Hello everyone. I'm new to allnurses.com and I just wanted to say congrats to those who got into the 2012 UCF nursing program this summer. I am a prenursing student at UCF as I am still working on a few prerequisites before I... Read More

    I'll be arriving at 8:30/9am interview.

    So, I asked how many candidates are going to be interviewed on 03/22. They said about a 100.
    So yeah, definitely multiple groups of 4-6 at four different time slots.
    I have the 8:30/9am interview too! I'm a morning person, I wanna get it over with! See you there!

    I'm at 8:30/9am as well. The guy on the phone did not give me an option. He just said he is filling the 8:30/9 time slot. I tried to ask him about the process, but he said I'd get more information that morning. I tried to get directions, he said just to Mapquest it.
    So, I guess I didn't get the most helpful scheduler. OK, so 100-ish people right, those are pretty good odds actually. Some other candidates might be waiting on letters from other schools, so this might drop.

    Same here. My brain is operating more efficiently in the morning.

    Wonderful. See you there.

    I am having such a hard time concentrating on work since last week's email. I can't believe that if all goes well and all of us conversing here pass the interview, that we are due to start the roller coaster in two months. All I want to do right now is read everything on the internet about nursing school interviews.

    Lol
    Welcome to the crazy world of interview rehearsing.
    I've been practicing on anybody. That's includes my dog and 2 cats. Lol

    So here's the scoop (as I know it) on my missing invitation. I'm telling you guys because you might actually understand what is invested into getting into this program and how it ties to your dreams and in case anyone else falls in a similar boat.
    It seems a few of us on this thread had an issue where we received e-mails saying we were not eligible awhile back. I was one of those. Through Alton Austin I was assured this was straightened out. Well somehow my application got back only into the pool of basic applicants, likely due to another mistake by admissions. Admissions enters things into the system and CON goes by that. According to admissions I have no degree, yet the system shows my transcripts are all there. So I have spoken to 6 people, passed from one to another. Alton who is likely the one who can help me is on vacation until wednesday! I am currently awaiting a call back from admissions. These are the same hoops I jumped through last month when the first mistake was detected and I am rather frusterated at the system to say the least. I am still hopeful they will get it corrected as it was not my mistake. Just makes me wonder how many others might have similar issues. I kind of thought that after the first mistake they may have looked more closely at mine for other mistakes and I really wonder why I would not have been notified again of my ineligibility due to no degree. I am quite certain I have a degree!

    I'm so sorry you're going through this and can only imagine your frustration! I was one of the ones that had a similar miscommunication and got it fixed. I'm hoping it works out for the best and you are also selected for an interview. What a nightmare

    I am so sorry that happened to you. I just about lost it when Ms. Washam told me that my information in the system was an amalgam of two other applicants. I won't say anything bad about them, but I wish the process was a bit smoother. I think I lucked out because I am currently taking classes at UCF (filler ones, so I could be established as a student).
    I also had the same problem with the APG petition for a pre-req class- if I got approval from the nursing school, why can't they see it? Keep pushing. You should get a spot in the interviews.

    Wow. That's so unbelievable. I'm very sorry you have to deal with this. Stay positive. It will happen.
