I went directly through school and did not work as a nurse (5 years doula/CBE experience) and therefore used nursing instructors for all 3 refs. Two were clinical instructors who could comment on my clinical performance and one was a nurse-midwife who taught a class of mine and who had met w me several times to chat about midwifery. She knew I was driven, passionate and deeply committed to the profession.
- 0May 2, '13 by midwifetobe85Hi arayRN, yea unfortunately financial aid doesn't become available until a few weeks into the first semester (which generally starts a month of so after Frontier Bound). Maybe start saving now? The $575 covers everything - room and board. If I understand correctly, you'd only need more money for FB if you wanted to spend money in the school store/gift shop. You do have to also take into account the $100 for Banyan Tree - the short online course which must be finished and paid for before Frontier Bound. Which class did you apply for? Your FB would be several months away right? Maybe figure out how much you'd need to put aside a week over the next few months so that you'll have it when you *hopefully* get in? I'm trying to figure out how I'll pay for my living costs since the federal aid won't be enough for both. Aye, why can't this all be more affordable?!
- 1May 2, '13 by arayRNThanks for all the helpful information. Well I originally applied for 118, but I emailed them and said my packet will be complete in time for the 116 class since they extended it until may 29. I just graduate with my rn, bsn so I'm waiting on one last transcript. This is as much anxiety if not more that I had waiting on nursing school decisions. I probably need to stay off the Internet and work a much as possible the next few weeks.
