I have recently applied and interviewed to a DNP program at University of Wisconsin- Oshkosh. I am graduating from a BSN program this upcoming May. I have asked a lot of people, including the school I am applying to, about the decision to go directly into a DNP program from a BSN program with no RN experience- I understand many people will tell me not to do this, but there is also a handful that tell me that it is a good idea to go straight into it as well. I weighed the choices, and decided I wanted to try to go part-time and hit it hard while working part time and gleaning as much clinical knowledge, wisdom, and mentorship that I can while in the DNP program. I interviewed already, and I feel confident with how it went, however there were about 100 interviewees, and they only accept 25 students. I should hear back in mid-April. I do really want to get in, so I am asking for advice:
-Does anyone know about UW-Oshkosh and what type of applicants they accept?
-Now that the interview is over, is there anything else I can do such as write a letter of intent?
-Any advice for a student going straight through (I would be part time DNP student for 5 years)?
