Vanderbilt Pre-Specialty (for non-RNs) MSN 2013 - page 20

Hi All, There doesn't seem to be a thread yet for pre-specialty Vandy applicants (the thread going now seems to consist mostly of grad entry), so I thought I'd start one! Any other pre-specialty... Read More

    bbcc, Most people live within about 4-5 miles of campus. I don't know anyone who lives far away just because morning commutes in Nashville are pretty rough. And on clinical days we have to be at the hospital at 6am and living in Antioch would make for a very long day.

    They're still reviewing files for NMW, if anyone else is waiting on that! Looks like I'm gonna be submitting a back-up application this Friday... did not want to spend the extra money!

    bbcc - did they say when results for midwifery would be released?

    Nope - I don't think the admissions department has any idea when the faculty will turn them over! I'll likely call back on Friday, right before I submit my other application, in the hopes that I don't have to.

    Anyone who is going to visit next weekend from out of town... Mind sharing where you are staying?

    I am having trouble finding a place that isn't completely booked. Thanks!

    For the pre-specialty year, it is my understanding that we would be on campus one week per month. For the other part of the month, are we doing clinicals in Nashville M-F, listening to lectures/completing assignments, or both?

    oau3: I booked at the Hampton Inn Vanderbilt (through expedia). I also saw an Extended Stay that got good reviews and was close by the campus.

    Well I thought that during the pre-specialty year we have class about three days a week with clinicals the other 1 or 2 days of the week. The year starts with more lectures per week and ends with more clinicals per week. At least that is how my interviewer described it.

    Then during the specialty year is when the modified block format starts. We meet about one week per month for classes and then spend the other three weeks during clinicals at the site we are assigned to (or choose, for distance students).
