From your own personal experience, explain your understanding of nursing, and why the nursing profession and the AMNP program is a good fit for you. Outline your nursing career goals. Describe your interest in the Clinical Nurse Leader track or one of the other master's specialty options.
- 0Oct 24, '11 by lbuacMel, thank you so much for the info! I definitely brushed up on these topics in my essay, but I have re-read my essay and went over my resume so I can go into specifics. I have questions that I'm practicing with as well - kind of a mock interview. Do you know how long the interviews last? Are you currently in the program? I am currently interested in the CNL route.
- 0Oct 24, '11 by melrnbcALHave no idea how long the interview, not in the program, am in the RN-BSN-MSN mobility track with hopes to get into the pmhnp track starting Spr 2012. I just happen to have worked with a few of the faculty that have courses and do clinicals with the programs. But it does not give me any edge at all. unfortunately.
- 0Jun 19, '13 by kareenkapoorHey everyone, I know this forum is a little old but my question relates to it. I have currently been unemployed for 6 months and I have a Masters of Science in Health Education and Behavior from the University of Florida. I am actually planning to apply to the UAB BSN and AMNP to see if I would be able to get more hands on experience. My program obviously didn't prepare me well enough to land a job because we never got hands on experience. There are other students who on the same boat as me. I honestly dont know what to do anymore. Anytime I do try to apply for a "Health Educator" job, nursing comes up. So I feel like unless I get degree in nursing and become a RN I have no future. I still have a few more prerequisites to take, however I don't want to take them if I have no chance of getting into the school. Plus, like many other people, I honestly don't know if nursing is the right path for me, because I don't know what I hope to gain from the MSN. Anytime of advice is welcomed. Thanks!!

The program at UAB does not allow you to stop with just your RN. You are not awarded a degree after phase 1. You have to continue on and get your MSN. There are many options including health education and that would be a waste of time. If you are interested in obtaining your CRNP then this program is the way to go. It is very intensive but after 1 year you are licensed and you go to work while you work on your masters. There are many people who already have masters in the current cohort and have in the previous ones also. I would recommend that you shadow a nurse, shadow a NP, shadow a nurse educator and see if this is remotely what you want to do. Several people quit 8 weeks to a semester in and they are out $8000 for tuition.
In regards to the original topic 61 people were accepted this year and they want to expand the program to 75. Best of luck!
- 0Jul 29, '13 by melrnbcALIf you have an ADN already..they do award a BSN if you have completed the hours and It takes a little longer to get you MSN. You still have to complete all those prereq's, along with the other. The AMNP is very fast paced, so fast, they do not recommend that you work,Last edit by melrnbcAL on Jul 29, '13 : Reason: redo
