    Hi and good afternoon everyone! Like all of you, I also applied to USF's MS-CNL program.

    Has anyone heard back from them? And nice to meet you all! Anyone here coming from any nursing background? It seems very competitive and from what i've heard so far, their expectations come for more of leadership, nursing oriented background type.

    I just want to know if I got in already or not haha!

    I looked at last year's thread and they notified people starting on March 29. Take a deep breath, everyone; we're in for a bit of a wait.

    Good luck to all of you!

    Thanks for the update jaytphan.


    Yea I was wondering if anyone had any clinical experience prior to application? Does most people apply with volunteer experience?

    Hi sengcreative. To respond to your question, I've volunteered at a few places for varied amounts of time but I had not had any paid clinical experience. But as far as I can tell from going to info sessions, it is a plus to have some sort of healthcare experience when you're applying to schools. If you don't, it may be particularly useful to have worked in some other field that involves working with people and serving the underserved. In my opinion, any experience is useful as long as you can relate it back to the role of nursing and how those experiences will help you in the future.

    I'm sure they look at applications as a whole and if you're lacking in some parts of the application, try to make up for it with other outstanding parts.

    Good luck.
