Hi there! I received my acceptance letter for the Summer 2011 Accelerated BSN Program at UM. I was just wondering if anyone who is already in this program could give me some insight on how they like it. Some of my main questions... Read More

    BrCia,
    I plan to do the MSN part time at UM or FAU. The 2 year track and I am gonna do the DNP with UF or UM for another year and a half.

    Grace,

    See thats where I come across some issues. I don't particularly want my DNP but what is the fate or NP if they don't earn their DNP? I went to UF for undergrad and am also looking and talking to their nursing admissions department but their accelerated involves direct entry into the DNP program...

    Thank you

    BrCia,

    I am a fellow Gator myself and will be graduating April 30 with my Bachelors in Health Science. I have spoken to Ken as well about the Accelerated BSN and I know what you mean. UF is going towaed the direct entry to DNP with the option to exit with MSN for now. I am choosing not to go that route only because I would like a change of scenery and the post masters DNP is distance based unlike the post bachelors. The DNP is not a requirement by 2015 but merely a recommendation so many schools like UF and UM are starting to gear students towards entering this program. You will still be an NP with or without a DNP as long as you pass your certification exam. The DNP is something I am doing for myself in hopes of bettering patient outcomes in low income communities. I am very interested in women's heath and pediatrics, and eventually want to open a Women's/Children's clinic in the future. I am also merely 21 years old so I have the time to spend doing all this. Your unique situation may make it difficult for you to pursue the DNP.

    Hiiiiiii everyone!

    I'm so thrilled to find you all on this forum! I was accepted for the May program in December, I'm super excited

    I'm from Seattle and not moving to Miami until May 2nd. I'm wondering if there are any other students that need to find housing close to campus and would want to be roommates?? I know myUM has housing options but people don't seem to post rooms until the last minute. I'm also looking on Craigslist but because I'm from out of town I think I would prefer to share housing with some students in the program. If anyone is interested, let me know! Maybe we can start a new thread if a lot of people are interested..

    Anyway, I'll be visiting for a week in March for the Scholarship interview and to secure housing arrangements.

    It's nice to see you all communicating online, that's marvelous. Best of luck to those of you still waiting to for your acceptance letters!

    Congratulations Brittany!!! hope you dont mind if i pick your brain a little...When did u submit your application? Also, when did they tell you the program starts?

    Sure!
    So I sent the application in literally on the day it was due and heard back in late December. I was also apparently missing one transcript (I have 6 total) and a form from my school. Which I mailed right away and surprisingly didn't seem to be a problem..

    And the program starts May 16th, so I hear..

    I was just accepted into the Accelerated BSN Summer 2011 too! I would love to get to know the other people who have been accepted as well because Miami is going to be a completely new city for me. I'm currently still in Undergrad at Alcorn State University (in Mississippi) but I graduate this may (Biology degree), only to jump right into this nursing program! I'll be 22 when I graduate.

    And i'm on Facebook:Catherine Bridges

    Also for those who are already in this program, i was wondering where students normally live? Any advice on getting through this next year would also be very helpful!
    Thanks!!!

    Hello All,

    I will be attending the ABSN program at Miami in May. Looking forward to chatting with and meeting all of you.

    I will be relocating from Denver so I am interested in recommendations about locations to live or any advice about the program/Miami in general as well. I have read some of the other forums about these topics, but was wondering how the older recommendations worked out (i.e the good, bad about living locations, would you live there again, how did you like the program, etc).

    email: rwisler72@gmail.com

    Thanks,
    Rich
