It is that time. As the applications get completed and the results roll in share where you or your high school senior was accepted, rejected, still waiting and where you/ they hope to go. Post stats here as well and feel free to discuss any aspect of nursing if you'd like to keep it all in one place. Good luck everyone!

    What about Simmons nursing? Opinions? My D20 loves it. I think she can get accepted into some schools with more name recognition, but I'm not sure if that matters as much as the clinical experience she'd get going to school in the heart of Boston's hospital district.

    @momof3cherubs I know nothing about that school but having it so close to clinicals is ideal. I have heard that a BSN doesn't have to be from a name recognizable school as there will be a shortage of nurses in the future and they all will be needed. Not sure if that is completely true or not

    Read: What matters is the quality of the nursing program, and not the prestige of the college. Employers in a region know which colleges have provided well-prepared grads in the past.

    Daughter 17 is about 95% sure she wants to go in to nursing but knows direct admit nursing in CA is an impossible task for those under a 4.2 gpa. So she applied to various schools in and out of state. Mom is hoping she goes direct vs. undergrad then figuring out she does want to go into nursing and have to go the ABSN route after graduating.

    SAT: 1200
    ACT: 26 (retaken in Oct hopefully higher now)
    GPA: 3.9
    State Residency: CA
    Ethnicity: White
    Gender: F

    Admitted
    ASU Direct - $14,500 Merit invitation to apply to Honors college - but honors seems hard to manage on top of already difficult curriculum so doubt she will apply
    Florida Atlantic University - Direct - waiting on merit
    Boise State - Pre nursing (safety school)

    Applied and waiting
    Seattle University- Direct
    Univ of Portland - Direct
    USF - Direct
    Gonzaga - Direct
    UC Irvine - Direct
    Chico - pre nursing
    Cal State Long Beach - pre nursing
    SDSU - biology
    Cal Poly - biology
    UCSB - biology


    Have visited all of the CA schools and will visit ASU soon and the Pacific Northwest if she gets into any of those schools. She loves the idea of Florida but dad and I don't want her to go so far from home.

    Rank: na
    Extra: Loads of EC; volunteering, sports and leadership
    State Residency: IL
    Ethnicity: White
    Gender: F

    Applied to: Penn State, University of Pitts, Marquette, Bradley, Loyola of Chicago & Saint Louis University

    Direct or Pre-Nursing: Only direct-entry programs; she's sure she wants to pursue nursing/DNP

    Applied dates: Between 10/16-11/1

    Decision/College: Accepted: Penn (10/26..11/1), Marquette (10/16..10/26) and Bradley U(10/16..10/26); awaiting the rest. Very happy with what she's received; working on scholarship $$.
