i think you need to know what kind of learner you are, so that you can pick the right setting for you to learn in.
again, that's just me.

Good luck with everything!!yes, that's a good point, I'm just the opposite, I'd rather do things on my own and get through the material at my own pace.

- Nov 18, '08 by hatingthewaitingWhat GPA range is needed to get into the UCSF CPM masters program? I am referring to the one for people who already have a BSN, not the MEPN program. I know the MEPN requires a really high GPA, like 3.85 to be considered. Also, if you have a degree in another field and then got an acclerated BSN, will they look at both your first degree and nursing GPA?
- May 26, '09 by RosesRNI am also interested in getting some tips to increase my acceptance into the UCSF program or simply externship and residency for an RN. i am just starting my ABSN in August 2009, I will be finished in December 2010, but I am already looking ahead at summer externships and residencies at UCSF and the CNM program. Can anyone who got into their program or work for them give me some of their stats. I read on the website that they want a 3.5 GPA and great clinical references. Is Spanish still necessary? thanks so much! i really want to work in L & D.

- Jun 9, '09 by LuvofNursingFor those of who in northern/central california/bay area. UCSF midwifery program DOES have distance learning....In the FAQs, they state that they try to make it so that most can be done in the student's hometown, while traveling to SF only 1 day/week.
After speaking with someone about the program, she stated that people who apply generally have about 5 years experience in L&D. She also stated knowing Spanish is very important, although not necessary. I know they have books that are specific to Obstetric Nursing spanish phrases.
here is a book from amazon...
It's only $6. There is a OB specific section....at least it's a start.
BTW, how do you merge threads?
- Jun 10, '09 by RosesRN5 years! wow. I have looked at another distance program and the minimum was 1 year. hmmm. that is great to hear that i would only have to commute 1 day a week. i'd like to stay in my sunny hometown. lol
- Jun 10, '09 by LuvofNursingQuote from Roses623Just to clarify, she said there is not actually a minimum, but the AVERAGE is 5 years. It is a very competitive program.5 years! wow. I have looked at another distance program and the minimum was 1 year. hmmm. that is great to hear that i would only have to commute 1 day a week. i'd like to stay in my sunny hometown. lol
Let me know if you find out anything interesting...good luck!
