- Mar 11 by CynCyn26OMG its that expensive to get a BS in nursing?? my god.
- Mar 11 by bboykenshinHi 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!
- Mar 11 by MelaninI have applied and am still waiting waiting waiting to hear back. Maybe by the end of this month. . .
- Mar 11 by scwolfI 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!
- Mar 12 by MelaninSchwoop. (That's the sound of a deep breath. Hope I can hold it until the end of March. ) Good luck!
- Mar 12 by jaytphanHello all! =)
Just an update for everyone who is waiting. I just called in earlier today to see if they sent out any acceptance/rejection letters, and the lady told me that they will not be making any decisions until April!!!! Why!?!! ='( We just gotta wait a bit longer guys! Hang in there ^_^
- Mar 12 by MelaninApril!? Arg! Oh well. April it is.
- Mar 12 by ScoobyWongNo, I doubt we will hear anything soon. Earliest would be during the last week of March.
- Mar 18 by sengcreativeThanks for the update jaytphan.
Yea I was wondering if anyone had any clinical experience prior to application? Does most people apply with volunteer experience?
- Mar 20 by consssssHi 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.
