So I'm getting pretty nervous here. A couple of things, first my GPA is only a 3.6 and my science GPA is 3.5. I'm worried these aren't nearly competitive enough for the program. Second, I have a letter of recommendation from a FNP I've shadowed and one from a former professor. However, I can't seem to shadow a CNM or WHNP due to my night shifts. Unfortunately, my hospital is extremely busy right now and it is difficult to switch back to days in order to spend the day in a clinic then convert back to nights. My advisor states that not having a letter from a APRN in the field I'm applying into may be a problem. Should I just give up on NM/WHNP and apply into FNP instead then get my post-masters in my specialty?
I feel like my application may be a little weak in comparison to others and am worried so much about these recommendations as being the make it or break it for me.
Any guidance or suggestions is appreciated.
ZoeP25, if you don't mind my asking, would you tell me a little about your background? I'm applying for the Jan 2014 CNM/WHNP program at Georgetown, and I'm really nervous! How long did it take to get a reply, how much experience do you have, etc? Any tips? Thanks so much! (And good luck, Dyana143!) - Amanda
