Hi everyone! Just a little vent / moral support here! I am on the waiting list to get into the FNP / ENP program I applied for. I am so confused and frustrated! This particular private university in my city waived the GRE requirement, and I think they were swarmed with applicants. Out of about 200, I made it to the interviews (50 nurses). They only had 20 slots to fill, so I didn't luck out.
I have 13 years of experience in critical care, cardiac cath lab, and most recently nursing education. I am a certified CCRN and CMC. I was about to take the GRE, but when I saw they were waiving it, I cancelled my exam.
I was told by the graduate advisor that they looked at GRE scores, even though not required. Somehow I don't think the GRE is relevant to becoming a FNP. I thought years of experience matters more, but I guess not!
I will try again next year. Or look for other programs in the area. Just so bummed.......
