I had an interview with Jacksonville University a couple weeks ago. I was satisfied with my interview performance. It could have been better (maybe) but no serious mistakes or blank-outs or awkward answers, and the content of my answers was solid overall. My takeaway from that experience was that my academics combined with a good enough interview should make me competitive to get accepted. Now all I can do is wait and try to stay calm! While I'm waiting for results I'm researching ABSN programs. What if I am accepted into more than one program?! I can compare curriculums and costs but I'm more interested in hearing from people who have gone to Jacksonville University. It costs more than state schools
... was it worth it? Does JU have good connections to hospitals that helped you land good clinical spots and a job when you graduated? Did having JU on your CV help you get hired at a good salary? I'm really interested in working in a challenging position. I'm thinking ICU or emergency medicine. This sort of experience would help me later in my career when I decide to return to school for a DNP. There's going to be students who loved JU and those who regretted it. I would like to hear from both. Right now I have a favorable impression of JU because I perceive that they have a good reputation and their students make desirable new hires.
