can't say I have any strategies on improving my application cause it's my first time applying, but I wish everyone the best of luck

Hey Lauren, I was also waitlisted and I’ve been struggling with the same situation. They said we could hear back about ABSN program acceptance up to a week from the start of class! I also applied for the 2 year. If I am accepted into the two year that would be as much as a blessing as the accelerated, so I believe I’ll probably take the offer, rather than chance not getting off the waitlist AND denying the BSN offer . I’m glad I’m not the only one trying to figure out what to do!!!

Hey guys. I applied to the traditional BSN. Im super anxious I did everything right... I didn’t get to attend the info session since I currently live in Houston, TX and will be relocating to North Bend in the next few months. I was accepted here to 3 schools, but due to the fiancés job, we are moving. I know I forgot to list the hours from each job on the resume 😞 and I have worked in the ER as an EMT for the last 9 years.... I hope that doesn’t hurt too much. Anyone hear anything about the essay yet? I know snow can cause some delays sometimes!

Yes, and if we chance not applying to the BSN and then don't get into the ABSN, we are going to be waiting another year to graduate anyway. I would rather graduate from the BSN in Mar 2022 than get into the ABSN next year and graduate in Aug 2022. I recently realized that the BSN as a two-year program isn't really "a year longer", more like 6 months longer. So I will feel SO happy if I get the privilege to be in either program.

There has already been decent movement on the waitlist! I don't know how high your number is, but I hope the movement has encouraged you and made you feel more positively about the ABSN!

It's so easy to second-guess your application once you've sent it out. You have a great healthcare background, so as long as you explained how your experience will make you a great nurse, that's probably the most important thing. I live in Boise, ID and didn't attend the info sessions either, but the recorded information on https://nursing.uw.edu/prospective/visit/bsn/ really helped me complete my application. 

I did the essay for the ABSN and felt that it was fair, gives you a chance to express your awareness of ecological/global factors as they affect the patient. I am using dosagehelp.com to practice for the calculations. In the past this portion of the application process has been 20% of your overall application.

Good luck with the move.. Will you have to move again to Seattle in the summertime if accepted? =O

Lauren, 

That’s true. It’s so competitive. Hopefully I can advance to the next round. You’re relocating as well?! And no. North Bend is only about a 35-40 minute drive from campus. I need to do the dosage website for practice. I do a lot of drug math at work already. Hopefully I just make it to the next round! And you as well!! Good luck 🙂 and be safe with the move!

Hi Lauren, 

    I was wondering where you saw that the traditional BSN would end in March? Does it go through the summer quarter as well? Thanks!

Oh you know what, I forgot that it is winter quarter that ends in March, not spring quarter. Sorry about that – I am used to semester format, so I forget. Still though, if we are done in May, that’s still less than one year longer than the ABSN. We could figure it out by looking at UW’s academic calendar or just calling, I suppose.

Okay, so the current academic calendar shows that Spring 2021 ends June 4th. https://www.washington.edu/students/reg/2021cal.html#QS Can reasonably assume Spring 2022 will end thereabouts. 

No summers per the BSN curriculum grid: https://nursing.uw.edu/bsn-curriculum-grid/
